Is there a way, we can trigger desktop flow via command line?
End objective is to check the feasibility with integrating power Automate with Jenkins/azure pipeline
You can trigger power automate via CMD
if you would like to add feature to the product feel free to open new idea and will be reviewed by product group.
Have a good day.
When you say, we can trigger power automate via CMD, can you please help me with the steps? How to do that?
Can you please provide on details on how to do this? Should we always rely on cloud to trigger the flows? There must be some way to trigger the flow on the same machine where power automate desktop is installed using the command line.
There are many posts asking the same but there doesn't look to be a way as of now to trigger or even schedule a desktop flow without the cloud flow.
I think @kierian wanted to type you "can't" instead of you "
can" trigger power automate via CMD.
Here you can upvote the idea for scheduling a desktop flow which also talks about command line and powershell.
I propose a (dirty 😀) solution in this thread:
In the Power Automate for desktop July release (will be released in the following days), we can run a desktop flow locally through a URL. We can create a custom URL containing the Flow name/Flow ID and the Flow's environment ID and trigger it through a browser or anywhere else. Stay tuned 🙂
In the meantime (waiting for the big July release 🚀), you always have these alternatives 😉
does it require a premium version?
Yes it does:
> Premium users that are signed into Power Automate for desktop can now trigger a desktop flow through its console run URL. With this new feature, users can run desktop flows outside the console and without opening it at all.
