Hey @Jdriele 

 

You can only import Flow's exported as a .zip package. the JSON ones are for importing as Logic Apps. 

 

Hope this Helps!

Re: How to import JSON exported flow ?

You confirm that MS never think about UX...

Create a logic App is out of reach for 99% of flow creator. But the option is next to zip one with no help/alert...

For Admin, there are no way to export a flow as zip, only json.

For a user, natively, you have no versionning or restoration.

 

Nevertheless thx

A missing feature indeed!

 

Actually it can be imported. It is just not implemented.
I don't know how, but some dude called John Liu, figured it out.

But he provides it as a service you pay for. (along with a lot of other useful features missing in the default GUI)

Hey @MichelH 

 

Yes! So John Liu's solution is a way more advanced one and he has come with a better version of it named as Power Clarity to bring better governance on a whole to the PowerPlatform. For individuals, the package in extra contains the flow definitions and all that stuff and it can be exported as individual files and then use an external api to pack it all and then import it to the flow environment. Now that UI Flows have come this should be a cake walk. 

 

Hope this Helps!

Recently I found there is a Flow management connector

 

It has amongst others a 'create flow' and 'modify flow'.

 

This could be what you need.
