Business value

Desktop flow users aren't limited to hard-coded credentials to use desktop flows in attended mode. It's now possible to set up a connection without providing a password using Azure Active Directory authentication. For many customers and organizations, passwords aren't used anymore making it so they can't run attended desktop flows.

Feature details

With this feature, users can create a desktop flow connection specifying which machine to target and their current user account. The desktop flow connection will be visible in Power Automate and can be used to launch a desktop automation in attended mode.
