How to see where flow is used in my app (screen/button)?

Hi,

 

I have added a flow to an app which I have created some time ago.

But I don't know where exactly I have used it (screen/button).

Is there a way to retrieve this information?

Thanks!

Kr

Re: How to see where flow is used in my app (screen/button)?

Hi @ThomasVDS ,

Do you want to known where you flow connection is used in your app?

 

Currently, there is no easy way to achieve your needs in PowerApps. I agree with @RezaDorrani 's thought almost, I think the PowerApps Reviewer Tool could achieve your needs.

 

On your side, you could consider save your PowerApps app into a local file (.msapp), then run the PowerApps Reviewer Tool to open the local msapp file. After that, the properties of your app would show up as below:6.JPG

Then you could do a search based on your flow's name, then you could find where the flow connection is used.

I don't think there is an easy way to do this.  But, If you go to the Action menu and select Flows you can see any Flows that are associated with the PowerApp.  If you remove them your PowerApps error checker will tell you what button the Flow run command is on.  Then you can re-associate the Flow and should be OK.

Hi @ThomasVDS 

 

There is a PowerApps review tool (not officially supported) 

 

https://github.com/microsoft/powerapps-tools/blob/master/Tools/Apps/Microsoft.PowerApps.ThemeEditor/...

 

In this tool you can add your PowerApps exported file and it will walkyou through all formulas used

In this you can search on Flow function call name and you can see where it is used

@Pstork1Thanks for your suggestion, this works, but you need to reconnect your flow after deletion.

@RezaDorrani @v-xida-msft Thank you, when I want to search for my flow, the tool will tell in which screen it is used, but not directly which button.

 

But anyway, I have found my flow back! 🙂
