Click on Save. You can click on Run to launch it directly. But here, because we don’t manage the RSS feed of Microsoft, we need to wait for the first error to check if it works fine.

As you can see, it’s very easy to deploy a logic app and you it, to automate many things, without any programming languages knowledge.
