Announcing Microsoft Flow Analytics

As Microsoft Flow consumption increases in organizations, customers are looking for more insight into the health of flows running within their environment. To address this feedback, we recently launched Microsoft Flow Analytics in all Microsoft Flow regions. This capability allows people building flows, with a Flow P2 license, to gain insight into the health of their flows from an analytics dashboard.

In this release, we are providing the ability to view:

  • Total flow runs by day
  • Number of flow runs
  • Flow runs trend

Accessing Flow Analytics

There are a few different ways a user can access the analytics feature:

  • Option 1: From the Maker Portal (https://flow.microsoft.com), navigate to the My flows or Team flows lists, click on the ... dropdown and then click on See analytics.

  • Option 2: Select the flow you are interested in from the My flows or Team flows list. With your flow selected, you will see a See analytics link. Click on this link to view the analytics for this flow.

  • Option 3: On a flow's main page, click on the More dropdown and then click on See analytics.

  • Using any of these approaches, you will be transitioned to an analytics experience for that specific flow. As you can see in the following image, there are 3 visualizations available for us to explore. The current experience is focused on the number of run executions and whether they are successful or have failed. We provide both metrics over a span of the last thirty days.

Note: It may take up to an hour for analytics data to appear within this dashboard. If you are looking for instant run execution data, please see run details for a specific flow.

Licensing Requirements

Accessing Flow Analytics requires a Flow Plan 2 license. If you do not see the See analytics link appearing in the maker portal, that means that you do not meet the minimum licensing requirements. For more details about Flow licensing, including signing up for a free Flow Plan 2 trial license, please visit our licensing page
