flows turning off/suspending without notice and "stop flow" config NOT added.

Hello, lately i'm finding my flows getting turned off, there doesn't appear to be any reason for it, nothing in runs or things like that, the flows run over short time, and complete quickly. i have 5 flows with this configuration for dropping attachements into a dropbox folder.

I'm checking daily and finding that one or 2 different flows a day are being turned off.

Hi @Robbosham , maybe your flows exceeded the api call per day limit.

Hope it helped you.

Should I be getting a message saying i'm exceeding these? from what i glanced through i couldn't really determine how may calls it has but i'd say it'd be no more than 20 times a day its called


You can estimate the count of API calls by following these steps: Power Automate Flow API Calls - How are they counted - CRM Innovation - Microsoft Dynamics 365 Consu...


"Throughput limits

Here are the time-bound limits for a single version of a cloud flow definition. These limits apply across all runs of the flow version, and are calculated on sliding windows.

If a cloud flow exceeds one of the limits, activity for the flow will be slowed and will automatically resume when the sliding window has activity below the limit. However, if a cloud flow consistently remains above the limits for 14 days, it will be turned off (see above duration limits). Be sure to monitor email for notifications about such flows. If a cloud flow consistently exceeds the limits, you will need to update the flow to remain below the limits to prevent it from being turned off."

I got it from Microsoft Docs:
