Update flow action for solution-aware flow

Hi,

 

Is it possible to use the Update Flow action to update a flow inside a solution? The only flows I am seeing in the dropdown are flows that are outside of solutions.

 

EDIT: And on a related note, the Create Flow action can only create flows outside of solutions no?

 

Thanks

Ok I think I figured it out.

 

In the Create Flow and Update Flow actions, only your non-solution flows show up in the dropdowns. However, by using a Get Flow as Admin action, I can see my solution flows, and this action outputs my desired flow's Name and Display Name. Adding the Update Flow after the Get Flow as Admin and plugging in the Name and Display Name seems to work!

 

Looking at the run results, in the inputs of the Update Flow action, I can see the Flow (an id) and Flow Display Name that were necessary to reference my solution-aware flow. Presumably, if the id and name don't change, I don't need the Get Flow as Admin any more.
