Child Flow to set variables initiated in parent flow?

Hi, 

Any one know if I could set variable values which is initiated in parent flow in its child flow? 

I don't see the possible collection, but new to child flow...did I miss something?

I tried to call the Variables in the JSON schema, but, I don't think it's working?

And I could get the value alright in child flow, how can I update this value and write it back to parent flow? 

 

many thanks in advance

Hi @VswaldB 

 

Configure the child flow as when a HTTP request is received or  a manual trigger.

Add the Response action step to return the values back to Parent flow.  Set the returned value/property under the Body.
