How to cancel a power automate flow not to use the terminate action within the flow itself ?

 

Hi to all,

I would like to know if there is a way to cancel a flow only with the information you get from the workflow() functions. With the workflow() function I can get a lot of information of the actual running flow, e.g. the flow id. If I store the information e.g to a sharepoint list, is there a way to get the information from the sharepoint list with another flow and use the flow-id to cancel the flow ?

Many thanks for your help and greetings from Bremen (Germany)

Hi @MartinBeering ,

 

I came across this which uses APIs wrapped into a custom connector.  Admittedly, I have not tried this but don't see why it shouldn't work. 

 

In regards to standard connectors, there is an idea here if you want to upvote.
