Approval Email Flow Failure

Hi there,

 

I've created a flow that starts when selected in the document library for specific documents. In the flow it requests approval for an item. If that is approved, the status is updated and a second email is sent to another approver. The approvers are stored as properties of the document. 

 

I'm getting the following failure:

Error type

This action failed because of an error in the connector.

The request failed. Response content: '{"status":400,"message":"Required property is missing.\r\nclientRequestId: 9e73d60b-597b-4874-b0d5-1134dbf28e66","source":"office365connectionprovider-northeurope.db3-ase-001.p.azurewebsites.net"}'.

 

 I'm struggling to insert a screenshot but essentially:

 

When a HTTP request is received - Passes

Get item - Passes

Send approval email - Fails

 

BadRequest. The request failed. Response content: '{"status":400,"message":"Required property is missing.\r\nclientRequestId: 9e73d60b-597b-4874-b0d5-1134dbf28e66","source":"office365connectionprovider-northeurope.db3-ase-001.p.azurewebsites.net"}'.

 

Condition - Fails

 
ActionConditionFailed. The execution of template action 'Condition' is skipped: the 'runAfter' condition for action 'Send_approval_email' is not satisfied. Expected status values 'Succeeded' and actual value 'Failed'.

The error is occurring in the Send Approval Email action. Is the above more helpful? 

 

Apologies for the change in name - some issue with my account.

Re: Approval Email Flow Failure

I changed the way I set up the workflow completely. I now use the Sharepoint actions: For a Selected Item, and Get Item, and then I could do what I wanted.  This means I have to trigger the flow for each document individually and manually from Sharepoint, but at least it works! Let me know if anyone finds an easier way.
