Provide Method to Archive and Restore Flows (and Apps)

Currently the only way to archive and restore a Flow is to export/import the Flow using the browser if you have owner permissions. There is no way to automate this archive process.


It would be nice as an admin to be able to cleanup our environment by archiving old or un-used Flows and PowerApps. We would need a way to export the Flow and then to restore the Flow from the archived file (whether it be a .zip or a .JSON file) programmatically.

Yes, you can archive and restore flows using PowerAutomate Flow.

I am am still researching the same for PowerApps.

I can archive a PowerApps to a MSAPP file using PowerAutomate flow.

I just cannot restore it.
