Add Flow Name (display name) to the workflow() context

workflow().name provides the Flow guid but there is nothing in the workflow() context that has the Flow Name at runtime. I might suggest something like workflow().displayname.


An example of how it could be useful might be a Flow designed to send an Email having the Flow Name as the subject of the Email.

Nintex offers this option, which is a HUGE time saver to troubleshoot a problem like when a workflow email is forwarded to the helpdesk but then they don't know where it's coming from.  Have the full display name of the workflow, the author or a link to the flow, it's a massive time saver.


I would ask to add the flow version as an attribute in case the flow has been upgraded or updated....


This solves the issue I was having

Is there a way to generate a link directly to the workflow run itself vs the flow name using those tags?

@testasdfasfsafa  ,


This is probably too late for you, but....


Here is string that builds a link to the run instance. I use it in every flow that sends an email so if users have problems, I can have them forward me the email and I can click on that link to jump directly into Power Automate and examine the problem run. To use this, copy&paste into either a Compose action's input parameter or an Initialize Variable or Set Variable action:


<a href="{workflow()['tags']['environmentName']}/flows/@{workflow()['name']}/runs/@{workflow()['run']['name']}">Open the flow results panel for this run, instance <i>@{workflow()['run']['name']}</i> flow (run timestamp: @{utcNow()}</a>


For bonus points, here is the one (with mods from yours truly) that Stephen provides in the blog post he references above:


<a href="{workflow()['tags']['environmentName']}/flows/@{workflow()['name']}/details">Open the flow control panel for the <i>@{workflow()['tags']['flowDisplayName']}</i> flow</a>


Credit goes to Pieter at for the run instance one:
