Workflow limit per region RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are in the process of migrating our Scheduler Jobs to Logic Apps and are concerned about hitting the Workflow Limit per Region of 1000 as we grow.

    Is there a recommended method of working with this limit via multiple actions with a single trigger or some other way to help ensure we're not hitting this ceiling?

    Our current structure is User tries to schedule something, we Create a Scheduler Job (potentially now Logic App), and that has the recurrence trigger that then puts a message on our service bus. We have enough customers that can make their own schedules that hitting the limit could be a concern over the next few years, and we would like to have a futureproofed solution so that we're not burdening our future selves with more work.

    We're using Logic apps as the recommended alternative to Scheduler Jobs, but we can entertain other solutions if they are more in line with what we're describing.

  • Hello Ryan,

    I have few follow up questions based on your post.

    1. Will the recurrence be same for all or it could be different for different workflows?

    2. When the recurrence trigger executes , what it will do apart from sending the message to ServiceBus? 

    3. What is the ideal number that you are looking for the limits?

    Alternatively you can also check the Timer trigger Azure Functions.

    1. different workflows have different recurrence patterns, set by customer preferences
    2. Some workflows will Initialize Variables before sending the message to the ServiceBus
    3. We are mostly concerned about our current customers expanding their use of the software such that we would need to split a customer's tasks across multiple regions to circumvent the 1000 limit. If the limit was maybe 5000-10000, we could use Logic Apps consistently without a worry about customer growth.

    We were focusing on Logic Apps as they were the recommended alternative to our previous solution of Scheduler Jobs. We'll also look into Azure Functions, to see if we can run a recurrence pattern and put a message on a service bus.

  • Hi Ryan -

    This is Derek, PM for both Scheduler and Logic Apps. Can you send me an email at Derek.Li (a) to discuss your options?
