Flow Count Limit Quota

This document explains the flow count limit quota.

You MUST have either the Service Account or Quota Manager credentials to apply this quota.

Quota sync

Before you can use this quota you MUST sync your existing flow counts with the quotatxns DB tables. Use https://api.elastic.io/sidedoor/quotatxns/sync/flow endpoint to POST using the Service Account credentials.

API Call Blueprint

To apply quota make an HTTP POST to https://api.elastic.io/v2/quotas/quota_type/context_expression endpoint using the correct credentials and the following body:

{
    "data": {
        "quotaType": "quota_type",
        "context": "context_expression",
        "limit": 10
    }
}

quotaType

Here are the types to use in context of flow count limit quota:

  • per_workspace_flow_count_limit - use this to set flow count limit in a workspace,
  • per_contract_flow_count_limit - use this to set flow count limit in a contract,
  • per_tenant_flow_count_limit - use to set tenant-wide flow count limit.

You must use one of the quota types in the API POST URL as well. like /v2/quotas/per_workspace_flow_count_limit/context_expression.

context

The context expression depends on the quotaType you want to apply.

  • Set the context to TENANT_ID.CONTRACT_ID.WORKSPACE_ID if you want to set the quota for a workspace (per_workspace_flow_count_limit).
  • Set the context to TENANT_ID.CONTRACT_ID if you want to set the quota for a contract (per_contract_flow_count_limit).
  • Set the context to TENANT_ID if you want to set the quota for a tenant (per_tenant_flow_count_limit).

You can use context expression to set broader quota limits.

  • Set TENANT_ID.CONTRACT_ID.ANY context if you want to apply the quota to all workspaces in the contract.
  • Set TENANT_ID.ANY context if you want to apply the quota for all contracts in the tenant.
  • Set ANY context to apply your quota for all tenants in the installation.

You must use the same context in the API POST URL as well. like /v2/quotas/quota_type/TENANT_ID.CONTRACT_ID.WORKSPACE_ID.

limit

The quota limit can have two values:

  • Set a number like 10 or 20 to limit number of flows, or
  • Set -1 if you want unlimited quota.
  • Set 0 to disable the quota.

Rules

When you set flow count limit the following actions would trigger quota check and an error notification in the user interface if the action causes quota exhaustion:

  • Increase usage on flow creation
  • Decrease usage on flow deletion
  • Increase usage on flow export/copy
  • Increase usage on recipe activation into full workspace (production)
  • Decrease usage in case of switching workspace from full to limited (production to developer)
  • Increase usage in case of promoting workspace from limited to full (developer to production)

Exceptions

The following exceptions exist to the above rules:

  • We don’t check and increase quota if exporting flow on top of existing flow
  • We don’t count debug and retry flows
  • We don’t count quota for limited workspaces
