Update PA and its impact on PVA

I have a topic in PVA that calls a PA flow and returns 6 variables.

I've declared all as global in PVA.

I've got another 10 topics, all using the global variables in different locations, which sums up to more than a hundred times.

I know that changing the PA flow might impact the usage in PVA and I'll have to declare all again, but I never expected that changing a minor thing which is not affecting PVA at all, will cause such a mess.

I now need to remove the 'Call for Action' from PVA main topic, which will break all other usages, recreate it and run through my entire bot to update all areas which will take me few hours to make sure the logic isn't broken.

Please tell me that I'm missing something and there's a better way to do that.

I feel like PVA is way off then being ready for use.

Hi @HaimOz ,

 

I think that the unique way is to delete, recreate, and rename all usages, unfortunately. But Microsoft is improving the PVA chatbot, if you send your feedback and your idea, maybe you can change this feature and insert your idea on the roadmap.

Submit your idea here: https://aka.ms/pva/community/ideas

 

@CleberM @ggupta @Diganta   if you know anything different, please fixed me.

Yes, this is no fun at all - and it rubbishes the idea that a citizen developer would ever bother with this.

IMO, Microsoft should be focussed on fixing these usability and stability affecting issues before worrying about higher order things on the roadmap
