Re: Return value from Flow

Hi!

As @AlanPs1 explains, the way to trigger a "When a HTTP is received" nested flow is by means of an HTTP action block on the parent flow.

Please also note you can send a response from the nested flow to the parent flow and continue xecuting the parent one, by means of a Response action block. Actually, it's the one I usually add.

 

The technique to invoke the nested flow is documented here, please note the post is from 2017 and some screenshots do not match with the current ones available:

https://flow.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/build-nested-flows/

 

You will find tons of details about 'When a HTTP is received' and 'Response' in this official link:

Hi @neeraj523 

 

There is, depending on your method of course.

 

Let's say you were using an HTTP connector within 1 Flow to Post to "When a HTTP request is received" in another Flow.

 

Flow 1:

You can pass any data over to Flow 2. the one with action "When a HTTP request is received".

 

You can then parse the JSON or work with the data that has been received.

 

If you find my posts helpful, please mark with thumbs up

Any questions, just ask.

 

Thanks, Alan
