This feature brings a consumption-based overage model to all licenses by letting users pay for additional Microsoft Power Platform requests (previously called API requests) through their Azure subscription. Once set up, Power Automate no longer throttles Power Platform requests from the flows.

Feature details

This feature brings a pay-as-you-go, consumption-based overage model to all Power Automate licenses, allowing admins to pay for additional Power Platform requests through their Azure subscription.

Once set up in the Power Platform admin center, Power Automate no longer throttles Power Platform (API) requests from the flows in that environment. This pay-as-you-go model has three Azure meters, which are turned on simultaneously. Here are the three meters:

  1. Power Apps per app meter: This meter allows users to use the apps without any licenses. Active app usage is billed against the Azure subscription. An active user is a user who launches an app at least once monthly. People with existing user licenses are excluded from billing.
  2. Platform requests meter: With this meter, overages beyond the licensed Power Platform requests limits are charged against the Azure subscription.
  3. Dataverse meter: With this meter, you can pay for your storage usage in an environment.

Like other Azure bills, an itemized report of all charges is available with each billing statement.
