Start Power Automate Flow from Button in Footer

Copper Contributor


In my Sharepoint Form that opens from my List-Element, I want to integrate a Button that starts a Workflow. 

    "elmType": "div",
    "style": {
        "width": "100%",
        "text-align": "left",
        "overflow": "hidden",
        "border-top-width": "1px"
    "children": [
            "elmType": "div",
            "style": {
                "width": "100%",
                "padding-top": "10px"
            "children": [
                    "$schema": "",
                    "elmType": "button",
                    "style": {
                        "backgroundColor": "#fefbd8",
                        "borderRadius": "8px",
                        "borderStyle": "none",
                        "boxSizing": "border-box",
                        "color": "#f18973",
                        "cursor": "pointer",
                        "display": "inline-block",
                        "fontFamily": "\"Haas Grot Text R Web\", \"Helvetica Neue\", Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif",
                        "fontSize": "14px",
                        "fontWeight": "500",
                        "height": "40px",
                        "lineHeight": "20px",
                        "listStyle": "none",
                        "margin": "0",
                        "outline": "none",
                        "padding": "10px 16px",
                        "position": "relative",
                        "textAlign": "center",
                        "textDecoration": "none",
                        "transition": "color 100ms",
                        "verticalAlign": "baseline",
                        "userSelect": "none",
                        "WebkitUserSelect": "none",
                        "touchAction": "manipulation",
                        "visibility": "=if(([$Status] == 'Überprüft und finalisiert'),'hidden','visible')"
                    "txtContent": "=if(([$Status] == 'offen'), 'Erstellung erfolgt', if(([$Status] == 'Erstellung erfolgt'), 'Überprüft und finalisiert', 'Nonvisible'))",
                     "customRowAction": {
    "action": "executeFlow",
	"actionParams": "{\"id\": \"972013a1-fd18-4457-ab9f-83659da9fbc1\"}"


Is this even  possible? All I found where solutions that integrated the Button in a column.

Thanks so much for any help!

@EVMS_ Unfortunately, it is not supported in JSON used in header/footer layout of list forms.


customRowAction (executeFlow) is not supported in list form JSON formatting.
