Flow Triggered WVD DevOps Build

This is a blog about a new WVD DevOps build triggered by Flow. This Pipeline creates a new Windows 10 Immutable image which I use for my WVD deployment. To trigger this build you can use Microsoft Flow (PowerAutomate).


You need the Flow premium license, more information about the licensing.

Install the mobile Microsoft Flow app.

Furthermore, you need to have permissions in the DevOps project. More information about permissions in Azure DevOps.

Build the flow

Go the Microsoft Flow Panel.

Click on create and after that click on “Automated Flow”:
