Issue - Cannot find Instant Flow in PowerApps

This issue was started last week. 

 

I'm building a Canvas App and was using instant flows triggered from the app buttons and it was working all correctly as intended. Last week I was trying to update one of the flows and trying to add an additional parameter to pass on from the App to the flow. As my previous experience, I deleted the flow from the app and was trying to add it back in, so the parameters would be refreshed. However, when I click the Flows button in the action, the panel shows no flow and suggested me to create one while I have probably 20 instant flows created before. 

 

Today, I'm trying again, still the same problem. Then I followed the suggestion and created a new flow. It worked. However this round I have discovered an even weirder problem. I can not find this newly created flow anywhere, except I can see it within PowerApps, but I cannot find and edit it in the Flow section. 

 

I have double-checked the environments I was in and I was in the same environment. 

 

In fact, I have also check a different tenant/environment, and it is exactly the same issue. 

 

Not sure if I have done anything wrong, but need help urgently!!!

I have found the newly created flow in the Default Solution. 

 

So I would assume the App was also looking for Flow within the Default Solution????

Sounds like the canvas app is in a solution...therefore will only see flows also in the solution.

Re: Issue - Cannot find Instant Flow in PowerApps

Hi @v-siky-msft , I have just tried and it is still not working.

Hi @chass , I have apps/flows both in or outside of solutions, but they all behave the same way, i.e. only looking for flow in "Default Solution".

 

As you can see in the attached screenshot, I cannot see any flows when I click Flows button under the Action.

Re: Issue - Cannot find Instant Flow in PowerApps

Hi @chass , I'm still having issues with this topic. The solution doesn't allow me to add instant flows (PowerApps triggered) from outside the solution and if I want to duplicate one flow and make adjustments on top, the only workable way to me is to create a new flow within the PowerApps and then slowly copy over the actions and make changes. Is there a better way to do it? Thanks in advance.
