Cancelling a flow

Hi

I am a person who looks after flows (NB I am not a Flow Administrator as that needs Azure Global Admin rights which I am never going to get !).  Occasionally Flows get stuck and need to be cancelled or a flow has been submitted in error and the user wants the flow to be cancelled so they can submit a new flow (by PowerApps).  The Flows typically are Approval Flows.

 

IS there a way of cancelling Flows ?

 

Thanks

 

Nigel

Re: Cancelling a flow

Hi @NigelP ,

It seems you want to cancel the approval flow.

When the approval flow is in pending, you can  go to the Run History.

Then click the Cancel button to cancel the flow.

Re: Cancelling a flow

Should be noted that Cancelling from the Flow History does not remove the Approval tasks that people may have.  To remove the Approval tasks you need to Cancel from the Approval/Sent page. These flows must be using the  newer V2 Approvals that are cancelable and must be cancelled by the account that submitted them.
