Renaming Power Automate Connections

Hello, I have seen you have solved the renaming issue regarding connections for power apps in the app itself. But for Power Automation we still have not the ability to rename our connections to differentiate them from each other. I like to rename the  Power Automate Desktop connection to choice from a different PC. That seems not to be possible (they are all named 'Desktop Flows'). Please help out.

Hi @Jouden 

 

There is a work around for this. 

 

Go to PowerApps.com then on the left hand side click Data > Tables

 

Then on the right hand corner select All and search for ConnectionReference

Click > Table > Connection Reference > Data

Here you can see all of your connection references created for that environment.

 

To edit the connection reference Display name you need to login to your 

 

https://yourdomain.crm11.dynamics.com

 

For the above url you need to click the settings button from the PowerApps.com menu right hand side. 

 

Once the new page is loaded then click the advanced settings menu and look for connection references.

 

Click Results. See below

It will display all the records. Click the connection reference record and edit the name. This won't break your existing connections.

 

Thanks

Thank you very much for your solution! I have found the answer. 

 

It can also be foud rather quickly if you go to the PowerApps.com menu and than choice settings. And than choice "Advancend Settings" and than choice for advancend search you can go straight away to the 'connection references' and than rename them.

But i have found the answer for sure. Thanks again and very much appreciated.
