Did I choose the correct platform PowerAutomate or should I use Logic Apps?

I builded a PowerAutomate with 100 actions. I got throttled many times with a "Power Automate per user plan" license because of I reached the 5000 api request limit per day. I am doubt if I used the correct platform for my workflow. Before I was using SharePoint Designer 2010 and everything was working fine without api request limitation. Should I use Logic Apps to avoid api requests limitation? 


Hello @KLD 


What is your trigger?

Your Flow could be attempting to trigger if its an automated trigger like when an item is created, you can help keep your API limits down by using trigger conditions.

You could use Logic Apps. It really would depend on if you planned on building more Flows etc. Since you could always get a higher license for Power Automate. Where Logic Apps you're paying for each run.

The trigger is modified and created a document in a SharePoint document library. We already using a condition triggers. But it is by design that we use this Power Automate for each created/modified document. But we need more as 15000 api requests per day. So I am thinking PowerAutomate does not fit. In logic apps you can dont have limitations to max 15000 api requests per day.
