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?

    • 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

      • MQ connector in logic apps just stopped working

        I had a (working) logic app which was sending data to an MQ queue. Now it has ceased to work because it's removed the datagram I was sending, which was the output of a previous action (parse JSON). When I go back into the logic app designer and try to add the message, it allows me to select it, but the designer does not allow me to save the changes.

        • Trigger VSTS builds from a Logic App

          I'd like to be able to trigger a VSTS build from a Logic App so I could define build pipelines that could be seen visually. This functionality doesn't quite exist in VSTS yet. Ideally a library project could post to a Service Bus topic notifying build success (existing functionality), and a Logic App triggered by the topic could kick off a downstream build.

          This would let me configure builds externally from VSTS build definitions, and allow significant flexibility in my CD pipeline.

          I can work around this using a HTTP call to VSTS to trigger the build, but it would…

            • SharePoint Online - When an existing item is modified - MMS Column Failure - Bad Gateway

              Steps to reproduce:

              1) Add 'When an existing item is modified' trigger to a new Logic App or Flow.

              2) Target list has MMS column where internal name is different to display name - a display name with spaces ('Company Name'), and an internal name without ('CompanyName').

              Result: On run, Bad Gateway: status 502, message "Unknown Error", source "<URL>/_api/SP.APIHubConnector.GetUpdatedListItems".

              Does not appear to happen with other types of field (e.g. text, lookup). Does not seem to depend upon term set title.

              Workaround: create columns where the internal name and display name are the same.

              Why this is bad: it encourages…

                  The Microsoft Cognitive Services offer great opportunities for developers and moreover they are ideal for logic apps. Some Cognitive Services (LUIS, Text Analytics, Computer Vision) already have connectors.

                      • Gateway requires MySQL to be installed globally

                        Currently the MySQL Connector requires you to install a specific version of the MySQL .Net Connector (I believe 6.5.5) in the GAC. If the server already has other apps on it with a different version of the driver this will cause the other apps to fail. The MySQL DLL should be part of the Gateway install so it will be accessed locally (same folder as executable), therefore not causing a conflict with other MySQL Apps. Or fix it so if you have newer version installed in the GAC it can use it.

                                    Life360 integration.

                                    Maybe it's just limited to my acquaintance circle, but everyone I know seems to use it.

                                    It's this app that publishes your location to your friends/family, and lets people of your choice stalk you. It would be very useful, at least for the people I know, for that functionality to be integrated into Microsoft Flow.

                                    • Create a trigger for "On SQL Row Insert"

                                      I have a table in an Azure SQL DB that I put email notifications that I need sent. Currently I have to have a 15 minute timer "sweep" job that gets the emails from that table and sends them.

                                      Why can't we have a trigger to fire off Logic Apps based on rows inserted into a table. I would be ok if we had to set polling duration and it wasn't a true JUST IN TIME trigger.

                                      • 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.

                                        • Add Rename action to SFTP/FTP/Storage etc. connectors

                                          Transferring files with a temporary file name and renaming after completed upload is standard practice, supported for example by BizTalk since beginning.

                                          But currently Rename action seems to be missing from file based connectors (SFTP/FTP/Blob/File).

                                          A workaround could be 1) copy temp --> final 2) delete temp, but simple rename would be more reliable as copy creates a new file which could cause problems.

                                          Unfortunately it seems that this is still a very common scenario especially in B2B message exchange, so rename support would increase reliability,
