Exporting, Importing, and Distributing Flows

At some point, it may be necessary (or useful) to be able to make a backup copy of a flow for archival purposes or move it between environments. There could be several reasons for this, including:

  • Promotion from development or test environments to production
  • Sharing with other teams or organizations
  • Archival or backup
  • Publishing to the Power Automate community

Whatever your requirements, Power Automate gives you the ability to back up or export, import, and share your flows.

In this chapter, we're going to explore the following concepts:

  • Exporting a flow
  • Importing a flow
  • Distributing a flow

By the end of this chapter, you should be comfortable with the processes for exporting (or backing up), restoring (or importing), and sharing flows that others can then import.
