I have created a flow to update a graph in Power BI
apparently according to flow i get
'2,000 runs per month
something isn't adding up here... or I lack understanding on how this works?
If you are using Microsoft Flow within Office 365, Dynamics 365, Microsoft Flow Plan 1 and Plan 2, the runs are pooled across all users in the company, which is not count per user.
You (or your company ) may need to buy more flow runs in increments of 50,000 flow runs per month.
This is documented here:
Hope this information is helpful.
while that may be true it still doens't explain how hundreds of flows got execute in just a few hours? it says my particular flow ran 347 x when i ran it maximum around 5 hours and its says it runs every 5 minutes? My calculations make that 60 flows?
It also means that its not a very sensible solution if you streaming data from twitter as you would literally need tens of thousands of flows for each month and thats only one application
...and indeed, offically the pricing plan indicates that it is maxmimun 5 minutes -> probably more frequent.
You are right we need a better view on the flow consumption/quota; this is urgent.
Given that Flow is built on the Azure Logic App, it could be that what they call a "Run" in Flow is really an "Action" in Logic Apps, and each action is the billable unit. https://peter.intheazuresky.com/2017/02/24/be-careful-of-the-logic-app-consumption-prizing-model/
So if your Flow has 10 things that it does (Actions), then each time it is triggered and does something, you are getting charged for 10 Runs.
sure but i think thats still problematic because even the premium flow isn't unlimited? Somethings not adding up here
Did you ever figure out how this works? My plan allegedly allows me to run Flows every 5 minutes (2000 per month), but I can run as many Flows as I want within 5 minutes.
