Attach a common Flow to a SharePoint List/Library to trigger or create/update

 Hi Community Members,

 I would like to create a new Flow which is triggered on SharePoint item/document create/edit event. This flow will be a common flow for many SharePoint sites and I would like to programmaticaly  attach these flows to the required lists/libraries across many SharePoint sites.

Is this possible?

How do i go about creating a common flow to be used across multiple SharePoint sites? and can I use CSOM, Rest API, Powershell to attach the flow to the libraries/lists on those sites?

Hi @AzureSpDev-1 


It is not possible to attach a flow programmatically attach to a multiple lists. What you could do is create the main flow logic as child flow triggered by manual and set an input parameter depending on your requirement. Then individually create multiple flows for each lists trigger and call the child flow to pass the triggered body (input parameter).  This way your main logic of the flow will act like a common function.

Since HTTP is now a Premium connector, it will be great if Microsoft created a Flow to call other flows, or the possibility to use one Flow across multiple Libraries / Sites.


The idea has been already proposed, and needs sufficient number of Votes for it to be considered..
