How to use Flow management - Update Flow

Hello,

 

I don't know how to use the following formula

 

Flow.UpdateFlow(DefaultEnv,glrFlow.Selected.name, properties, {name:text})

 

The problem is related to the last 2 arguments.


FYI : I want to propose a GUI to rename Flow. 

Thx in advance

Re: How to use Flow management - Update Flow

Hi @Jdriele ,

Could you please share a bit more about your scenario?

Do you want to rename a specific flow using Flow.UpdateFlow(...) formula?

 

Based on the needs that you mentioned, I have made a test on my side, if you want to update a flow (rename a flow) using Flow.UpdateFlow(...) formula within an PowerApps app, I afraid that there is no way to achieve your needs in PowerApps currently.

When you use the Flow.UpdateFlow(...) formula within a PowerApps app, there is no way to retrieve the flow definition parameter value for the definition argument under the properties argument (third argument).

 

As an alternative solution, please consider take a try with MS Flow to achieve your needs. I have made a test on my side, please consider take a try with the following workaround:

Please consider take a try with above alternative solution, then check if the issue is solved.
