Sticky / persistent variables across runs of a Recurrent Flow

 

I'm trying to create a Flow that runs on a regular schedule, testing for the health of a service. I was hoping to use a variable to pass the last status message to future iterations of the flow, but variables don't appear to persist.

 

The object of this exercise is to stop repeated notifications when the service is down, and only sending one when the service comes back up again.

 

Have I missed something or is that not possible with Flows?

Thanks for your feedback, I afraid that there is no way to achieve your needs in Microsoft Flow currently. You could consider take a try to submit an idea to Flow Ideas Forum:

Dang. Thanks Kris. Shall do on the suggestion, and I'll get to work on the kludge I've been pondering as my Plan B.
