Flow automatically 'turned off' after 90 days

Microsoft emails us stating that they notice certain flows aren;t used every day used and will disable them automaticlly after 90 days. Why? Do they not want us to actually use it? We have several flows that we use for periodic policy acceptance, and may lay dormant until the next time we use them. If we are paying fo the service, why is Microsoft disabling flows that are only used at certain times?

It's frustrating. There's a post about it over in the ideas forum https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Power-Automate-Ideas/Stop-turning-off-infrequently-used-Flows/id... you should add your support to.

I agree with the response provided by @trad 

I haven't tested this yet at scale but here is an idea.

  1. Create a Flow using a recurrence trigger set probably to daily
  2. Use either the Power Automate category, select either List My Flows or List Flows as Admin if you are an admin
  3. Loop through your Flows and check to see if a Flow is turned off
  4. If turned off, then turn it on

You could use the same concept using Get Flow or Get Flow as admin if you want to target specific Flows.

Note that, for some reason, when you are searching for the actions they don't appear when you search for Power Automate - search for Flow instead and select the Power Automate actions.

Give it a try...
