Create a flow through API

Hello

How can I create and configure new flow through API? 

Add tasks, set parameters, execution order etc.

Thank you

Re: Create a flow through API

I don't think that this is currently possbile. If you look at the Flow Management connector in Flow then you will see that you can create a new flow by feeding the JSON of the flow into the flow ( you could use this to create a copy of an existing flow). The problem however will be setting up the connections into other applications.

@Pieter_Veenstra, Thank you for a hint. Described way with JSON looks too restrictive, especially in sense of manual adjustments afterwards. Pity that there is no universal API for this.

Hi @bzinchenko,

 

Do you want to create a flow (Microsoft Flow) via Rest API?

 

Creating a flow via Rest API is not supported in Microsoft Flow currently, if you would like this feature to be added in Microsoft Flow, please submit an idea to Flow Ideas Forum:

https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Flow-Ideas/idb-p/FlowIdeas

 

In addition, you could consider take a try to create a Azure Logic App workflow via Rest API. More details about creating a Azure Logic App Workflows via Rest API, please check the following article:

Workflow Management Rest API

 

 

Best regards,

Kris

Re: Create a flow through API

Hello @v-xida-msft,

 

Thank you for a perfect guess! In fact, I was searching for an extended way to interact with Flow through REST. It can have huge value in integration of Flow into wider enterprise execution contexts and advanced process modeling. I appreciate the idea and opportunity to suggest it as a feature and will definitely do so right now.

 

Sincerely

Hi @Pieter_Veenstra @v-xida-msft @bzinchenko

 

Now is it available any API or SDK for Microsoft Flow?


Thanks

As long you the flows are within the same flow environment then you can probabaly use the FLowManagement connector. I have however always struggled to replicate connections using this connector when I try to copy flows from one environment to another.
