Keep getting error "Request failed. Too many requests sent to the service."

I have created an approval flow for a timesheet in PowerApps.  When I run the flow, an approval email is supposed to be sent to the manager.  However, I keep getting the following error before the approval is sent:  "The request failed.  Too many requests sent to the service.  Try again later."


I am only sending one approval request so I do not understand why I'm having this issue.  Any help fixing this would be greatly appreciated.

 Hi @tgiard,


Could you please share a screenshot of your flow’s configuration?

Further, could you show a bit more about your error message?

I suppose that you have get a http request 429 error, this error is caused by too many requests.

I have made a test on my side and don’t have the issue that you mentioned.
