Flow listening for HTTP post


I am trying to get data from my home automation system in Flow. Tried with HTTP GET, but unfortunately I have no way authenticating into the home automation system through Flow.

Therefore, I started wondering - in my home automation system I can trigger HTTP POST that can send data somewhere, thus resolving my authentication challenge if there is something on the other end receiving the data. Is there a way to make Flow listen / receive data and then process it?

Re: Flow listening for HTTP post

Hi @kirilizov,


Could you please share a bit more about the home automation system that you mentioned?

Could you please show a bit more about your scenario?


Microsoft Flow use triggers to monitor the request currently, if you want your flow to listen/receive data, please consider take a try to use "HTTP" trigger or "HTTP Request trigger" as the trigger of your flow.


More details about the "HTTP Request trigger", please check the following article:
