Microsoft Flow – Which flow ran on my item?

The previous posts in my series about troubleshooting flows in Microsoft are:

Recover from failure

Throws in flows

Try / Catch / Finally


Have you had the same problem I’ve had? A user complains about a flow failing and you have no way of finding the failing flow. You might even try to rerun your flow but which one to pick?

The solution is now here!

I’m starting with the workflow function. I’m adding this function ins a Compose step


This gives me the following output.

"id": "/subscriptions/b1b36c61-d929-4258-8ace-6d31523e9820/resourceGroups/6300CD2A7667407C9251F30D77A6B805-030125C0AE7B4BC88A8A63602F20AB6A/providers/Microsoft.Logic/workflows/141e89fb-af2d-47ac-be25-f9176e64e9a0",
"name": "141e89fb-af2d-47ac-be25-f9176e64e9a0",
"type": "Microsoft.Logic/workflows",
"location": "uksouth",
"tags": {
"flowDisplayName": "Button -> Condition",
"environmentName": "07aa1562-fea6-4583-8d76-9a8e67cbf298",
"environmentFlowSuspensionReason": "07aa1562:2Dfea6:2D4583:2D8d76:2D9a8e67cbf298-None"
"run": {
"id": "/subscriptions/b1b36c61-d929-4258-8ace-6d31523e9820/resourceGroups/6300CD2A7667407C9251F30D77A6B805-030125C0AE7B4BC88A8A63602F20AB6A/providers/Microsoft.Logic/workflows/141e89fb-af2d-47ac-be25-f9176e64e9a0/runs/08586722084717816659969428791CU12",
"name": "08586722084717816659969428791CU12",
"type": "Microsoft.Logic/workflows/runs"

Ok the above is just a bit of json but this is actually very helpful stuff. Before looking further at the above json I’m going to have a look at the url of my flow history. That matches the above run:

There are 3 guids that I need to find aso that I can build up the flow history url.

The first guid is my environmentName (07aa1562-fea6-4583-8d76-9a8e67cbf298), then I’ve got the flow name ( 141e89fb-af2d-47ac-be25-f9176e64e9a0) and finally the run (08586722084717816659969428791CU12).

Now all I need to do is update my triggering list item in SharePoint with the URL and I can find my flow history back!

The details steps can be found in part 2
