Flow Connection Issues

Hello i'm facing three problems, which make it hard to develop Workflows.

#1: I connect Flows with PowerApps and every time i change the definition in Flow (with new parameter or delete old parameter) it doesn't update the definition in PowerApp, so a big refresh within PowerApp and all the open browsertabs is needed

#2: it seems that a PowerApp can just interact with Flows that the same User is Creator of (other Flows, that are shared for editing with that user cannot be loaded in the PowerApp)

#3: i had problems to add items to a SP list, that had a numeric column and a minimum value, within the flow i wanted to set the value (bigger than the minimum) but the generated JSON request for SharePoint had the wrong column name (just random characters), due to that SharePoint wasn't able to perform the insertion (after deleting the minimum value it worked)

 

Regards Daniel

Hi @ DPfeiffer,

 

 

For your first problem,do you want the definition in PowerApp to update when the definition in Flow (with new parameter or delete old parameter) is changed?

The big refresh that you mentioned is not supported in Microsoft Flow currently, I afraid that there is no way to achieve your needs in Microsoft Flow currently.

 

If you would like this feature to be added in Microsoft Flow, please submit an idea to Flow Ideas Forum:

For your third problem,would you please share a screenshot of the configuration of your flow?

 

I have made a test on my side to create a Number type column with a minimum value as below:

And I have created a flow to create item in the list as below:

The flow would run successfully as below:

Please take a try with my workaround and let me know if your problem could be solved.

Thanks for your reply,

the first two would make it easier to work together on a automated sharepoint site. I wil post it in the ideasForum as you mentioned.

Unfortunatly I couldn't reconstruct the third error, perhaps there was another error that lead to the wrong insertstatement. Because now it works i didn't changed the original flows and SP Lists in order do keep the working setup 😄

In a small test scenario it worked as you postet.

 

Regards Daniel
