Currently our service account has this free license for power automate, and hence inside any Apply to each we can not process more than 5,000 items:

So what is the minimum license needed to be able to handle more than 5,000 items inside Apply to each?

Here are the licenses available for us:

Apply to each action has limit of 5,000 items for "Low" performance profile and 100,000 for all other performance profiles.

So, you can buy any of the below plans:

  • Buy any license/plan other than low profiles (as per your requirements) & assign the license to service account. Check this & this. Sep 28, 2021 at 9:14

A Power Automate per User will give you 5,000 API requests per 24 hours. You can add a Power Automate Capacity Add-on to grant another 10,000 API requests per 24 hours -- this particular license is not assigned to a user.
