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.

  1. Expand on premises SQL stored procedure support

    Currently 'Execute Stored Procedure' does not support ReturnCode or OutputParameters for on-premises SQL. These can be essential to some integration projects (eg. to get a count of affected rows), and without them it can be particularly problematic where there is no ability to change the stored procedures to work around this limitation.

    • Resubmit with resubmit-flag

      It would be useful to know if the Logic App run was initiated by a user resubmitting. Currently, with a peek-lock Logic App, the status is always failure on resubmitted runs because the message doesn't exist to complete. If I could know if it was resubmitted I wouldn't try to complete the message.

      • Support the execution of procedures and functions in Oracle Connector

        The Oracle connector only allows simple queries on tables.
        In most integration scenarios, the execution of procedures and functions are required, many of them included in packages.
        It is very usual for customers using Oracle Database this implementation.

        • Variable initialization inside a scope

          I tried to add a scope with intention of initializing all the required variables in my logic app. It turns out that we cant use the variable initialization action inside a scope.

          I would like to see ability to
          1> Define variables within a scope
          2>To be able to say if this is a local or a global variable.

          This helps in many scenarios
          1> grouping all variable initialization into single scope- logic app looks tidier
          2> We might want to define few local variables.

          Thanks
          Srini

          • Timer Trigger CRON Scheduling

            As part of the existing timer trigger it would be great if the interval could be set via CRON expressions, similar to how you allow this with Azure Functions.

            For example, I have some scenarios when I want a Logic App to execute once per working day (Monday to Friday here) at 9am

            Functions ref: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/azure-functions/functions-bindings-timer

            • Null check keyword

              I'd like a keyword to check for a null value inside your message. I have found a way to hack together the current keywords to make something like this: @equals(coalesce(triggerBody()?.prop, 'Fallback42'), 'Fallback42'). But an isNull keyword would be a lot better.

              • Can we search the LogicApp run instance using TRACKING ID?

                Good see the more search options in LogicApp run history like run identifier etc.
                It would be good if we can search the LogicApp run instance using TRACKING ID of action.

                • Improve Logic Apps Management API to search for specific runs

                  Extend the search filter of the List WorkflowRuns in the Management API, to enable search on outputs, correlationId and trackingId. Currently only state and time are supported, which doesn't leave that many options to query. This will allow easy creation of custom dashboards, that can monitor messages cross Logic Apps.

                  • Improve monitoring of outputs

                    For monitoring, outputs are preferred, compared to tracked properties, as they reside on the workflow run level itself. However, they are only tracked in case a Logic App succeeds. This feature request is to improve the monitoring experience of outputs. Two steps are proposed:

                    >> Ensure that outputs are also monitored in case a workflow runs does not complete successfully.
                    >> Provide OMS integration for outputs and foresee configuration option to only monitor runs and no actions (will save a lot of unneeded records in OMS).

                      • Record creation actions shouldn't require fields as mandatory if they are generated in Dynamics 365O automatically via number sequences

                        When you use the Dynamics 365 for Operation action for record creation, there are certain fields which are required on the Designer screen for the selected data entity, even if a data entity can be imported without these data by using the Data management framework. These fields should not be marked as reuiqred as they are tied to a number sequence and IDs are being automatically generated during record entry.
                        Typical examples for such fields:
                        - SalesOrderHeader data entity: Sales order (ID)
                        - SalesOrderLines data entity: Lot ID

                        • Pick/WaitAny Action

                          It would be great to be able to appy the notion of a Pick Activity (from WF 4.5) or WaitAny (.Net Task speak) within the workflow (designer or code view).

                          Currently you can go parallel (code view only), but the can must wait for both. It would seem that the RunAfter would need some notion of OR (WaitAny)/AND (WaitAll):

                          "Terminate": {
                          "inputs": {
                          "runError": {},
                          "runStatus": "Failed"
                          },
                          "runAfter": {
                          "Delay": [
                          "Succeeded"
                          ],
                          "HTTP_Webhook": [
                          "Succeeded"
                          ]
                          },
                          "type": "Terminate"
                          }

                              • Push triggers

                                If we want a responsive service bus or FTP connector we have to poll frequently which costs thousands of dollars a year (per logic app). Polling a queue does not seem to be a complex operation so why must we be charged so much for this really basic operation? Can you create a push trigger that only charges us when data is really retrieved?

                                  Thanks for your suggestion.
                                  Note that for service bus does 30 second long polling so the minimum polling time needed to get a message immediately is 30 seconds, which, with an EA subscription, would only cost you about $100/year.

                                • Capbility to run LogicApp in verbose mode

                                  When user opens the LogicApps designer in the portal, there is a "Run" button to execute the workflow. There could be another useful option to "Run in verbose mode". When user clicks this option, separate OUTPUT window would launch in a new blade. During this mode, runtime information could be captured in the output window along with the time stamps and other useful micro-details. Also, user can write custom debug traces to capture various runtime variables.

                                    How can we use SQL Get Rows to display data using Views?

                                    • Disable/Enable an 'Action' in the LogicApp workflow.

                                      During building & testing a LogicApps, I need to skip certain actions to verify behavior of later actions independently in the flow. Currently, I need to remove the action to perform such task (which is not very productive).
                                      Providing enable/disable feature for action(s) will help in this scenario.

                                      Also, in case, where action needs some input from previous action then feature like "disabling with default output" (mock) will be a great help during development phase.

                                      • Action to Run Data Factory Pipeline

                                        It would be very powerful to have an Action that would trigger running a Data Factory Pipeline. I am currently staging data to storage and when it is complete I would like to trigger a Data Factory Pipeline to run. There are many other workflows I could implement with this functionality.

                                        • Short Circuit Boolean Logic

                                          https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Short-circuit_evaluation

                                          Allowing boolean logic to be short circuited would streamline input condition checking without requiring multiple nested conditional steps.

                                          The specific situation I have is that I want to compare two string values, but in some cases a null may be passed in. Consequently, this doesn't work:

                                          and(not(empty(xx)),greaterOrEquals(xx, yy))

                                          (Note that using ?. / ?[ operators don't help in this case.)
