Renamed Flow referred to by it's original name

It seems a renamed Flow can be referred to by it's original name in some (or all?) Connectors.

To test this...

  • Create a Flow, add an object (e.g. a trigger) with a data connection & save it as Flow1.
  • Rename Flow1 to Flow2.
  • Go to Data --> Connections
  • Click on the Connection used in the trigger object.
  • Click on "Flows using this connection".

Note the Connection refers to Flow1, the original name, not the current name.

Does this imply that finding Flows using a Connection by name is not always possible? (tested using a Survey123 Connector).

Re: Renamed Flow referred to by it's original name

Hi @cymorg1,

 

Yes, the Flow names in Connection always are the original names, so it is impossible to search a Flow according to its name in Using a connection when there have many Flows with the same actions. As a workaround, you can search the Flow in the My flows panel:Annotation 2019-12-05 094541.png
