I followed the steps to enabled flow in CRM, and have built a flow for an entity. I chose the flow to start when a record is selected via CDS.
However, I do not the see the Run flow options in the Flow menu in CRM. Any thoughts?
Hi @Anonymous and @Rebetcha
Did you manage to resolve this issue?
We are experiencing the same thing in our environment (D365 Online). If we create a Flow within a CDS solution then we do not see it available to run in the application. However, if we create from within Dynamics by clicking the "Create a flow" option in the Flow menu then it does display (but can then not be included in the solution for deployment).
Yep. We had done the same approach as you mentioned.
Any idea to better manage the FLOW CDS environments? it gets really confusing as there are two. and only one will enable running flow within CRM.
Hi @LeeHarris ,
No, this issue is not resolved. It is simply something that is still on the roadmap. I also ran into a similar issue this week with a Flow launched from a PowerApps canvas app. It is basically the same issue: if you initiate the creation of the Flow from within the app designer the Flow will be outside the solution the app is in, but will work. If you create a Flow within a solution you will not be able to incorporate it in your app.
I found that this is because the team is still working on the solution enablement for Flows. Currently Flows that need to be triggered from withing applications (Dynamics 365 CE, Model Driven PowerApp, Canvas App) only work if they are not part of a solution.
I have no idea when this will be solved, but I know they are actively working on expanding the solution awareness of Canvas Apps and Flows. I would not be surprised if this will become available somewhere in the next couple of months.
He @joshbrownwsna ,
I saw this blog today: https://flow.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/october-updates-for-microsoft-flow/
It mentions that you can now trigger Flows that are part of a solution from a Canvas App. That was not possible before.
It is not mentioning Flows triggered from within a Model Driven App though.
Hopefully they will add that soon.
