Limits in Do Until condition

Hi,

 

Can we somehow skip the limits in Do Until condition, we want to keep waiting till the status is approved. Currently, we have limits of 5000 count and delay of 1 Min.

 

Thanks in Advance.

Re: Limits in Do Until condition

Actually count and timeout are mandatory. Keep in mind that:

1.a flow max duration is 30 days;

2.approval max duration is 30 days. 

3.Do until max iteration is 5000

 

so for instance you can create a loop that check every day during 30 days (or every hour during 30 day) if a task has been approved/rejected. And I think these are limitations to make sure people don't use to much CPU/Resource in the back end. You can see that as a kind of throttling

 

Cheers

Re: Limits in Do Until condition

Actually, We want to remove limits. Like in your example you have Count and Timeout. I wanted to know if we can skip the timeout limits. So that it can keep waiting until the status is Approved.

Hi @Anonymous,

 

I totally agree with what @sergeluca said. Please check the doc on Limits and configuration in Microsoft Flow for more details on the known limitations:
