In aura programming model, we could set input variables and invoke the flow like below. flow.startFlow("Delete_Contact_From_Account", inputVariables);

How do we achieve something similar in an LWC Component? please note Lightning web component can now be added in flow screens.

after investigation, I found that as of now the only way is to wrap it inside an aura component and fire event from lwc cmp to an aura when on the onchange handler the flow is called.


Lightning Flows can now be embedded in LWCs.
