Use Flow Management Create Flow to copy a Flow to a different environment

We are using standard SD lifecycle environments where the developers create their flows in dev and then they get promoted to higher environments. We have locked down the export/import feature to prevent users from exporting a flow and importing it into a private tenant and getting at firm data. My steps are as follows:


1) Get Flow as Admin

2) Create Flow (using output from above)


However, the output of Get Flow does not match the input to Create Flow. I managed to find a working simple example (found here) but it come nowhere close to the actual documentation found here. What am I missing? Or is there a better option?

thanks Deepak! i'm one step closer. i was able to create the flow in the other environment successfully using Get Flow instead of Get Flow as Admin. however, the trigger is broken. that particular flow was using an azure devops connection. how do i make sure to copy the connection properties to the new flow too?
