Using SharePoint JSON view formatting you can trigger a Flow using the executeFlow custom row action and then providing the ID of the Flow to be triggered, for example:

"elmType": "button",
"customRowAction": {
  "action": "executeFlow",
  "actionParams": "{\"id\": \"2d8001c0-31f4-48e5-90ab-1804fa33bb43\"}"
"txtContent": "Start a flow",

Is it possible to trigger a Logic App using a similar approach?


With JSON view formatting it's not possible to directly start a Logic App from a button action, based on the available attributes of the customRowAction property:


  • defaultClick: buttons with this action will do the same thing as clicking the list item in an uncustomized view. Below is an example of a button that, when clicked, simulates a click on the item, which results in opening the list item. Adding this example button to a document library simulates a click on the file or folder, which results in the file or folder being opened.
  • share: Clicking the button will open the sharing dialog. Below is an example of this type of button.
  • delete: Clicking the button will open the delete confirmation dialog.
  • editProps: Clicking the button will open the item properties page in edit mode.
  • openContextMenu: Clicking the button will open the item's default context menu.
  • setValue: Clicking the element will update the item with the field values provided.
  • executeFlow: Clicking the button will launch the specified Flow, specified by ID inside the actionParams attribute. For an example of this, see Create a button to launch a Flow. Below is an example of this type of button.

Microsoft do have documentation that allows you to call a Logic App from Power Automate. I've not read the documentation in details but it seems there is the potential to trigger a Flow that triggers a Logic App.


For my solution I used the setValue attribute of the customRowAction property to change a field on the item (e.g. "Start" = true). Then I check this field in my Logic App and only action the relevant items.
