Child flow not working

I created a parent flow to trigger a child flow to update some records when a user has been disabled. When I added the Run Child Flow action to the Parent Flow, I kept getting an error to say I have to make my child flow not a run user only flow. There is no option on my child flow to set this, I checked the settings area and all I could see is the Connections setting and the Owners setting. Nothing under it. My understanding is you only set the run user only connection if the flow is manually triggered but in my case, the child flow is triggered with PowerApps so I don't understand what it wants from me.

Hi @cku3732 ,

 

What is the current situation, do similar problems still exist?

 

If it still exists, please provide error message and Flow run history so that we can reproduce similar issues.

Re: Child flow not working

Hi Barry, Yes this is still an issue. There's no flow run history because it wouldn't even let me build it in the first place. Flow checker just says 'Update the child flow for action 'Run_a_Child_Flow' to not use 'run-only user' connections. Only my child flow is not a manual trigger flow so it shouldn't be a run-only user connection in the first place and there's no option to update this on the child flow either.

Re: Child flow not working

I've had the same issue the past week and was told to switch the trigger to a manual trigger - which did work. Only to then be told by the same MS operative that the powerapps trigger should also work. I think a recent update broke it. 

 

Anyway, try the manual trigger instead of the powerapps trigger on your child flow. It worked for me.

Re: Child flow not working

I was doing exactly what that second link showed but in the past two weeks we saw the same symptoms as posted by the OP, MS support checked it out and told me to use the manual trigger instead.
