VSTS using PAT for connections



as I have several VSTS Accounts that use different credentials from different Azure ADs, wouldn't it be good to have the options to use Personal Access Tokens for the connections in flow?


At the moment building a flow with VSTS items is nearly impossible, as the flow does not really support handling different Azure AD accounts from different tenants. And it becomes even more worse if these credentials are MFA enabled or use onprem ADFS for authentication. Flows will then work only for the lifetime of the token, so round about one hour ...


Any Idea on this?

Re: VSTS using PAT for connections

Hi @ someoneelse,


The options to use Personal Access Tokens for the connections of Visual Studio Team Services is not supported in Microsoft flow currently, If you would like this feature to be added in Microsoft Flow, please submit an idea to Flow Ideas Forum:


How would you handle different Azure AD accounts from different tenants?You could refer to link below to configurable token lifetimes in Azure Active Directory
