Agnius Bartninkas - A Deep Dive into Advanced Error Handling and Logging in Power Automate In this session, we will explore the advanced error-handling features of Microsoft Power Automate Desktop (PAD) and demonstrate how to use them to build robust and resilient solutions. You'll also get guidance on how to efficiently log information during runtime of PAD flows, as well as monitor them in real-time using appropriate monitoring tools. As adoption of the Power Platform grows, so does the need to make sure that the solutions built with it are stable and reliable. Although the platform offers various features for error-handling during runtime, many developers may not be familiar with these features or how to use them effectively. This session aims to equip you with the skills you need to error-proof your automations and make sure they are efficient, robust, and can be easy to monitor. You'll learn how to leverage the advanced error-handling features of Power Automate Desktop to build resilient solutions, how to log information during runtime, and how to monitor the flows in real-time using the ELK stack (Elasticsearch, Logstash, and Kibana). This session will be delivered as a hands-on demo, providing you with the opportunity to see how to build resilient and robust solutions in practice. After this session, you'll have a deeper understanding of the advanced error-handling features of Power Automate Desktop and how to use them effectively to build robust and resilient flows. You will also learn how to log important information during runtime of your flows and how to use those logs to monitor your flows remotely. You will see it in action as we will build flows using these technologies during the demo.
