Hey Guys, 
My question is how many external API calls we can make in Scipting Extension Block per execution.
FYI, my usecase is to read records(around 2000) from a table view, make 2000 API calls for all of these records, and then finally update the records in a batch update of 50.
I particularly want to know that if there's any limitation on making external API calls in scripting extension block?
Thanks!!

Hi @ruby_rails, it's a good question... I have setups, where I am making 200+ API calls, but not 2000. The 30 second run time limit only counts for automation scripts, so no issue there. I think there is some limit related to remoteFetchAsync, but if it's individual fetch calls for every record, it should be fine. Will just take a very long time.
