Flow Management - Start Flow

I want to start another flow from a flow. There is an action "Flow Management - Start Flow." Unfortunately, this does not work for me, does anyone have an idea?

Re: Flow Management - Start Flow

HI @saalfsef,

 

Could you please share a bit more about the error message on your side?

 

I have made a test on my side and the flow works well. My flow's configuration as below:20.JPG

The flow works successfully as below:21.JPG

 

 

In addition, the "Start Flow" action of Flow management connector is used to enable the specific flow rather than excute the specific flow. In other words, when a flow is disabled, we could use "Start Flow" action to enable the flow.

 

If there is something error with your "Start Flow" action, please check if you are the Environemnt admin of your Microsoft Flow. It means that you should create a connection to Flow management connector with a account which has a Environment admin permission.

 

More details about the Flow management connector, please check the following article:

Best regards,

Kris

Re: Flow Management - Start Flow

Hi Kris, the "Start Flow" action in your screenshot is the same as the the Flow Management - Start Flow action you describe. This doesn't run the flow, it just enables it.

 

This post describes how you can invoke a Flow using the HTTP action - https://flow.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/call-flow-restapi/. However, it would be great if there was a simple action like "Start Flow" that you could use to, you know, start a flow.

Re: Flow Management - Start Flow

I am also perplexed. I thought "Start Flow" actually runs the Flow, intead of just enabling it. Misleading action name.
