If you’re a developer with a keen interest in providing automated solutions for your organization, this certification could be a great fit for you. You know how to automate time-consuming and repetitive tasks by using Microsoft Power Automate. You review solution requirements, create process documentation, and design, develop, troubleshoot, and evaluate solutions. Working with business stakeholders, you help to improve and automate business workflows. And you collaborate with administrators to deploy solutions to production environments and to support solutions.


Candidates should have experience with JSON, cloud flows and desktop flows, integrating solutions with REST and SOAP services, analyzing data by using Microsoft Excel, VBScript, Visual Basic for Applications (VBA), HTML, JavaScript, one or more programming languages, and the Microsoft Power Platform suite of tools (AI Builder, Power Apps, Dataverse, and Power Virtual Agents).

Skills Gained

After completing this course, students will be able to:

Course outline

Section 1: Design solutions
Determine how to interact with an application targeted for automation
• evaluate whether a target application can be automated
• choose which automation technology to use to interact with a target application,
• including using selectors and user interface element inspection
• plan connection, payload, and other relevant information for required APIs
• verify access to target applications
Determine which types of Power Automate flows to implement
• differentiate cloud flows and desktop flows
• select which logical components are required for a solution, including flows, triggers
• connectors, canvas apps, and model-driven apps
• develop a strategy for running flows, including running flows serially or in parallel
• choose connectors for a solution, including custom connectors
Design the solution
• design an automation model that includes required flow types and automation methods
• select the types of triggers to use to meet specific business requirements

Finalize development and test solutions
• differentiate between features and behaviors of debug and compiled solutions
• create and implement a test plan
• perform unit testing, and resolve identified issues
• configure and run attended and unattended desktop flows
• debug solutions by using Power Automate debugging features, including Run from here and breakpoints
• identify machine-level differences and dependencies
• prepare and deploy solutions to a user acceptance testing (UAT) environment

Section 3: Deploy and manage solutions
Configure solution infrastructure
• configure machine management options, including machine registration and machine groups
• implement queue management to distribute workloads
• implement logging and alerts
• implement role-based access control (RBAC)
• manage credentials by using Azure Key Vault
• determine whether to implement data loss prevention (DLP) policies at the tenant level or the environment level
• implement Data Loss Prevention (DLP) policies and other options to protect sensitive and confidential data
• connect to on-premises data by using a data gateway
• Prepare solutions for deployment to production
• create and manage environment variables and solution configuration files
• select a package type, and prepare a solution package
• configure priority for flows
• configure machines and machine groups
• configure child flows
Deploy and manage solutions
• replicate settings from development and user acceptance testing (UAT) environments to production
• deploy a solution to a production environment
• describe use cases for and capabilities of process advisor
• monitor solutions by using process advisor
