When a Record is Selected - Not available to run when created inside of a Solution

Working on a very simple Power Automate;

When a record is selected

Do a thing (Update that record)


However, I am running into some... unexpected? behaviour based on the below documentation;

TL:DR - It uses 'When a Record is Selected' as the example on the screenshots, and the FAQ states;

  • How do I move my flows between environments?

    Just like classic workflows, you can create flows in solutions to support the full application lifecycle for processes.


However! This does not seem to be the case, in the instance where you trigger a workflow with the trigger 'When a Record is selected'



(First off, now shows as 'Dataverse Legacy' connector, with no trigger on the non-legacy Dataverse connector which could match the functionality)


As such, I have tried the following;

1) Create the 'When a Record is Selected' Power Automate within the solution as we want to export to (x) customers

Result: - Flow was not available via 'Flow' menus on lists or within the entity the flow triggers for.


2) Create the 'When a Record is Selected' Power Automate within 'My Flows'

Result - Flow is available on model driven app menus, however, we can't easily deploy it.


3) Create the whole thing as an on-demand workflow and ignore Power Automate

Result - Well, this one works... So I'll probably end up using it but...


When are we going to get feature parity between the Legacy and non-legacy connectors? Has anyone else has this same issue? Any other options other than the fallback of Dynamics Processes?
