Power Automate API Request Limit

We have Office licenses (that include Power Apps/Power Automate). So, Per user 2000 API Requests are available per day.


In my company we have 10,000 Licensed User.


I have created a flow which is 100 Step. So, Each connector requests will be processed by API. So, when user submit the request Approximately 100 request will be consumed for per request.


My question is, API Request limits will be consumed from Flow Owner or who submitting the request?

Also Please help me that below my understanding is correct or not


No. of API Request for Per User : 2000
No. of Licensed User : 10,000
So, Total Available API Request Limit for my tenant will be : 10,000*2000 = 20000000 Per day

Approximately Daily request will be : No. of request submitting user * No. flow step = 4000*100 = 400000 per day


As per my understanding, Daily Available limits for the tenant : 20000000 per day and my daily request will be 400000 per day which is lesser than daily available request.

Hi @rprakashpb2007 ,


My question is, API Request limits will be consumed from Flow Owner or who submitting the request?

API requests will be based on flow Owner (if automated flows). Fort instant flows or item selected flows or flows triggered from Power Apps, it would be the user submitting the request.


No. of API Request for Per User : 2000
No. of Licensed User : 10,000
So, Total Available API Request Limit for my tenant will be : 10,000*2000 = 20000000 Per day

No. API requests is per user account. There is not tenant wide request limit. Each user has their own limit.

Hi Dual Super User II,


Thanks for the reply


I have understood the first answer.


In Second question,
If user reached the 2000 API Requests in single day and same user submit the new request on same day, Does flow will get triggered or user account will be disabled?




I Understood that 2000 API Request is for user account, If another user submit the request on same day, Does Flow will get triggered?

Hi @rprakashpb2007 


If user reached the 2000 API Requests in single day and same user submit the new request on same day, Does flow will get triggered or user account will be disabled?


Currently, user will only be warned about it. Flow also will get a new option called Profile in which warnings will be provided. If consistently the user or flow exceeds the limits, then it may be disabled. Waiting for official announcement from MSFT.

Hi there,


So I am wondering how this reflects in the admin dashboard: 
It says that 43 thousand api requests were made from which around 3400 were from me. If It is really 2000 API request per user then I should have received a warning which I didn't plus I can still execute them without issues. Also as you can see in the image there are only 3 actual users, where did all the other requests go (yes the white space in the image between the names are the other 2 users) because all users have a total of around 4000 requests which would mean that 39000 would come from out of the blue which doesn't make sense?


Now when I was looking at my license I saw I had 3 licenses:

Power Apps Plan 2 trial

Power Automate Free

Power Apps per user plan (which is 5000 requests apparently)


So I don't know how much the other licenses will add to my personal Api Request pool but it would mean that I have atleast 5000 requests a day available which would make more sense in this case, as to why i didn't receive any warnings since I didn't achieve it yet.


Could someone just explain what is actually the case, because the documentation doesn't provide enough details about this.


Thanks in advance!


Kind regards,


Billy Cottrell

Hi @RezaDorrani ,


Thank you for your response. just two quick questions,

  1. would you please specify what is the "item selected flows" you mentioned above?
  2. what about business process flow, would that the one mentioned as "flows triggered from Power Apps"?

Thank you
