Step 1:  set the connections

To be able to use the flow you will need to initiate 2 connections:

  • One for approvals to be able to use the Microsoft feature in the flow
  • One for Powell Teams to be able to get information about the team creation and at the end create or deny the team creation

Step 2:  set the Powell Teams template

You should create an automation on Powell Teams based on the trigger "After approval workflow request sent".

Then you have to add this automation into a Powell Teams template. Into the "governance" section, you have to select your new automation and save your template.

Step 2:  set the source & target of the flow

After setting the different connections, we will configure the flow itself by setting the trigger and approvers. 

You should copy the HTTP POST URL of the first step of the flow into the automation configuration into Powell Teams. So that the team creation made within Powell Teams trigger the flow.
