How do we run MS Flow from PowerApps that was not created via PowerApps?

Is there a way to run an MS flow (Named X) that we've created separate of our PowerApps?

I think, one way of doing it would be to create another Flow (B) that would then run X, but is there an easier way? For examole, there is an MS Flow connecter in PowerApps, but I could not figure out if it can be used to run external Flows.

 

Any suggestions are really appreciated!

Hi @DenisMolodtsov,

 

To trigger a Flow directly from within your app the Flow trigger has to be the PowerApps Connector trigger. 

You can add that trigger to Flows made seperate from the app. In adding Flows to PowerApp you can only select Flows that use that specific trigger.

@Rebetcha, Excellent! That will work for us. So we can remove whatever trigger we had and replace it with the PowerApps trigger. 

Yes, you can. The only drawback is that before you can do that you have to remove all the references to the trigger in other places in your Flow. As long as output of the trigger is used elsewhere in the Flow the option to delete the trigger is grayed out.
