SIMPLE flow question (CDS license)



we are new to o365, and im testing flows.

In my first flow i use a template flow:


when a element is inserted in a sharepoint list --> mail to the approver --> if ok --> move the element to another list...


but the mail never sends because the "approval" connector fails with '429' i need a CDS dabase to run it.

My license is Enterprise, and i also have flow free enough to run the flow?


if not, can i do the same without the approvals connector?

Hi @javier_perez
Why don't you use the action "Send an email with options"? Ok,this doesn't give you the full approval experience but if you are only after a yes / no  kind of response then this could quite well work for you.

Hi @javier_perez,


Could you please share a screenshot of the flow run history when it run failed?

Could you please share more details about the error message?


I agree with @Pieter_Veenstra's suggestion that you could take a try with the "Send an email with options" action and you could create a flow as below:

Re: SIMPLE flow question (CDS license)

Thanks all


now i figured out that i need more that a Free flow license to run "approvals" connector... (i dont know why i think this must be a basic and free feature for o365 enterprise license....) not preety much secure about it:


If any of you can clarify if with a enterprise license can i run a approval flow or not, it would be very good. 


For now i try to run the flow as you suggests.


Thank you.

Re: SIMPLE flow question (CDS license)

i can confirm that to use the "approvals" connector you have to use a license different from the ones you have with a enterprise o365.


in my case i activate a trial: PowerApps Plan 2 Trial, and now the approvals connector works.

Hello you comment i dont have a fully approval experience.... the comments for rejected are very important, and you dont have it in this kind of flow. Approval connector give you that.

Anyway can be a good approach


thank you
