Logging a flow's actions' inputs and outputs for search-ability

(I have put this in General, because it got flagged is spam in another sub-forum, maybe it was because it was in the wrong one)

 

I have a flow which is has a very high throughput, 1000s of messages per day which updates our systems.

 

Occasionally, bad data comes through which passes all the validations rules, but the data is plain wrong so we need to try and track back to the message the initiated the update.

 

I know you can view the run history but that only shows when messages arrived and what the outcome was (Completed, Failed, Canceled [sic]) but with the high throughput, is just not feasible.

 

However, what I would like to know is if it was possible to "journal" all the actions that happened inside the flow, the part where you open the flow instance and it shows you the path the flow took, along with all the inputs/outputs. In essence, what I am after is the data behind this URL

 

https://emea.flow.microsoft.com/manage/environments/{envID}/flows/{flowID}/runs/{runID}

 

With this data, we could dump it into some sort of data storage and if someone reports a rogue update, we could search the data storage to find the actual message and then track back to original source

 

Thanks..

Have you tried looking at the CSV file you can export from the flow run?

Hi @BO55VXR 

 

I was looking for a solution for you, and it's already an idea submitted for Microsoft to solve.

I don't think that's possible, but @Rahber provided you with a potential workaround.

 

If I have answered your question, please mark your post as Solved.
