trigger a business process flow from power automate

Hi Folks


I'm working on a Power Automate flow for CRM Dynamics. I want to know - is it possible to trigger a business process flow from the Power Automate and if so how?


Currently the Business Process Flow is triggered manually by a user qualifying a lead.

Yes, you can call the Business Process Flow via Rest API in Power Automate - Work with business process flows using code (Developer Guide for Dynamics 365 Customer Engagement) |....

If you could provide an expanded screenshot of your Flow and steps, your Flow run history, and of any detailed error messages you're receiving we could likely better assist you. Also, for the best results, you may want to review How to write a good forum post.

HI Brad

Thanks for the time you took to respond.

I'm not getting any errors, nor do I have problems with my flow at this stage because quite frankly, my problem is that I didn't know where to start to call up the Business Process Flow I wanted and subsequently, how do I trigger it? so i have no errors, just a list of leads which i would like to qualify.

My main problem is I'm not a developer nor do I know coding. I think I'm using the wrong terminology to find what I'm looking for and additionally any information i am finding I'm not sure how it articulates into the scenario I'm looking at.

If you have any other links you could provide a lost soul on the basics of this (apart from the one you have already provided and which I am looking at) I'd appreciate it.

I mean, I don't even know what step I would add after I find the lead I want to qualify!



Edit: I've also noticed that a lot of the information I'm reading states "trigger workflow from Business Process Flow" but never the other way around... which is why I wonder whether what I want to do is actually possible. I have not seen one article that says "trigger a business process flow from a workflow". So I'm wondering if I'm missing some information or a concept that will make all this make more sense.
