Is it good practice to create a new connection for every Flow or should you use existing connections?

This is just something I was wondering since I was having issues before with Flows taking a little too long to run and I heard that it might be due to the fact that I had multiple flows using the same connector. Is it good practice to create a new connection every time you create a Flow, or should you just use the existing ones that you created for older Flows? Thank you.

Hi @Mgodby ,

 

From my experience, even if multiple Flows use the same connection, it will not affect the trigger of Flow.

 

I create a lot of Flows for testing every day, and these flows all use the same connection, such as SharePoint Online and Office 365 outlook connection, which seems to have never seen a similar issue.

 

If you feel that multiple Flows use the same connection to affect the execution of Flow, you could consider adding a new connection directly when configuring a new Flow. There is no limit to the number of connections. You could create them as much as you like.
