Flow Management - missing connectionReferences in Flow Properties

According to the documentation, Flow item should contains connectionReferences property

But looking at the JSON output or trying to get it from Flow action, it's not avaialable. Am I missing anything?

Hi @marekbuban,


I have made a test on my side and don't have the issue that you mentioned.

The screenshot of the flow as below:


The flow would run successfully as below:




The value from  dynamic content isn't an array so you couldn't add an Apply to each from the connectionReferences Dynamic content.


Best regards,


Thanks Alice for your answer. I've replicated your steps and it indeed didn't throw an error, but output of that action is empty. Were you able to get list of connectors used in your Flows please?




Hi @v-yuazh-msft,


please see attached images below, is output expected to be empty? If I click on download, empty page is opened which is same basically for JSON output.

Also I've attached image of the JSON output that has no "connectionReferences" in properties. I've made similar Flow for PowerApps and all was working fine using PA for Admins connector.

@marekbuban, did you find a resolution to this issue? I'm running into the same problem with Power Automate Management - List Flows as Admin action. connectionReferences is returning an empty value after being passed through Compose.

For future reference, and to tie back to my previous post regarding connectionReferences being empty, created a workaround by calling Get Flow as Admin within the Apply to each loop, then passing it the Flow Name value from List Flows as Admin from within the loop.


Not sure what happened, but connectionReferences is NOT set within the List Flows as Admin object.
