I have a very quick and short question.

I am developing a flow, and I need to run that flow by clicking on the "Test" button available on the flow to test whether my flow is working correct or not, for testing and debugging perspectives.

enter image description here

So does that test run also count for the Flow run count for the month?

I have a free plan, so I need to ensure whether I am not running out of free quota.

    If test runs could circumvent the billing process, then everyone would just use "test" runs for all their flows. – Derek Gusoff Sep 27 '19 at 13:27
  • hahahah. I agree.. but it means that I have to pay to test also.. – Aakash Maurya Sep 27 '19 at 13:29

Mentioned in the article:https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/flow/billing-questions

"Whenever a flow is triggered, whether by an automatic trigger or by manually starting it, this is considered a run."

So I think test run also counts as a run.

Test run is actually a run in MS Flow. Test is just a user-friendly button given in MS flow to trigger the flow as soon as you edit and save it.

As per my understanding (Correct me if I am wrong), Test Runs will be counted in Flow run count.

I have tested the scenario by running manual, automatic and test runs on flow.

So, test runs will be shown in Run History as well as Analytics of Flow.

As per official documentation by Microsoft (What counts as a run?), definition of a Run is:

Whenever a flow is triggered, whether by an automatic trigger or by manually starting it, this is considered a run. Checks for new data don't count as runs.
