how can we create state machine workflow using Microsoft Flow in SharePoint?

Scenario

I've a custom input form that submits the data to SharePoint List, i need to trigger it once item is added to the list and it should do the following

1) It should go for Managers Approval

2) If rejected, send back to Requester for more information

3) Requester update the form and send back to Manager for approval or vice versa

4) Once approved, generate a pdf file of input form and send that pdf in email / provide a link to download it.

Microsoft Flow does not provide a native way to build state machine workflow what does not mean it can be done. I recommend you to take a look at the following blog post written by Serge Luca: https://sergeluca.wordpress.com/2018/01/21/pattern-for-implementing-state-machines-with-microsoft-fl...

I've already visited that link you shared.....from your words "Microsoft Flow does not provide a native way to build state machine workflow" it means Flow does not support state machine flows????? please confirm

 

in order to create state machine we need to manage it by yourself ? or it is not possible to create state machine flows using MS flow?
