New API Requests limits and allocations coming in oct 2019!

  • 1.  New API Requests limits and allocations coming in oct 2019!

    Posted 15 days ago
    Recently Microsoft has updated its documentation regarding new limits that will go in starting October 2019(?) - Requests limits and allocations

    These are the limits:
    User licenses Number of API requests / 24 hours
    Dynamics 365 Enterprise applications* 20,000
    Dynamics 365 Professional ** 10,000
    Dynamics 365 Team Member 5,000
    PowerApps per user plan  5,000 
    Microsoft Flow per user plan  5,000 
    Office licenses (that include PowerApps/Microsoft Flow)  2,000 

    Microsoft will allow for the purchase of a "Capacity Add-On" license, which will provide an additional 10,000 requests/24 hours. I have not found any information yet on the pricing for this add-on.

    One of the most concerning aspects of this change is that the "application users" will get 0 allocations. As the "app users" are used for a lot of backend integration scenarios, this is going to necessitate the purchase of add-on. The other thing that is not mentioned in this document is as to what starts happening in October 2019, when these limits are breached? Will the API start throwing exceptions (#GASP!) or will we just be notified.

    The original API service limits continue to be applicable.

    The other page that is also worth mentioning is the PowerApps and Microsoft Flow licensing FAQs for October 2019:
    1. P1 and P2 power apps licensing is going away and new "per app" and "per user" plans are coming.
    2. Dynamics 365 Enterprise licenses will no longer include general purpose PowerApps capabilities. You will continue being able to run apps based in your CRM environment, but for any other apps, in other environments, you will need a license (so I am not sure what happens to the "default" CDS environment).
    3. New Portal limits and licensing!

    Thanks for this post. is there a way to see how many API calls we are currently making to see where we are in relation to these limits?

    Hi Chad

    You can use the analytics section is the PowerApps admin portal (https://admin.powerplatform.microsoft.com).

    Thanks so much for posting @Raj Rao.  We are about to launch a project that integrates a webform into Dynamics and we are using an Application User and a Non-Interactive User so this is ​really important for us to know.

    For such a sudden change there is no information available for the cost of the capacity add on licenses.  We have a system account we use for all of our integrations, instead of leveraging user accounts.  Sounds like there are some big impacts to this recent announcement that haven't been publicized a whole lot.

    Same with us @Shawn Hickey.  We have a LOT of API calls on a daily basis.  Not sure what we will do at this point.​

    We have been building different integrations using the app user over the last 2 years and in addition, many powerbi reports pull a lot of data to provide meaningful analysis. Similarly, there are workflows that run under the non-interactive user, that update a ton of records (typically a few times a year (territory assignments, ownership changes). And now we need to either figure out how to reengineer our systems (really not many options here) or figure out how to pay the extra expense. My only hope is that the cost for the capacity add on is not much.

    Hi all,
    We've raised some questions to our Microsoft Service Delivery Manager this morning to get more clarification and how we'll be impacted.  I'll share the answers when I hear back.

    Hi, it would be great if anyone knew if this affects existing customers from 1. October this year. For example, it is clear that changes in licence types are not affecting us right away, as we are on Plan 2 already. We have a bunch of batch jobs which talk to the API during the night and exceed 20 000 calls by far.

    Thanks in advance

    Hi,

    I raised a ticket with Microsoft. The engineer advised that even they did not find the article to be very clear, so they had to go to the product team for clarification.

    I got the following outcome:

    Please see our latest comments as below:

    1. Microsoft team will update this article https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-platform/admin/api-request-limits-allocations in this week to provide more details

    2. Since you're not new customer, and your existing contract is still valid. You won't be impacted by this AP limits and allocation. It will start impacting you since Oct 1st 2020

    3. When it's enforced, even a user account exceed the API limits, this user can still use the system without problem. Microsoft won't block the user from using the system. But if such scenario occurred, your system admin user will be informed with a warning, and system user can allocate the API across your users accordingly afterward.

    4. When you renew your contact, you can discuss with Sales or Technical Account Manager about how to purchase the capacity add-ons.
      The add-ons name is PowerApps and Microsoft Flow capacity add-on.

    5. For application users, the steps to add license or capacity add-on will be updated to the article soon.

    Hope this helps

    Thanks
    Sharon
