#LogicApps – Introduction and main differences with Microsoft Flow #MSFlow


After writing a lot about Microsoft Flow (see References), it’s time to move on with his older brother: Azure Logic Apps. To get an idea of the relationship between the two products, it’s best to start with

Microsoft Flow is built on the features and architecture provided by Azure Logic Apps.

Both tools give us the ability to define processes using a visual designer, they have hundreds of connectors for Microsoft tools and 3rd party services. And these processes are started by a trigger. The main advantage behind Microsoft Flow and Logic Apps is that complex processes can be approached quickly and simply.

Another important point is that there are many templates that solve the most common problems that we can find. And, we also have the option to use a template as a starting point for solving a problem.

If we get formal, both platforms would be part of

IPaaS, Integration Platform as a Service

Note: If with IaaS, PaaS and Saas you had no enough, then take IPaas!

Now, I return to the post title question; What is the difference between Microsoft Flow and Logic Apps? The following table of LogicApps’s official documentation explains it very clearly


Well, now that we’ve seen that Logic Apps is Microsoft Flow on steroids, it’s time to start writing posts explaining a little more about advanced scenarios that we can implement with logic apps. Logic apps focuses on it role-oriented, mission-driven scenarios Criticizes and also supports advanced features like editing the code of a process.

This also guarantees that we will be able to define a development life cycle for the Logic Apps (ALM rules!) processes. And finally we will be able to integrate and use Azure services like Azure Security or azure Logs in our Logic Apps processes.

Happy Coding!
