Finding the Flow Run URL

The URL generated when you run a flow is the Flow Run URL. The URL includes the Flow ID, which remains constant throughout the lifecycle of a flow, and the Flow Version ID, which is updated every time a flow is edited. It also includes information about the player used to run the flow. If you change the player and reporting mode, the run URL is modified with the changes as well.

What is the difference between Run and Publish?

  • Run: Snapshots the current version of the flow, and runs that version. The URL in the Run dialog contains a Flow Version ID.
  • Publish: Snapshots the current version of the flow, and make that version the default version.

Whenever you run a flow without a Flow Version ID specified, it will use the last published version. You may want to share links that do not contain the Flow Version ID with your end users, so they always have the latest published version of your app.
