PowerApps integration - Remove/Rename parameters

When you use PowerApps to trigger a flow, once you select "Ask in PowerApps" in an action, it creates a parameter.  In the "Run" function in PowerApps, you then have to specify the values of those parameters.

 

Trouble is, when you're refactoring both the Flow and the PowerApp, there's no way to either rename or remove the parameters.  For instance, if you delete an action that previously used a "As in PowerApps" value (which creates a parameter), the parameter still exists!

 

Could we place have a way of maintaining the list of parameters?

 

This has been posted as a bug previously by @Thomashttps://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/I-Found-A-Bug/Ask-in-Powerapp-Remove-unneeded-parameter/m-p/6513...

 

Also, it has been posted as an idea to in PowerApps Ideas by @JanSomers91.  Please also vote for that idea if you vote for this idea!

 

Thanks!

 

Status: Planned

We plan on letting you configure parameters for PowerApps flows just like you can for Flow mobile buttons.

Great hack! Thanks for sharing.

Another approach is to pass multiple parameters as one big JSON string, paired with a parse JSON step.  That way, you end up just needing to update the expected JSON schema in the Parse JSON step.

This is still an issue. Waste of time to have to remove/recreate just to get rid of unwanted parameters.

Just to let everyone know, you can download the flow, unzip the package, remove parameters from the JSON file, rezip, and then reimport.


Regardless this should be possible to do through the UI.

What an absolute nightmare it is to try and do anything with this... I wish I had known before I began.

Save a Flow as new Flow (Save as). The unwanted variable will be removed in the new flow. Delete the original one and rename the new flow the original name. If you have used this flow in powerapps, you need to remove it and the new flow
