Sharing a Power Automate Cloud Flow with Run-only Users

Hi Community,


I am having trouble at the moment with the Power Automate Cloud Flow sharing with the 'Run-only Users' feature, 


My flow is manually triggered and this cloud flow is included in a solution.

At the moment, I have a DEV/TEST environment where I make all the changes for the flow in the DEV/TEST environment.

Once I have made all the changes from the flow, I will export the solution to the PROD environment and upgrade the DEV/TEST environment.


Once it is successfully upgraded. I share the flow with a user using the following feature:



However, this flow does not appear in the 'Shared with me' tab in the List of Flows (I read somewhere it says that you can only see the flow if you are an owner).


Therefore, I share the link to run the flow with the users so that they can rerun the flow whenever they want. The link looks as follow:

This has been working for a while, but then I realized that whenever you make changes and then export and import the solution back to PROD again, the link will change.


Does anyone have a good suggestion on how to work around this issue? The issue is causing me to have to re-share a new link every time I upgrade the solution in the PROD environment.

Input is much appreciated. Thank you.

If the flow is in a solution, I do not believe you will find it other places than in the solution itself. (and the default solution of course).

When you re-export the solution, you must use the "upgrade" option, this way the flow is only updating the changed items, and you won't get a new run link.
