New Functionality In Microsoft Power Automate 2024 Wave 1: Use Flows with Connections from Users in Copilot Studio

Power AutomateThis post is part of the New Functionality In Microsoft Power Automate 2024 Wave 1 series in which I am taking a look at the new functionality introduced in Microsoft Power Automate 2024 Wave 1.

The 22nd of the new functionality in the Cloud Flows section is use flows with connections from users in Copilot Studio.

Customize copilots with flows as AI plugins with connections provided by users, instead of needing to be shared and managed by the flow owner. This feature makes it possible to use flows as actions in copilots with other users without needing to use your own connections when others run the flow.

Enabled for: Users, automatically
Public Preview: –
Early Access: –
General Availability:  May 21, 2024

Feature Details

Use flows with connections provided by users in Microsoft Copilot Studio, instead of only the connections embedded in the flow. Users of the copilot are prompted to enter their connections when running the flow is run as an action from a copilot. Makers can choose whether a flow uses connections provided by users and their connections embedded in the flow when it’s run from the run-only setting on the flow’s detail page.
