If something is affected by a "reservation", you could consider it as "reserved", similarly if something is affected by a "lock", it is considered "locked".

How would you address something which is affected by a quota?

    There are examples online of the rare compound quota-restricted. – Edwin Ashworth Jul 18 '16 at 14:07
  • As a salesman, I can tell you I'm quota-carrying. Or, more colorfully, I carry a bag, unlike those management guys up in their ivory tower (note to management reading this: this is just an illustration of an English idiom, you know I love you guys ;). – Dan Bron Jul 19 '16 at 19:30

Since quota has only a noun form, I guess we need to go with a synonym for the adjective form. See if the adjective form of ration works:

rationed - Adj. 1. rationed - distributed equitably in limited individual portions
