Use this endpoint to submit the InsightFaceSwap /saveid command to your InsightFaceSwap Discord channel. The result will be returned in the response body and can also be sent as a callback to an optional replyUrl.

This is a blocking call, you will not be able to make another call to the same InsightFaceSwap Discord channel until the current call is completed. The average execution time is approximately 3 to 10 seconds. If you expect high load and need to make multiple concurrent calls, please consider setting up multiple InsightFaceSwap accounts.

It is important not to use the InsightFaceSwap account setup for API access for any purposes other than its intended use, such as executing /saveid or any other InsightFaceSwap commands manually or in conjunction with any other automation tools. The API internally tracks the usage of the InsightFaceSwap account, including the number of currently active executions. Using it for other activities may cause API to function incorrectly.

  • 429 Too Many Requests

    Wait in a loop for at least 10..30 seconds and retry again.

    There are two possible cases for API response 429.

    1. API query is full and can not accept new faceswap/saveid requests.
       "error": "Unable to lock Discord after <attempts> attempts",
       "code": 429
    2. The API received an HTTP status 429 from the Discord API when it attempted to POST to the /interactions endpoint. Under normal circumstances, this should be a rare occurrence because the API is designed to strictly adhere to Discord rate limits. However, in certain scenarios, Discord may still issue a 429 response.
       "error": "Discord /interactions failed with HTTP status 429",
       "errorDetails": "{\"global\":true,\"message\":\"You are being rate limited.\",\"retry_after\":10}",
       "code": 429
