Copy Power Automate Flows from one environment to another

By: Murali in Office365 Tutorials on 2023-07-27  

You can copy Power Automate flows from one environment to another environment using the "Export" and "Import" features. This allows you to move flows and their associated components, such as connectors, triggers, actions, and settings, from one environment (e.g., development) to another (e.g., production) without recreating them manually.

Here's how you can copy a flow from one environment to another:

  1. Export the Flow:

    • Open the Power Automate web portal (https://flow.microsoft.com) and navigate to the environment where the flow you want to copy is located.
    • Go to the "My flows" section and locate the flow you want to copy.
    • Click on the ellipsis (three dots) next to the flow's name and select "Export" from the dropdown menu.
    • Choose the "Package (.zip)" option to create a .zip file containing the flow definition and its associated components.
  2. Import the Flow:

    • Navigate to the target environment (e.g., the production environment) where you want to import the flow.
    • In the Power Automate web portal, go to the "Solutions" section for the target environment.
    • Click on the "+ New" button to create a new solution or select an existing solution where you want to import the flow.
    • In the solution, click on the "Import" button and choose the .zip file exported from the source environment.
    • Follow the import wizard to import the flow and its components into the target environment.

During the import process, you may be required to map connectors and settings between the source and target environments. Ensure that all connectors used in the flow are available in the target environment, and update any necessary configuration settings.

Please note that the ability to export and import flows may depend on your Power Automate subscription plan and the administrator's permissions in the target environment. Additionally, you should review and test the imported flow in the target environment to ensure that it functions as expected.

Keep in mind that certain actions in flows might be environment-specific, and you might need to update these actions or connectors to match the new environment's requirements. Also, consider updating any references to environment-specific resources, such as SharePoint sites or Dataverse environments, to reflect the target environment's configuration.
