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. 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.

    • Allow adding parameters with a default value on the designer view

      Allow adding parameters with a default value on the designer view so it can be easier to prepare Logic Apps for CI/CD

      • Embeddable visual designer

        It would be great if we could embed the visual workflow designer from the portal into our own web apps to allow admin users to edit the workflow steps. Then we could post the updated JSON back to Azure Logic Apps via the REST API.

          • Multiple Slots

            Like Web App and API App where you can configure multiple slots , it would be a good idea for Logic app also to have similar configuration. So when I test a dev slot for my web I would connect to the dev slot of my logic app

            • visual studio code

              Allow Logic Apps designer to be used from within Visual Studio Code.

              This would enable Logic Apps to be used in a cross platform manner outside the browser. Ideally the JSON file / template would be generated locally and would allow it to integrate with the VSCode git integration, which could then be deployed to Azure in the same way as for VS generally.

                • Data Operations - Parse XML

                  Have a Parse XML that is similar to the Data Operations - Parse JSON, so we can access the fields in the XML message the same way.

                    • Edit action JSON from visual designer

                      I would love to have a slide out window to edit the JSON for a specific action/trigger without having to switch to code view and hunt for the action definition and then switch back to designer and navigate back to the action again.

                        • Disable a Logic App for being updated in the Portal when linked to Source COntrol

                          Are there any plans to provide a possibility to disable to edit a Logic App through the Portal? A bit like Azure Functions, when you link it to source control, you only can edit via Visual Studio.
                          Offcourse only if VS tooling allows all possible functionality of the Portal Editor.

                          • 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

                            • Logic App designer - embedded

                              Ability to embed the Logic App Designer in apps for ISVs and developers, just like Power BI Embedded. This will enable developers and ISVs to embed and use Logic Apps including SaaS applications. This will open up the possibility of business users to create and manage Logic Apps instead of IT doing it.

                                    • Assign JSON Object variable properties with setProperty() or similar directly in a single Action

                                      Directly assign a single property value to a JSON Object variable without a Liquid Transform (this requiring an Integration Account) or doing a Compose and taking output into Set Variable.

                                      • Add a real langage for Logic Apps.

                                        Coders like myself are very frustrated with the point and click paradigm - we prefer language and grammar. The current "code" view isn't really a legitimate offering in this respect. A good Logic Apps DSL is called for. I'll reference Power Query and "M" as an example where the code view was done right. You can have the language marshall back and forth to the current JSON representation, and that JSON would be behind the scenes or perhaps exposed with an "advanced mode" editor.
