New Flow licensing - Daily API requests account attribution

Hi,

With the new licensing changes, how are API requests calculated and which user is it calculated against? Using this example with 2 users who have O365 e3 accounts:

1. In a SharePoint online list, a user (Rob) manually selects and item, selects Flow dropdown -> starts a Flow
2. This Flow has an action that gets an item from another list. This action was created by James in the Flow

Which account does step 2, the API call to the SharePoint list, get attributed to?

The Api will be counted against the user who supplies the context for the connectors in the Flow. So since the Flow is started manually by Rob I would expect that the API would count against Rob as a user.

 

But I wouldn't worry about it too much. Microsoft has said that based on telemetry that they've been keeping track of a very small percentage of users will ever come close to the daily quota of APIs. Average users will not be affected. So I wouldn't start worrying about running out of APIs if you aren't careful.
