Calling Actions from Copilot Studio

Initialize a variable from action

Posted on by 7

Hey, I need to increment an PVA bot variable using an Power automate flow. Is it possible as the docs say it can be updated using external source.

    Hi @Chatbotdev ,


    Unfortunately, you can't increment a variable with Power Automate variables with external sources.

    You can use one or more variables inside the inputs to Power Automate or init variables inside the outputs.

    And you can get external sources using canvas, but not into the inputs or outputs variables in Power automate.
