There are three types of flows within Power Automate, cloud flow is one and the others are desktop flows and business process flows. Cloud flows is what we used to know as Microsoft Flow, the traditional flow that we can use to set up different kinds of automation. Connect to different data source with the help of one of the existing connectors or create your own custom connector.
You can create cloud flows from within Maker Portal, where you can work in Solutions in order to be able to create your flows in a development environment and then move it to a test and a production environment. You can view and monitor your cloud flows in the Flow Portal.
