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.

    • Rules Engine wants XML

      The rules engine component accepts XML and emits XML but this is a bit of conflict with the rest of logic apps which want JSON. The transform can be done but requires a lot of extra plumbing and you don't get the intellisense on the other actions

      Rules engine should accept JSON and emit JSON to have it work better with the Logic Apps

                • 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.

                  • FTP Connector : GetFiles recursively

                    I would like an option for GetFiles to provide recursive results (perhaps an option for N folder depth?).

                    I'm aware that this can cause a performance lag, but I imagine some parallelization would be possible to minimize the lag as much as possible.

                      There seems to be no way for the FTP connector to perform a GetFiles for the root path.

                      • Open Source Connectors (Twitter, Twilio, Dropbox etc)

                        It would be great if the connectors such as Twitter, Twilio, Dropbox etc.. could be made Open Source so it could be forked on GitHub so that I can make the Twitter connector return a more complex object such as the media object ie the photos attached.

                        For reference here is the forum post re Twitter API Connector
                        https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/5723ebf9-4949-430d-8ab7-a428e81278f6/twitter-api-connector-why-is-the-response-object-not-the-same-as-the-main-twitter-api?forum=AzureAPIApps

                        • Prevent repeated items from being propagated

                          If items in a "repeatItems" are skipped because a condition isn't meant, they should be left out of future inputs. Otherwise, all subsequent conditions need to check the previous step to make sure it succeeded.

                          There may be scenarios where the number of skipped items needs to be reported, but after that, the items just tag along. So all subsequent steps need to check for success even though they may have failed 10 steps ago.

                          Proposed solution: Introduce a filter step that reduces the array based on a condition.

                          • Offer Cooperative Cancellation

                            Support for cooperative cancellation would ease graceful and highly reactive shutdown. It should allow to cancel out of processing and waits.

                              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.

                                  At this point we are only able to push messages to SAP (send an IDOC or call a BAPI/RFC and get the response back) with the SAP Connector from marketplace. Would be nice if we are also able to receive IDOCs from SAP.

                                  • Lock VS created Logic App

                                    Now we can create a Logic App in Visual Studio, we need to lock down the deployed logic app so that it can only be changed from VS and not in the azure portal.

                                    Example... I create a logic app in VS. I deploy via our ALM processes. Later, someone edits the logic app in the Azure Portal. Now source control is out of sync with the logic app = confusion.

                                    • BizTalk Flat File Encoder: Convert a given flat file instance to JSON

                                      A very common integration scenario is that a flatfile (csv) gets uploaded to a ftp server. The file contains e.g. informations about an order which must send to a LOB-system like Salesforce. It would be nice to use a Logic App therefor, together with a FTP Connector, BizTalk Flat File Encoder and Salesforce Connector. But it is not that simple today. As far as I can see so far, we would need need a BizTalk XPath Extractor in addition. So I wish like to see a BizTalk Flat File Encoder which supports json other than just xml. I think with…

                                      • Intellisense / help on WDL expressions

                                        As described in my blog post http://blog.integrationsoftware.se/azure-app-services-series-finding-1-problems-using-workflow-definition-language-in-logic-apps/ one of the problems we see using WDL expressions in the current interface is the basically non-existing help of how to use WDL. We get some help when choosing what input to send into an action, we see a drop down with all available action result items. But let's say we want to use a condition - there is no dropdown for using an action's status, e.g. @actions('youraction').status to use in a condition such as @equals(actions('youraction').status,'FAILED').

                                        There is no help about errors returned by actions/triggers which can be used as an input for…

                                        • BizTalk Server Conume API App Swagger Metadata

                                          We will see all of these great new API apps being created that support SaaS Connectivity. We do know there will be some lag before we have symmetry between Cloud and on-prem offering. We also have BizTalk migration stories to deal with.

                                          In the interim, why not allow BizTalk Server to consume API App Swagger meta data so that we can also plug into this connector eco-system in the mean time? Also allows existing customers to leverage existing investments during this time of transition.

                                          From customer perspective it allows them to pay a little to get incremental value while realizing…
