Has anybody managed to create flows that are able to combine these 3 requirements simultaneously:1) Solution Aware2) Parent Child Flows3) Interacts with SharepontI'm currently working to replace workflows with flows. The current task is document location creation on sharepoint that fires upon record creation (IE before user clicks the document folder) and creates a different folder structure than what comes with the OOB dynamics integration. As it sits, I can create them in an isolated standalone flow outside of a solution / without parent/child flows, but haven't been do so within a solution as a child/parent flow (IE a creation handler with a child flow to create the doclocs.Initially I ran into errors, getting the "[flow] cannot be used as a child flow because child workflows only support embedded connections." After a little research, I determined it is because the CDS connectors do not use an embedded connection:https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Building-Flows/Getting-error-calling-a-child-flow/td-p/430120The fix for this is to replace any of the CDS connectors with the "CDS(Current Environment)" connectors, which provide a number of other benefits, such as attribute filtering akin to what is offered by the plugin registration tool. Thumbs u!When attempting to create child flows to create sharepoint document locations, it appears there is not a sharepoint connector that utilizes an embedded connection. I'm guessing this is why sharepoint connections cannot be included in solutions (yet), per https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Building-Flows/Getting-error-calling-a-child-flow/td-p/430120Any pointers?
