SharePoint list to flow trigger limit before getting throttled

Hi All,


Need help please. I have a office 365 E3 license and that i think includes free flow license ?


My problem is with approval flows which is getting throttled with status running (1 retry occured, 429)

-The trigger to my flow is when a new item is created in sharepoint list.

-this then gets the metadata

-sends an acknoledgement email to user

-starts and waits for an approval

-once approval is received it sends email to user and updates a column in sharepoint as "approved".


I have set the retry policy to "Fixed Interval" with 10 and "PT1M" on each of the sharepoint related step.


I want to understand how many requets can i make in a minute or in a hour before i get throttled?

I did read the article below but its not very clear, i understand that its difficult to perhaps give a number but what could be the maximum ?


Thank you all in advance
