Dynamics 365, how to resolve Case using Microsoft Flow?

Hi,

 

What is the best way to resolve a Case, in Dynamics 365, using Microsoft Flow?

 

I tried:

  • update Case status directly, failed with error message 'In order to set state of incident to Resolved, use the CloseIncidentRequest message instead'
  • create Case Resolution record. Record is created, but Case is still active.

 

So the only way I can think, is update an extra flag field on Case, then trigger CRM workflow to resolve the Case.

But it looks very ugly?

 

Is there any better way? 

 

Thanks for any help.

 

Regards,

Zhenyu

Hi @wingzeroaa,

 

Thanks for feedback.

I have tried Dynamics 365 action Update a record, it seems that though the flow finished the run, the status of the case is still Active.

A workaround would be use Dynamics 365 Workflow to resolve the case.

I will help confirm it on my side and back to you later.

 

Best regards,

Mabel

Hi Mabel,

 

Thank you for reply

 

As I said,

this workaround is working:

Flow -> Update an extra flag field on Case, then trigger CRM workflow to resolve the Case.

 

But I am not sure, if there is a better way

Hi @wingzeroaa , @bharatkumar , 

 

We cannot "Resolve" a case directly from flow without the any side tweak (creating other fields etc) as there is a Resolution Field that is a required one when you Resolve a case. All you can do from Flow is close/ cancel a case. 

 

You can find many articles on resolving a case with tweaks like using plugins, creating custom fields to pass values etc. 

 

Hope this Helps!
