Improved Flow checker and remediation steps

Note

These release notes describe functionality that may not have been released yet. To see when this functionality is planned to release, please review What's new and planned for Microsoft Flow. Delivery timelines and projected functionality may change or may not ship (see Microsoft policy).

In October 2018, Microsoft Flow released features like the Flow checker and rich, contextual remediation actions to help users fix common errors and build reliable flows. By running the checker, makers can answer questions such as:

  • What areas of my implementation pose a performance or reliability risk?
  • Am I using the 200-plus connectors appropriately?
  • Have I made any errors in the Flow expressions that I’ve entered?

Makers can access an actionable scorecard that lists top issues. For each issue identified, the scorecard points to specific occurrences within the flow experience where improvements may be required. Most importantly, makers can discover how to implement these improvements by following detailed guidance.

Improved Flow checker

We have continued to invest in the intelligence of the advisor and added even more use cases to help users build reliable and robust flows. These improvements have come from learnings based on the AI capabilities in the platform. With hundreds of additional rules, and deeper static analysis, makers can get feedback on all the risks they may encounter before publishing their flows.
