Data Import using CDS REST API

Hi Team,


For one of PowerApp development we are planning to use CDS as data source.

We have below queries for data import using a custom WebJob from external system to CDS.


1. While importing the data using Webjob using CDS REST Api what is the API limit (threshold) for data import per user per day

2. Is there a different threshold limit for API calling using  CDS WebApi and Organization service 


I cheked below article , but it seems this is limit when calling any data source from PowerApps. I want to understand the API calling limit for code.

Re: Data Import using CDS REST API

Hi @prasaddjoshi ,

Do you want to know more about the limit of data intergration when using CDS REST API?

That's a little complex.

Firstly, the limit of data intergration:

1)For trial tenants, we have an additional limitation that a scheduled project would only run for first 50 executions.

2)To optimize performance and not overload the apps, we currently limit project executions to 500k rows per execution per project.


Secondly, the limit of CDS REST API:

Please refer this:


What's more, someone has posted a similar idea about this limit that may help you:

Re: Data Import using CDS REST API

Thanks for your response.


I am plannig to update ~25K records per week using either CDS REST API or Oragnuzaion service.


Does the limit mentioned above (500K rows) is valid is I use CDS REST API or Organization service in a console application?
