Logic Apps

Logic Apps allow developers to design workflows that articulate intent via a trigger and series of steps, each invoking an App Service API app whilst securely taking care of authentication and best practices like durable execution.
If you have any feedback or ideas on Azure Logic Apps we’d love to hear it.

How can we improve Microsoft Azure Logic Apps?

  1. Limit the number of concurrent logic app instances

    Nice to see that the "singleton" feature has been introduced!
    Why not taking it one level further and make the number of allowed concurrent instances configurable?
    In this way, we can easily "throttle" the logic apps by configuration in case the backend system cannot handle a high load.

        For load balancing or for failover of Logic Apps with request endpoints we recommend using API Management and making the Logic App an API operation. API Management has first class integration with Logic Apps to make it really easy to add a Logic App as a new API operation and API-M has built-in failover capabilities along with custom policies.

      • Suspend and Resume of the Workflow run.

        Same as the operation Cancel an work flow run(which is avialble today with Rest API or on Portal ), it would be really great and useful if we can suspend and Unsuspend/Resume a work flow run.

        • set the degree of parallelism in both the for-each and splitOn

          allow the degree of parallelism to be set in for-each loop and the splitOn option of a trigger.

          • Aggregate a list of messages into a single message

            Some connectors return a list of elements, but for some use cases it would be useful to group all elements in a single message.

            Example scenario (basic version):
            - Twitter Connector queries for 10 most recent tweets about a subject
            - These 10 tweets are grouped in a single message
            - The SMTP or Office365 Connector sends a single email with these 10 tweets

            An improved version of this scenario would be:
            - Every hour, Twitter Connector queries for 10 most recent tweets about a subject
            - At the end of the day, all tweets for the last 24 hours…

            • Provide ability to modify a webhook subscription

              https://flow.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/customapi-webhooks/ indicates that Flow will delete a webhook everytime you update the trigger within the Flow.

              For a variety of business reasons it is desirable to modify the webhook trigger subscription instead of delete it and add anew.

              The MSFT API guidelines [https://github.com/Microsoft/api-guidelines/blob/master/Guidelines.md#147-managing-subscriptions-programmatically] @ 14.7.2 indicate service may support updating webhook subscriptions. Our service has done so (out of necessity), however Flow doesn't currently have a way to use it.

              • Add exponential back off and delta to retry policies

                I'd like the retry policies (https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/azure/mt643939.aspx) to include support for Exponential backoff similar to what Polly (https://github.com/App-vNext/Polly) provides.

                I've posted a SO question w/reason why this would be useful (http://stackoverflow.com/questions/37493871/does-logic-apps-support-exponential-back-off-with-random-delta).

                • Support for HTTP Accept-* headers

                  HTTP Accept-* headers (such as Accept-Encoding) get dropped in Logic Apps.
                  Those headers seemt ot be often required and this prevents the usage of Logic Apps for many purposes if would otherwise nicely fit.

                  • Native Redis Cache support

                    I'd like to see native support for Redis Cache in workflow language or in a connector. Native support would be ideal. Looking for ways to eliminate intensive lookups during dynamic routing scenarios.

                    • Expose loops iteration number

                      During any sort of loop (spliton, foreach, until, etc) it would be great to be able to get the iteration number for the loop.

                            A big part of data flowing through the logic app is with JSON. I want to run complex expressions on array or collections that may be returned by a previous action. FilterArray is a bit too simplistic

                              • Logic Apps wide default retry policy

                                By default each action comes with a default retry policy (4 retries 20 seconds apart if I'm not wrong), and this policy can be setup manually for each action. It would be great if that could be set up instead as a logic app wide policy. This would be specially useful in synchronous scenarios were we need to remove the retries (or make it smaller) from each action to avoid timeouts - e.g. setup a logic app wide No Retry policy.

                                  • Context Help in designer for Actions and Triggers to explain what they are

                                    With so many Action and Triggers in Logic app, it is really hard to understand the purpose of it. Can there be a small description of what is the purpose of that trigger/action and also if there is any Blog/MSDN Article to help further. This could show up in similar lines as it shows User Voice option.

                                    • Exponential polling for queue/topics

                                      Currently Logic app doesn't support exponential polling for azure queue and topics. due to this as a customer I would end up paying more when there is message comes on queue very sprodically. “Check service bus queue every 15 seconds, but exponentially backoff until a maximum of 10 minutes”

                                      • Publish Action and Subscribe Trigger

                                        Create a new 'Publish' Action that allows a Logic App to publish a message without the need for SB Queue. Additionally, create a new 'Subscribe' Trigger that can subscribe to any 'Publish' action within the same resource group of another Logic App. Degree of parallelism should be included in the 'Subscribe' trigger similar to splitOn. SB Q has message size limitations plus all of the complexities of using it with a LA. This model would greatly simplify a business event model.

                                        • Versioning of Logic Apps for SxS deployments

                                          Enable the versioning and execution of specific version of a logic app to enable SxS execution. Goal is to flight changes for different scenarios and for 'test in production' using canary tenants.
