how to stop a flow run from another flow?

It's possible stop the run of a flow from another flow?

The disable Flow as Admin will keep new instances of the flow from starting, but won't do anything to currently running flows.  And Terminate assumes that you are stopping the current flow instance.  There is no provision for pointing it at something else.  I'm not aware of any way to programmatically stop a specific instance of a flow from a flow. I'm not sure its even possible using the PowerShell commands.  It can be done one flow at a time from the status page in Power Automate.

Hi @chiccodeb 

 

There is a disable flow action step but not sure how this affects when its running.

Also there is a terminate Flow action step where you can terminate the flow during the run.

my problem is another: the flow has more runs active and i have to stop only one specific run.

For this problem i suppose ther's no solution.

is there an update to this? what if someone runs a flow and then they want to cancel it? is there no  way to make a flow that can stop/ end currently running flows?

The maker can cancel an individual flow run from the details of the flow itself.  But I don't know any way to do this without using the User Interface.
