Is there a easy way to find broke/incomplete or defected flows?

When a flow is really broken then it is marked in the flow editor.

But sometimes it is not marked broken, for example when a flow is renamed and the flow card does not contain the renamed name.

Also when external params have changed, for example the harmony hub, you changed or removed some activity’s from the hub but you used those activities also in flow cards in Homey.
So the flow won’t work because the activity does not exist anymore, but the flow itself is not marked broken or defected in the flow manager at all.

You removed a logical value but used them also in flows, the flows do not work anymore but are not marked as broken/defected.

So is there a way to easily find any broken/defected/incomplete flows?

Used to work when searching for “broken” in flow overview (bottom left corner) in https://flow.homey.app/. Not sure if that still works.

In this case the flow is not broken and works still.

@tlangelaar, unfortunately not. I created a numeric variable and added it to a logic card in a flow. Then I deleted the variable, so the flow was damaged. But the flow was not displayed when I searched for “broken”. Very sad!

correct, this is what i also have.

I deleted some logic values, the same values i used in flows are not present (empty card) but the flow is not marked as broken.

This also happens with external apps such as hue (start scene x etc) or harmony hub (start activity x), when you delete these values homey does not mark them as broken.
In this case i have to view a lot of flows to find where i used these values to fix it…

Sorry that didn’t work. @Dijker, do you know if special keywords are available in the search box of https://flow.homey.app/? They used to be in the old Homey phone app.
