Hi @Prashant_mittal,

 

It seems that the "Start an approval" action could only assign the request to the max of 17 users each time.

What is the "Approval Type" in your  "Start an approval" action?

 

You could add two "Start an approval" actions to ahieve your needs as an alternative way if the "Approval Type" is "Everyone from the assigned list" in your  "Start an approval" action, you could refer to screenshot below to create the flow:

The expression in the Condition as below:

@and(equals(body('Start_an_approval')?['response'], 'Approve'),equals(body('Start_an_approval_2')?['response'], 'Approve'))

 

 

If the "Approval Type" is "Anyone from the assigned list" in your  "Start an approval" action, I afraid that there is no ant alternative way to achieve the same requirement.

 

Best regards,

Alice
