Is it possible to refresh a PowerApps dataflow with Power Automate?



Does anyone know if it is possible to refresh a PowerApps dataflow with Power Automate?


I have been searching, but no luck yet...


Thanks in advance!

It's a pain. What I normally do is add a button that runs the flow. Just re-create the button to upgrade. However a great feature would be version controlling the flow and allowing upgrades or not to be applied to different apps

OK, thanks for the reply.


The idea is to build an app with a button that refreshes the power apps data flow.

Is this viable?

Hi @WebPortal ,


A new connector with a trigger (When dataflow completes) and an action (Refresh a dataflow was just release in December 2020).  See links below.

It's a game-changer and I'm really excited about it... well... I was really excited but I can't get it to work.  I only see environments created in Teams and none of my PowerApps env.   Sad!  😞




It is a premium feature, I believe...

Sorry, missed the posts. What I mean is if you add a button that runs the flow it will re-create the schema. Delete the button afterwards
