you can see them in inventory, but is it config or operational inventory. If they are in config, it's not guaranteed that they are programmed to your switch. the switch could have rejected them, for instance. If they are in operational, that means the switch is reporting (to ODL) that the flows are there. If that's the case, then maybe you are using the wrong CLI to see the flows on the switch.

How to distinguish when a flow that I add, is in operational or in config inventory?

The problem was that I was attempting malformed flows, but the controller didnt throw errors.It just didnt take them.So, I tried some already created from the link above and everything worked fine. Still, how can I distinguish in which inventory I pass the flow?

I think you are missing concepts over here, I ll recommend you to review documentation about how does it works and what config and operational store represents. As @jamoluhrsen said, when you push the flow, it get stored in config data store ( here goes what you do). In operational DS you will see what is reflected from the nodes, so as mentioned before if the flow are not in operational, it means that they are not stored/accepted by the node. But you will be able to see it in config even if it the flow is no correct.
