Create a stack trace in Power Automate flows

Many pro developers will be familiar with the concept of stack traces. Can we take this idea into the low code world?

The stack trace is a well known concept in pro code development. Can we take this idea and use it in low code platforms like Power Automate?

In the past I introduced pro code patterns like Try-Catch to help error handling. This time I’m looking at the first steps, to enhance your debugging within Power Automate with a stack trace.

What is a Strack Trace

A “stack trace” is a list of function calls that shows the path of execution that led to a particular point in a program. It is typically generated when an error occurs in the program, and is used to help developers debug the issue.

The stack trace shows the names of the functions or methods that were called, along with their arguments and the line numbers where they were called. The list is organized in reverse order, with the most recent function call at the top of the stack and the initial function call (usually the main function) at the bottom.

By examining the stack trace, developers can often identify the source of the error and the sequence of events that led up to it. This information can be used to fix the issue or to provide more detailed information to other developers who may be working on the same codebase.
