How to Identify PowerApp Used in Existing Flow

I am working with a Flow that was created by a former employee. Something is inserting records into an Excel sheet, but I cannot identify where from.

Hi @IPC_ahaas 

 

As far as I know, there isn't an easy way to do this (as you may think). My recommandation would be to have a PowerApp Admin take out an overview of all powerapps, for all the users in your organization:

 

https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Power-Apps-Governance-and/Extract-a-list-of-all-PowerApps-for-an...

 

And go through this list manually. It's also good to do this from time to time to clean up unused apps etc.

 

Let me know if you have any further questions.

Oh Microsoft, how shortsighted.

 

So the PowerApp was likely created by the same user. I have access to the user's account. I would think, even via GUID I could see what PowerApp was the source. If I have the list of PowerApps for the user, can I see which ones have Flows attached?

This is the columns which the report returns, so again unfortuneatly, it's not possible to check the output to see connected flows. So a good work around is like you mentioned, check the GUID of the PowerApps of said user. Other than that the displayname of the PowerApp "should" give a hint. Good practice is to have a resemblence between the app and the flow.

Good luck!

I played with the scripts on the page you linked, but there are many PowerApps made by this user. Without knowing the name or GUID of the PowerApp used within the Flow, searching for PowerApps made by the user provides nothing.

 

What within the Flow, as you see in my screenshot, can I use to identify the PowerApp that is feeding the Excel sheet?

Hi @IPC_ahaas ,

 

I suggest you use the 'PowerAppsV2' trigger instead, cause in this way you could defined the parameter in the trigger by your self and will not confuse them.

I didn't build the Flow, I'm just now in charge of vetting all of them and figuring out what they do and why. With no way to see what PowerApp is referenced in the Flow, I'll have to disable it and see who screams. Thanks Microsoft!
