Based on Call Child Flows, there must be an action called "Run a Child Flow" in MS flow, but I cannot find it, Does anyone know why?Does it need a CDS license?

Is there any other way to call a flow and wait for its response in MS flow?


Just like the article you provide, you need to follow the steps then you can have a the "Run a Child Flow". First You need to navigate to the solution on your left hand. first create a new solution(Or goes to an existing one). Then create the child Flow first. After that, create the Parent Flow in the solution, then you will find the Run a child flow action. And you can find the child flow you created before.

enter image description here

You possibly have done it through clicking on My flows rather than doing it in the Solution tab, (and it seems it does not need CDS license??).

"For example, you may have multiple flows that are part of a project you are working on. While working on, or managing these flows, you don’t want to have to scroll and search for these flows when you want to access them.

Solutions address deployment needs by allowing you to export and import a set of flows (and apps). In addition, you can organize these flows within a single ‘container’ which simplifies navigating and managing these flows."

I suggest reading the rest of this Microsoft Walkthroughs.

  • Thank you so much, I was missing the solution part, I was doing it in the "My flows" rather than the Solution, much appreciated. – Mohsen Sichani Aug 11 at 18:58
