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. Update VSTS Work Item State

    Please add the ability to update the state of Visual Studio Team Services work items (e.g. New / In Progress / Done). It's already possible to set the VSTS work item state in the "create a work item" action - this is needed in the "Update a work item" action.

    • Add support for Elasticsearch

      Would be nice to (bulk) index documents directly using a connector instead of using an Azure Function which connects to Elasticsearch using the NEST library for example.

      • Increase the file size limitation

        I had really high hopes for using logic apps for all our B2B integration needs, but it looks like this limitation has laid waste to that. We have files that routinely exceed 30 Meg, which is obviously under the limit. However, as soon as we try to decode the messages, (X12 EDI in this case), the app errors out. Understand that any large enterprises that exchange all sorts of data, be they catalog data or claims information, are going to run into this issue. Considering how much that Integration Account costs per hour, I'd think that would be a prime…

        • Call U-SQL stored procedure from Logic App

          I want to create web services that will do some analytics with u-SQL and it will return new CSV file. Basically, I wanted in my Logic App to have an action with u SQL stored procedure.

          • Multiple start triggers

            Would be great to set multiple start triggers in Logic App.
            For Example: You have different Microsoft Forms, for internal and external, but they all should start the same Logic App.

            At the moment you can use the "Code View" to create multiple start triggers for an Logic app, but with changing the code the "Design View" is not available anymore.

                • Dynamic connectors

                  We would like to provide connection information at runtime rather than design time. For example we have FTP connections with 100 different partners. We would like to have 1 Logic App which takes the ftp server, username, password and foldername from configuration. Currently we need a separate Logic App for each FTP connection.

                  BizTalk has the concept of dynamic send ports and it would be nice to have this feature in Logic Apps as well.

                  • Additional Transaction Entities in Dynamics 365 for Finance & Operations

                    Add additional entities to be able to complete many operations functions automatically through Logic Apps. This can be very useful for companies that already have a shop floor system collecting data.

                    Proposed entities would be:
                    Purchase order > Product receipts - To be able to automatically receive products on an open purchase order with ticket number.

                    Item Batches - To be able to create batches automatically for production order or receipt automation.

                    Production Order > Batch orders - To be able to create batch orders with formulas (production order is available currently).

                    Batch Order Picking Lists - To be able…

                    • Much tighter integration with Function Apps

                      There should be a much tighter integration between functions and logic apps.

                      You should be able to add a C# code block directly in the Logic App designer.

                      You configure this code block in the gui in the same way as any other action, by selecting the input parameters and so on.

                      The prototype "main function" should be partly automatically generated so it contains all the configured parameters and their correct data type.

                      There should be NOTHING here indicating that this has anything to do with either Logic apps or Function apps, it should just be a plain C# file.

                      • New acction: ForEach X items

                        There should be a way to handle and work with a collection of items in a foreach loop.

                        In many cases individual items is a to small work unit, and the majority of time is spent on all the "plumbing" that is needed to get to the point where you actually do the work.

                        It could be something like this in C#:

                        ForEach(10; var values in sourceCollection)
                        {
                        // here values could be anything from 1 to 10 items

                        // on the first iteration values would contain the first 10 items in sourceCollection (0-9)
                        // on the second iteration values…

                            • Documentation is unclear for integration account.

                              This statement is confusion. It's isn't clear how integration accounts are free at no cost? nor how are the charged on consumption basis. I think they are charged by hour (whether used or not). Please have a look at the attached.

                                • Add locking to the OPDGW File Create

                                  Currently the OPDGW File Create does not do any locking. While writing large files (>2MB) it allows other processes to read and the delete file it is creating. If a file is deleted while it was not finished creating it, the remainder of the file is written to an new file with the same name. Because no Rename File exists, it is not easy to use the File Create as an alternative to the BizTalk Logic Adapter connector which also has issues with large files.
