Renaming and deleting referenced Flow actions is now possible

A small step for the flow team, but a giant step for the flow users… We have being asking this since the beginning of the product in 2016. Renaming and deleting referenced flow actions is now possible.

For instance if I have an action named “Start an approval for line manager” referenced somewhere in my flow, I can now renamed it as illustrated below; the references are updated.

actionrenaming

If you delete the same action, you will be warned if it is referenced :

actiondeleted

The referenced dynamic action will be removed as well :

actiondeleted2

That was for the good news. However at the time of writing this post, I’ve found a bug:

When you renamed an action that is directly referenced, renaming works fine, but when the action name is used from within a logic app expression, it is not always renamed :

For instance, if you start from this flow :

actiondeleted3

…and now if you rename the first compose, its name does not change…

actiondeleted4
