How to resolve threshold error?

All of sudden, I am getting below error in the flow.
Number of write requests for identity '3acffbad-b43e-4d4d-1da4c070ff01' exceeded the limit of '1000' over time window of '00:05:00'.
How can I resolve this error? I am getting this error in all the actions of my flow which tries to update the SharePoint List.

Hi @dpSoHo 


You're hitting a threshold:


Microsoft recommends the following (quoting from the website):

  • Decreasing the total number of records that can be selected in a list. If the number of items displayed in a list is reduced to 50, the user would need to perform this operation 120 times within 300 seconds. The user would have to complete the operation on each list within 2.5 seconds.
  • Combine the selected operations into a batch. A batch can contain up to 1000 operations and will avoid the number of requests limit. However, you will need to be prepared for the execution time limit.
