Data Retention by Flow

Hello,

 

What data does Microsoft log/store for each Flow instance, and how long is the data retained?  Is it possible to turn off data logging for a specific Flow or by account?  For example if a Flow is moving around sensitive data, we would not want it to be kept on the servers.

 

Thank you,

Chris

Hi @R3Chris,

 

Mostly the flow you have created would only keep the configuration you have specified.

There should be no actual data stored within Microsoft Flow.

Microsoft Flow uses connections to access data, verify for the trigger condition, then fire the Actions configured after the Trigger.

For the other parts regarding Microsoft Flow limits or configuration, please take a look at the article below:

Thanks, but is there any sort of official publication saying whether Microsoft does or does not store data, even for diagnostic purposes, such as what Zapier has here?

Hi @R3Chris,

 

I think you may have interests regarding the article below:

Further, as Microsoft Flow is offered as SaaS service, you may 

download the new white paper: Protecting Data and Privacy in the Cloud.

This isn't a question about DLP. I'm asking what Microsoft's data retention policy is regarding data that moves through the Flow service.  It doesn't appear that there is an answer, so I can't be sure what data is being stored and for how long.
