Hi,

I'm a bit confused about what the correct cache time behaviour for corporation API calls should be. If I make a call with an account then I get the fresh information and cached until time. If I then make another call to the same API page for the same corporation but with a different account, what should I expect?

For assets I get the same cache until value as the first call. For industry jobs I get a new cache timer. What should I assume here? Obviously it would be nice to be able to increase the rate of updating when I have more than 1 corporation API key, but I don't want to code that if it's not expected behaviour.

When using more than one key it's best to think of the cachedUntil time from the first call to the API as the soonest you have a chance to get new data and at best some APIs let you re-request the same data before that time with other keys. Using more than one corporation key doesn't let you get the data any sooner.

Thanks for clearing that up. A bit annoying, but less coding for me!
