Hi @Edilson_Reis 


Please check below limitation of powerbi api which is being called in your flow


  • For Shared capacities, a maximum of eight requests per day, including refreshes executed by using scheduled refresh, can be initiated.
  • For Shared capacities, only notifyOption can be specified in the request body.
  • Enhanced refresh is not supported for shared capacities.
  • For enhanced refresh, notifyOption is not required and must be excluded from the request body. However, one or more parameters other than notifyOption are required.
  • For Premium capacities, the maximum requests per day is only limited by the available resources in the capacity. If available resources are overloaded, refreshes are throttled until the load is reduced. The refresh will fail if throttling exceeds 1 hour.


Is it failing continuously or failed at times? It might be reaching the limit as mentioned above


Hello @Edilson_Reis 


This happens when you exceed the capacity number of actions you are to do. In case your flows are throttled you can try using the Pay-as-you-go to ensure that none of the flows experience this. Also, you can try redesigning your flow to use fewer actions.
