How to count api call for free license?

According to this question:, I would like to know about how to count an API call?


In the picture below, my flow contain a step "Start an approval" that assigned to 10  people.

There is a "Condition" step that iterates approval responses then send an email for both approved or rejected.


How to count an API call for the above scenario?


  • "Start an approval" is counted 1 or 10?
  • Condition that contain "Response" is counted 1 or 10?
  • "Send email" is counted 1 or 10?
  • The API call usage will be counted as requester's usage who starts flow or requester + approver?

Hi @PiyapongD 


Each step is counter as 1.

Any steps in a loop, would run the number of times the loop runs.

So if 5 steps in a loop and the loop runs 5 times that is 25 steps.
