Custom Configuration settings

So I'm building a flow using sharepoint and in most of the connectors I have to enter a url. Now I'm just in dev - but there will be test and live environments as well as other developers who might want their own environments.


At present I've used a variable to store the url and enter that in places where I need it. This though has problems in some places like update and also the trigger. 


So it would be nice to have some area to have some 'static' config variables that were set in stone and able to use throughout the flow.

Hi @rhousham ,


If your flow are in solutions, you can look into environment variables here.


Other than that, you can look at using a key vault and store as secrets or have a SharePoint list. Will still be a bit of work accessing the values.

This does seem to be the way, for me the environment variables didn't pop up straight away when I started using them.

But after a few hours they seem to have started to come through. This does seem like the best stratergy but at present feels clunky and there is something amiss.
