Quotas and limits

This document contains the limits and request quotas that apply to Managed Service for Microsoft Active Directory.

A quota limit restricts how much of a shared Google Cloud resource your Google Cloud project can use, including hardware, software, and network components. Therefore, quota limits are a part of a system that does the following:

  • Monitors your use or consumption of Google Cloud products and services.
  • Restricts your consumption of those resources for reasons, which include ensuring fairness and reducing spikes in usage.
  • Maintains configurations that automatically enforce prescribed restrictions.
  • Provides a means to request or make changes to the quota.

In most cases, when a quota limit is exceeded, the system immediately blocks access to the relevant Google resource, and the task that you're trying to perform fails. In most cases, quota limits apply to each Google Cloud project and are shared across all applications and IP addresses that use that Google Cloud project.

To increase or decrease most quota limits, use the Google Cloud console. For more information, see Request a higher quota limit.

There are also limits on Managed Microsoft AD resources. These limits are unrelated to the quota system. Limits cannot be changed unless otherwise stated.


Quota Value
Requests 60 requests per minute per project

Additionally, because Managed Microsoft AD uses Cloud DNS, the quotas for Cloud DNS also apply.

Check your quotas

To check the current quotas for resources in your project, go to the Quotas page in the Google Cloud console.


Limit Value Notes
Google-managed Microsoft AD domains per project 2 To increase this limit, contact Google Cloud Support.
Regions per domain 4

Additionally, because Managed Microsoft AD uses VPC Network Peering, the VPC Network Peering limits also apply.
