Microsoft Fow how to get the Http Post URI

A couple of years ago a Microsoft Tech helped me to refine an approval Flow I had built and one of the steps in the Flow used a HTTP Post action.   I don't remember now how to get the URI in this step?   The URI is referring to an Excel file that the Flow is reading using Get Rows.    It seems that MS made some changes to MS Flow over the past year and previous functionality

@smushtaq  -  This appears that another flow is being called that has http trigger setup on it. Do you know which flow it is calling? If you edit that flow, it would have http trigger. You can edit the flow and click the following button to reveal the URI.

@PrasadAthalye,

Yes I do have another Flow connected to this one, it starts with the HTTP Post action and then runs an Apply to Each action to send out an email.  So same question applies to the 2nd Flow, if I want to recreate it, how do I get the URI?

For clarification, when I posted yesterday, the site wouldn't recognize my account and didn't give an option to sign in, I could only create a new account.  Today, it took me to my existing account.

@shahab - URL that you are looking for is generated once you save a flow with http trigger first time. URL is available within the flow, trigger action and you can access it as I have demonstrated below. 

 

If you want to recreate similar flow, Simply add HTTP Trigger and write your logic. Once you save it, URL will be automatically generated and then you can use it. Please note that its an open URL and anyone with URL access can invoke the flow which will be counted as flow run.

Hi Prasad,

Apologies for the late reply.  So I tried testing this out by creating a new Test flow with the HTTP trigger as the last step, however it didn't work.   The HTTP step asks you to provide the URL, it doesn't generate one.  I tried recreating both of my Flows in case I had the wrong one and the same applies for both, you need to provide the URL, it isn't generated on saving the Flow.

@PrasadAthalye any additional suggestions?

@shahab  - I am sorry as the details were not clear from earlier description.  

 

In Http Post Action,  URL is something that you need to provide depending upon the service that you are calling. You should have that URL already. If that URL is from Another Flow which has HTTP Trigger, you will simply copy from that flow and paste here. If that URL is something else like an REST End Point OR OData Service end point given by SharePoint, you will use that one.

 

Http Trigger Autogenerates URL because caller needs to use it to call. Http Action expects URL that one has to provide so that action can call it.
