Error Handling in Power Automate Flows


Microsoft Power Automate provides rich and powerful tools, connectors, and logic to automate many common business processes within Dynamics 365 and the Dataverse as a whole.  With flow functionality slowly replacing legacy Dynamics 365 workflows, Power Platform administrators and customizers now more than ever have the ability to build automations up and across to other products and solutions using various data connectors.

When Power Automate flows run into trouble, they tend to fail and remain in a failed state until a user observes the failure, attempts to resolve the error, and resubmits the flow run.  This of course presents several challenges when it comes to error handling, one of which being the additional manual intervention needed to notice that a flow run has failed in the first place.  There are, however, a few different methods that can be leveraged to prevent or mitigate flow failures, including a method to alert someone if a flow run is experiencing trouble.

Microsoft Power Automate is part of the Microsoft Power Platform, a suite of business tools and services that provides low- or no-code methods of working with data, including data analytics and transformation, database tools, automation, and artificial intelligence.
