Replace Connections in Flow with Connection References

Flows created inside a solution use connection references. 

When a flow is developed outside of a solution, it uses connections. There is no way to replace these with connection references, even after adding it to a solution.


If a flow is copied inside of a solution, the resulting flow is outside of the solution and must be manually readded, meaning it also no longer uses connection references and cannot be fixed.


Please add ability to replace connections in a flow with connection references.

I have found a way to replace connections with connection references.  You can simply export the solution as unmanaged and reimport.  This, and a few other power automate tips in a blog post you can find at:


This also covers how to distinguish the lists of connection references when they all show the same display name, etc.
