    If you have custom variables in your digital credential, you can add them to your flow in Microsoft Power Automate by saving the flow and then going back to edit it. In the data section of the flow, you can create variables in the given format and map them to the appropriate data. Once you have completed this step, you can save the flow again. If you need any help with this process, feel free to contact the support team via live chat or by emailing [email protected].

  10. Once you have set up the trigger and configured the flow to issue a digital credential to the recipient, you can save your changes. Now, whenever an event occurs that matches the selected trigger, the flow will execute and issue a digital credential to the recipient as specified.
