    Handling Workflow Throttling

    Status: Validated

    QUESTION
    What are Microsoft's best practices for handling Workflow Throttling?
    ANSWER
    • Reduce the number of operations per request;
    • Reduce the frequency of calls;
    • Use incremental back off to reduce the number and frequency of calls until no more throttling occurs.
    Incremental back off uses progressively longer waits between retries before trying again to run the code that was throttled. Backing off is the fastest way to handle being throttled because SharePoint Online continues to log resource usage while a user is being throttled.
