How to measure API Requests for licencing

Hi,

I'm looking at the number of API requests allowed per 24 hours on https://docs.microsoft.com/en-gb/power-platform/admin/api-request-limits-allocations

E.g. Office licenses (that include Power Apps/Power Automate) are allowed 2000 API Requests in 24 hours.

How do you measure this? E.g. My Power Automate flow has two connections: Office 365 Outlook and SharePoint Online. It includes:

  • 1x SharePoint trigger
  • 5/6x SharePoint actions (depending on the flow branch)
  • 1/2x Outlook actions (depending on the flow branch).

So each time the flow triggers, is it just 2 API Requests because it uses 2 connections, or more because of the amount of actions?

If this is the only flow running in an account with an Office licence assigned as described above (2000 requests/24 hours), will the flow be allowed to run 1000 times every 24 hours, or much less because of the number of actions?

Thanks!

It is based on the number of flow actions not on the number of connectors.

Hi @RezaDorrani, thanks for your reply. And I guess a trigger counts as an action? So for my example above, based on it taking the heavier branch, this flow would use 9 actions each time, it would allowed to run 222 times in 24 hours for it to fit within an Office licence that includes Power Apps/Power Automate?
