API Call Limit

When you set the cadence (interval + frequency) of a connector that is making a call against an API through its connector that has a limitation (i.e. if I set a frequency of 1 minute checks, and the API has a 100 calls per minute limitation) and I exceed that limitation, what happens to the remaining information?  Does it queue or does it get dropped?

Hi @WiggityZwiggity

 

It would be dropped if exceed the api per minute call limitation.

Thanks @v-yuazh-msft!  That makes sense.  If I have multiple Flows using the same API connector through a single connection I am trying to understand how to best avoid overuse of that connection by changing the frequency of the connector performing checks.  If you decrease the frequency up (i.e. more time) does that then just batch all activity and quickly cause you to consume calls up to the limit and therefore increase the frequency (i.e. less time) to prevent that from happening?  Or is it the opposite strategy?
