Re: Number of Concrrent Active Users for External Users

Hi @RishiBhutani ,

Could you please share a bit more about your scenario?

Do you want to know how many active users could run same app at the same time?

 

Currently, there is no mandatory limits on the amount of active users who could run same app at the same time within PowerApps. But the number of Concrrent active uses who run same app would affect the app's performance (I agree with @mdevaney 's thought almost).

 

If multiple users run same app, the Request API Calls to your data source server would increase. Normally, there are some API Calls Throttling Limits on data source server. The number of Concrrent Active Users of an app would increase pressure on the data process of the data source server.

 

In addition, if multipe users writing data back to same data source using PowerApps app, they may face Conflict error. E.G. multiple users editing same record within the data source through the app.

PowerApps itself does not have any concurrent user limit. However, your user count WILL affect the performance of your datasource. Many apps are OK in SharePoint but at some point you have to consider Azure SQL/CDS for their ability to handle large datasets and several concurrent users.
