Pass Text Input Values from PowerApps to Flow

Hi All - 

 

I'm trying to determine the best way to pass the values from 10 or more text inputs in a Power App to a Flow.  There's no data source in the power app so I'm not using a Form of any kind, I'm just using text inputs.  I've seen the examples where others attach a Flow to a button and use the MyFlow.Run command but I don't see how I would pass all the values from my app to the flow.  Is there some collection of all my text inputs I'm not aware of that I can pass as a parameter or do I have to build a collection on the power app side to pass through to have my flow see all the separate values?  Thanks for any help you can provide.

Re: Pass Text Input Values from PowerApps to Flow

Thx for the help Reza.  The post seems helpful but it's not clear at all as to how I pass or access the JSON once I've set it in the power app.  The author early on writes...

I’m starting by creating a single input in my Flow. My input is called Compose_inputs, but you could call it anything you like.

 There's nothing else in the post to indicate what Compose_inputs is, or where it's set, or where it comes from.  It's very confusing.  When testing the flow I'm not prompted for any type of input so I'm still not sure how I'm supposed get the JSON I've now created in my power app inside the flow.

Re: Pass Text Input Values from PowerApps to Flow

I ended up working through the issues I was having.  Inputs need to be a lot more clearly defined in Power Automate, it's not intuitive at all, and I still don't understand how you would ever remove inputs. 

 

Thx again for your help @RezaDorrani.
