2000 API call limit with service/generic account

I was suggested by MS that the best practice to deploy a non-user PowerAutomate is by using service/generic account (with user license E3 e.g.), this will avoid having the issue where user left the company.

Since I will have more than one non-user PowerAutomate to deploy, it may soon hit the API call limit if I use 1 service account to deploy.

Can anyone share your way on arranging the service account?
Are you using 1 service account to deploy multiple PowerAutomate OR 1 service account for 1 PowerAutomate?
Or, if you have any other better way to do?

Thank you

PS: Per Plan license $100/month for 1 PowerAutomate is just not worth it for me at this time, because my PowerAutomates are quite small in nature

hi @agtcodecloud I work as consultor and I recommend to all my clients depending on the number of users depending on the process. Its a difficult part if you don't know your org but I did somehting linke this.


In some org we automate a Delivery Process, so every user sends per day 200 submitions so in a month more or less 6000 submitions, for that kind of process I recomend to user 1 acount with payed PA suscription because we use Premium Conectors.



And for the process that sends less that 50 Submistions per day just 1 account that could run until 5 flows.


All of that accounts are non-users, and are outside rules org to avoid changing passwords (This solveds lots of problems)

Did I answer your question? Please consider to Mark
