FAQ for regions in Microsoft Flow

This document provides a list of frequently asked questions about Microsoft Flow.

How do I find out where my flow is deployed?

Your flow is deployed in the region that hosts the environment. For example, if your environment is created in the Europe region, your flow is deployed in Europe data centers.

Administrators can identify the region if they sign in to the Microsoft Flow admin center. The Environments tab lists all existing environments and their regions.

What features are specific to a given region?

Environments can be created in different regions and are bound to that geographic location. When you create a flow in an environment, that flow is deployed in data centers in that geographic location. This applies to any items you create in that environment, including the common data model, flows, connections, gateways, apps, and custom connectors.

For optimal performance, create your environment in the region that's closest to your users. For example, if your users are in Europe, create your environments in the Europe region. If your users are in the United States, create your environments in the United States region.
