Unable to add Instant Flow to Solution

Hi

I have created a flow of type "Instant". When I tried to create a solution and add existing instant flow it doesn't appear in the "outside solution" tab. I'm able to see flows created using other types(Scheduled, Automated).

 

Could someone suggest how to add Instant Flow to a solution?

Hi

 

My understanding is that instant flows are currently not available in solutions.

 

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-gb/powerapps/maker/common-data-service/solutions-overview#known-limita...

 

Hope this helps

Hello,

 

I am running into the same issue. I reviewed the known limitations and I assume by "button triggered flow", they mean instant flows. That is a little confusing because I interpreted that as PowerApp buttons. 

I know we're a year later, just for anyone coming back here, I've successfully added an instant flow to a solution

Could you please provide the details on how you added existing instant flows to the solution?

you can't add existing instant flows to the solution. You have to set some other kind of trigger, and then you can.

It seems like this now works with the instant PowerApps V2 trigger, but not the original version.

 

i.e. Flows I created with the V2 trigger show up in the Add Cloud Flow list for a solution, but Flows with the original PowerApps trigger do not.

 

I have now been able to successfully add a PowerApps V2 Instant triggered Flow to a solution and confirm that it works as expected.

Was notified that this thread still had some activity. My workaround thus far has been to create the flow using an accepted trigger such as a scheduled trigger and then adding it to my solution. Then, once it's added, change the trigger to manual. It seems to work fine and I've used this workaround for numerous flows.

 

However, I'll definitely keep an eye out for @MarrinerDev's observation as that would be much easier.

Looks like adding while in the solution also works, and so does if you create it in the App itself.

seem to be still a open topic in backlog list to fix? Tried to...

1. adding an existing instant flow to a new solution = does not work, flow is not listed 

2. changing an existing instant flow (delete existing instant trigger and replace with an "PowerApps V2 trigger" = does not work, flow is not listed 

3. creating a new instant flow via "add" inside a solution = does work!

4. "ZIP Export" of an a instant flow is only available via make.powerautomate.com but not via make.powerapps.com

I have come up with the same problem....

Reading all your answers on this topic I can now share my experience

There was only 1 way I managed to add an existing instant cloud flow with PowerApps trigger to a solution.

I changed the trigger to V2
