If you have confidential data and you don’t want that data to be visible to users you can hide that data using secure input and output settings in Power Automate.

This blog will help you understand how to secure your input and output in Power Automate.

Steps to enable Secure Input and Output

  1. Select your trigger or action, click on more commands(…) and click on Settings.
  1. You can see “Secure Inputs” and “Secure Outputs” options.

let’s see some scenarios to understand in detail how it works.

Scenario 1:Secure Inputs only.

Observations:

  • You can see lock symbol on the step.

After Running the flow

  • For INPUTS you can see the “Content not shown due to security configuration” message.
  • As we have not secured OUTPUTS, you can see outputs are visible.
  • In the first compose action I have passed the “firstname” and “lastname” from the “When an HTTP request is received” trigger and we have secured the input of the trigger that’s why we can see Input and Output of compose action is automatically hidden.
  • In the second compose action I have passed the output of the first compose action and the value of that is visible because we have not secured input of the first compose action.

Scenario 2: Secure Inputs and Outputs.

Observations:

  • For INPUTS and OUTPUTS, you can see the “Content not shown due to security configuration” message.

Scenario 3: Secure Compose action.

  • As you noticed in the above two scenarios, the 2nd compose action(“Output of First Compose action”) data is still visible.
  • to hide that data we have to secure input of Compose action.

Observations:

  • For INPUTS and OUTPUTS, you can see the “Content not shown due to security configuration” message.
