Monitoring Flows

Is it possible to monitor all running Flows (run history) in a report or dashboard?  Something we can use without the need to open each Flow.

Hi @jont22 , no probelm but at least you have additional information now.

So in that case, no there is not a solution that shows all running Flows at any one time.

Sorry it's not a way for you to acheive your ask but i guess it is the correct answer.

@LauraGB has created a fantastic dashboard for tracking Flows with Power BI. Check out her Track Flows using Power BI blog post.

Hi @jont22 , thank you for your post.

If I were you I'd start by looking here: https://flowstudio.app

It's free although there are paid for aspects of it but you do get to see "Recent runs" and it's easier to view than the native Flow app.

 

Also, in PowerShell you have Get-FlowRun, "Gets flow run details for a specified flow."

https://powerapps.microsoft.com/de-de/blog/gdpr-admin-powershell-cmdlets/

 

Here is it's help doc as it may hold other answers for you:

Might be a bit basic, but have you tried looking at the powerplatform admin centre. It has a nice PowerBI dashboard showing flow runs etc.

https://admin.powerplatform.microsoft.com

Thank you all for the suggestions.

 

I would really only want to show any flows that are currently running.  Basically, pending approvals but for all users.  Not so much historical data.

All approvals are stored in a CDS Entity called "Approval". You can access it by going to make.powerapps.com > Entities > search for "Approval" entity and select "All" on the dropdown filter. You should be able to get all the details for that approval there.
