What is the SQL Limit for API calls?

Hello,

 

I'm think im hitting an API limitation for a sql server.  I find different limitations listed all over.  Can anyone confirm what the actual limitation is?  Im making 80 API calls and its throwing me an error. 

 

300 calls per person per 30 seconds: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/connectors/sql/

800 per connection per 10 seconds: https://veenstra.me.uk/2018/07/17/microsoft-flow-connector-limits/ (I found this link from this PA community post: https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Building-PowerApps-Formerly/Rate-Limit-Exceeded-SQL-On-Premesis/...)

 

I am using the SQL Server connection not azure sql data connection.

Hi @samuelJ ,

The SQL API Call is actually limited to per connection rather than per user. If you have 100 people, all of them use same SQL Connection, in 10 seconds, each of them could send a SQL API Request.

@v-xida-msft thanks for you reply. 

 

This is what I am looking for.  There are different limiation listed through out documents.  I will take this to be the true limitation though. 

 

One other follow up before I accept anything as a solution.  Taking the below snap shot from the article you linked.  Reading it literally, the limiation is per connection.  Meaning if I have a sql connection in a app and 100 people are using the app essentialy each person can only make one API call with in that 10 seconds?  Am I interpretting this wrong?  Is the limitation actually per logged in user and not the connection as a whole?

@v-xida-msft , thank you for this clarification.  I accept this as the solution.  

 

With that being said.  This limitation takes powerapps out of the running to be ran on a company wide scale.  If I want to deploy an app that will be used by hundreds of users even if I can get all their API calls down to one somehow.  Only 100 of then could use it at the same time, and even then it could run into issues...  

 

Thanks.
