What defines Power Automate flows within PVA context?

Posted on by 152

PVA licensing guide states that the standalone PVA subscription includes entitlements to Power Automate flows that are within 'Power Virtual Agents context'. Does that mean that every flow must begin and end with PVA connectors or is it enough to start creating the flow from PVA web console for it to register as 'PVA' flow? Some of our flows begin with a PVA connector, but end without one (e.g. when Try, Catch scopes are defined) and there are a few scenarios where we would need to trigger child flows that are without PVA connectors.

    In terms of PVA it means that the flow must be triggered by a PVA bot.  So yes, it must start with the PVA connector actions. It doesn't have to end with anything unless you want to return a value. For child flows they are in context if they are triggered from a flow that is triggered by PVA.
