PowerAutomate flow is not shown in PowerApps in case of Solutions with Parent/Child flow

I developed Parent/Child flow in "Solutions", and they are working well in each test running.

But this parent flow is not shown in PowerApps when I selected button and menu "Action > PowerAutomate" in PowerApps. Other PowerApps trigger flows are shown in the list thru PowerApps.

 

Do I need any setting for Solution (Parent/Child flow) to be shown in PowerApps menu??

My understanding is that the child flows can't be created outside a solution and also the parent needs to be in a solution.

 

But the Flows created from a power apps button / CDS Model Driven app form are currently can't be included in a solution.

 

So the work around i suggest is to make the parent to be triggered on a specific field update? Are you using CDS or SharePoint?

 

Parent - Child in a solution, then your flow from power apps will be used to update a field that triggers the Parent Flow.

Yes, your solution is working well. Thank you so much.

I set trigger with SharePoint;

PowerApps Trigger Flow↓↓

Parent Flow ↓↓

But just wondering, if this method is using, no need to adopt Parent/Child flow... "Create item in Sharepoint" will be parent flow, then Child flow will be run.

The purpose of separation for Parent/Child flow is to control access by users, hence finally meet the purpose, but "Run a Child Flow" action is not indispensable...

What do you think?? @Mira_Ghaly
