How to send an answer to the previous flow ?

I would like to build a flow that receives some values, and return an answer ? 

I have used the HTTP request trigger as the entry point, with a JSON payload, and I can read values and process them.

But then I want to send back two values. I don't know how to specify what I want to send back. 

 

Any advice would be more than welcome 🙂

Hi!

Are you using 'Child Flows'? It is it's under Solutions tab, I think it is premium and you need CDS license also. Check this link and the video:

The old fashioned Nested Flows is also premium, but you do not need CDS. IT's the one I use. Great explanation here...

...and how to return an answer via 'Response' here:

Thanks for the fast answer ! 

 

I'm trying with nested flow, I found the first link you sent, but not the second one, that's the missing part for me 🙂 Great ! 🙂 I'm working on it now, thanks a lot for putting me in the right direction
