Shared connections

I just wanted to know, if there is a concept of shared connection in Flow, like a shared data source feature available in SSRS. I basically wanted to create few connections and leverage it across the teams, so that any one within the team could make use of those connections in any of the flows they are creating / modifying.

As far as what I understood, connections shared could be used by the team only within that flow. But just want to explore if there an option available or any workaround to achieve the same.

I couldn't see that anyone else had created the idea so I have added one around this:

Re: Shared connections

Hi @Jijoy,

 

I think your thought is correct, currently, the Shared connections could only be used by the team within the specific flow. In other words, the Shared connections could only be used within the team flows.

 

More details about the Team flows, please check the following article:

create a Team flow

 

If you want to use the Shared connections to create your custom flows, I think there is no way to achieve your needs in Microsoft Flow currently.

 

If you would like this feature to be added in Microsoft Flow, please submit an idea to Flow Ideas Forum:
