#PowerPlatform – HowTo: Test Power Automate Flow HTTP using Postman

Buy Me A Coffee

Hi !

It’s been a while since I wrote about Power Flow Automate, and this is a good memory reminder for myself, I always spend +30 minutes figuring out how to

Test a Power Automate Flow, triggered when a HTTP request is received using Postman.

So, simple scenario with a Flow triggered when a HTTP request is received. Important detail here, expand advanced options and choose POST as HTTP Method.

For this post, I also use a very simple JSON schema with a boolean variable. Half of the work is done.

Now, let’s go to Postman and create a new session. I’ll assume that you have a basic Postman usage knowledge, if not, check the references.

Complete the URL, and add the Content-Type as application/json value in the Headers section.

In the body section, we can define and test using the Json data. (remember my simple Json schema?)

And that’s it ! As a final step, we can check in the Flow Run history, each one of the flow calls.

Happy coding!
