Unfail parent steps in Microsoft Flow

Following a comment on my blog ( 12/11/2018 - ) I would like to see an improvement in the erro handling options.


In my post I described how a try catch finally could be implemented, however this idea is also relavant to any other kind of nesting options.


I would like to be able to unfail an action if I handled the error within the flow. This could for exmple mean that if an action fails to update a SharePoint list item I might want to create a list item instead. Once this is successful I would be happy to unfail the initial update action so that it doesn't appear within the analytics as failed.

I guess you could simply use the terminate action with success as a result at the end of your error handling. Wouldn't it work?

This is not about the success or failure of the flow. You can handle the success of that with the try catch pattern mentioned. This will make all my flows finish successful. You will find however that within the analytics each failed stpe is still markedas failed even thoguh my flow successfully finished. This is sometimes a good idea but sometimes it is also useful to be happy with failed tasks when you know that you have fully handled the error.
