Introduction

Microsoft Flow is designed to connect the different services in an easier way by creating automated tasks or workflows. To get started with Microsoft Flow, go through my previous article:

To connect the different services in Microsoft Flow, we should establish the connection to that appropriate service. And the connections can be managed from "My connections page". Below are the steps to manage the connections in Flow.

  4. View all available connections created for the current user in My Connections page.



  5. Click “Add a connection” button redirect us to “Available Connections” page,
