Microsoft Flow Best Practices

Iron Contributor

What are the best practices of Managing Flows in an enterprise enviroonment in terms of:

- restricting who can create flow

- account to use for creating flows

- source control or versioning of flows and how to update Flows that are in production

- documenting Flows?  Do I take snapshots and create word documents around the functionality of the Flow or is there a way to export the Flow into Visio as we do with SPD Workflows?

Is there any update on this original query? I would also like to know how to restrict access to Flow?

Hi all, to ensure Flow is used securely in your enterprise, you can setup Data Loss Prevention (DLP) policies:

Is there any update on this? Specifically, I'd like to understand how to version a Flow that is already in production?
