What you need to know

  • Microsoft increased the Power platform daily request limits that have been in place.
  • Power Apps, Power Automate, Power Virtual Agents, and Dynamics 365 are affected by this change.
  • The limit of the Power Automate per user plan increased from 5,000 requests per user per day to 40,000 requests per user per day.

Microsoft announced a sizeable adjustment in the daily request volume throttles for Power Platform. The higher limits have been put in place to meet the needs of the "vast majority of customer scenarios," according to Microsoft (opens in new tab). Additionally, Microsoft will allow customers with high scale scenarios to only pay for the Power Platform requests above the newly raised limits. The change increases the limits for Power Apps, Power Automate, Power Virtual Agents, and Dynamics 365 users.

Power Apps allow businesses to build and share low-code applications. Request limits are in place to ensure that apps can handle the load they're tasked with. The increased limit should allow a large number of Power Apps to handle higher workloads. Microsoft details how Power Platform requests work in a support document (opens in new tab).

Here are the new licensed user request limits:

ProductsRequests per paid license per 24 hours
Paid user licenses for Power Platform (excludes Power Apps per App, Power Automate per flow, and Power Virtual Agents) and Dynamics 365 excluding D365 Team Member40,000
Power Apps pay-as-you-go plan, and paid licensed users for Power Apps per app, Microsoft 365 plans with Power Platform access, and Dynamics 365 Team Member6,000
Power Automate per flow plan, Power Virtual Agents base offer, and Power Virtual Agents add-on pack250,000

The change was announced on November 14, 2021, and is already reflected in Microsoft's support documentation.
