Does flow provide APIs to build, connect and test?

Hello, 

 

I built a Microsoft flow in my test environment and that works perfectly! Now my questions are: 

 

1). Can I export my Microsoft flow and add it to my git repo? I can see it allows me to export my Flow as .json or .zip. But both of them included the connection info with my test environment. So I would not able to use it when I export it to my prod solution

 

2) Does it provide APIs for me to build, deploy and test my flow? So I can integrate the whole process to my CI/CD pipiline.

 

Much appreciated if anyone can help!

Hi @Jeff0002 ,

 

About #1, we are now able to export and import flows across environments with packaging. After you exported flow from the test environment, you could then import the flow to another environment.

When importing a flow, you can choose to create a new flow, then select the connections that are required to setup the flow as part of the import process.

Please check the following blog for more details:

About #2, all flows will be stored in Common Data Service and leverage the rick Web API. This content covers the management of flows included on the Solutions tab in Microsoft Flow. However, Flows under My Flows are currently not supported by these APIs.

Please check the following docs for more info:

Microsoft Flow Web API

Microsoft Flow Web APIs available

Perform operations using the Web API

 

 

Best regards,

Mabel

Thanks for your reply, Mabel. @v-yamao-msft 

 

One follow-up question, what's the difference between Flows under Solution tab and under My Flows Tab?

Hi @Jeff0002 ,

 

Previously, we provided the ability to export and import a single flow from one environment to another environment, while we could export and import flows a set of under Solutions.
