When updating a PowerApp, flow gets turn off

Hi community,

 

I have noticed lately that whenever I export PowerApps from one environment and import it to another environment, if there is Power Automate (flows) inside the app, when I do the import and update action, it turns the Flow off until I manually turn it back on.

 

Is there a way I can prevent the flows to be turned off when I update the PowerApps?

 

Thank you in advance!

Hi @lliu_western 

Any time you import a flow into another environment via a solution you will need to go to that new environment and re-establish connections. The only connector that doesn't need to be re-established would be the CDS (current environment) connector. This is the challenge with importing flows this time as there is no way to go in to re-establish the connections. I'm hoping that Microsoft will eventually fix this but for the time being I will usually put flows into a separate unmanaged solution or you can export individual flows via the Power Automate platform and then import them individually into the new environment. Hope this helps. Thanks!

Thanks @summitb . Months ago when I had to do the migration between environments for PowerApps, it wouldn't turn the Flow off automatically. 

I just noticed this change in recent month so I thought maybe Microsoft upgrades the platform and there still an option of prevents the flow to turn off automatically when updating.
