Triggering a Microsoft Flow using a Webpage or HTTP GET Request

Leave a comment

There are several use cases where you may want to run a Microsoft Flow from a web page or sending an HTTP GET request. Let’s do this. We will create a flow that runs when a user accesses a web address and performs the action of posting to a Microsoft Teams chat.

First, let’s create an Instant Microsoft Flow by going to https://flow.microsoft.com and selecting New->Instant – From Blank:

We will call the flow Send Alert from HTTP, and select When an HTTP request is received, then click Create:

This takes us to the Flow designer. Click New step:

We will choose Microsoft Teams:

And Post a Message

Now let’s fill in the details for our Teams message. We will post to our Warehouse Team, General Channel with the message “Stock is low, please resupply”:

For the method, let’s choose GET:

We can see an HTTP GET URL has been generated. Copy the link:

And let’s go to that web address by pasting it into a browser:

On hitting the web page, we can see our Flow is run and the message is posted to our Teams chat:
