Number of Template Actions Limit exceeded: Maximum 500 and actual 504

Hello,

I've been working on a complex Flow for the past few weeks. I'm nearly complete, but just hit this error message.

What does this mean?

Yes the number of actions you can add to a Flow is limited.  You can read about all the limits to Flow here:

I had to delete 4 actions to get the Flow to save. Is there a cap of 500 Actions within a Flow?

@ericonline 

 

weird - number of actions per flow is 250

How did yours go to 500 in the first place 🙂

 

You would have to break your flow into smaller modules

Make 1 flow call another

Hi @RezaDorrani , i'm not sure how I got the Flow to accept 500 Actions. I am using a Condition early then 4 Switch Actions (2 maxxed out at 25ea). Maybe the way I split it up "tricked" Flow into allowing more actions. 

Going to split the Flow now into two distinct jobs. This has been quite a Flow! It heavily leverages the "Send an HTTP Request to Sharepoint" Action. So far I've overcome:

  • Status 400
  • Status 401
  • Status 502
  • Threshold error
  • View >5k items error
  • 25 max Switch limit and now
  • 500 (250?) Flow Action limit!

Testing the boundaries!!
