Ping Action(Power Automate Desktop)


Japanese version.

This action checks to see if the remote computer is accessible.

It is basically intended for remote desktop and web access servers, In reality, the function of responding to a ping is different from other functions, In practice, however, the function of responding to a ping is not the same as the other functions, so a ping response does not necessarily mean that a connection can be established. The reverse is also true. (Although the status is generally the same).

In many cases, error handling and implementation according to conditions are simpler than confirming the response by ping.

For this reason, this action is used infrequently.
