Hi @spdan,


I just tested to edit my flows in my environment and I cannot seem to reproduce your issue. My flow could be edited and updated successfully. 


1. Is this happening to all your flow? Please try to create a new one to test.

2. Please change another environment to test.

3. First clear cache in IE and then try to edit again.

4. Change another browser/pc to test.

Hi I did the same. Still I am getting the same error. and Yes this is happening with all my flows.


1. I reset my IE setting to default

2. Clear history and cache of IE

3. Open flow in IE

4. Just open the flow in Edit mode 

5. Hit the Save/Update flow button

6. Received the same error again.

Another update.


1. Create another flow with only two activity/step

2. Save that workflow

3. Open that workflow in Edit mode

4. Hit the update flow button

5. Error "Client request aborted" Appear again.

I am also getting the same issue. Does any one have any idea about this.

I guess noboady has answer for this thread.

Hi @spdan,


Are you still getting this issue? I will try to report this to the pg if so.

I have same problem for about month. I tried everything what do you recommended - different browsers, clean cache etc. I even tried different tenants with same result (three tenants tested). There is only one thing that works and it's mobile application. So my workaround is VM Android tablet with Microsoft Flow app installed but this is really unconfortable...

I am getting this too in all of my Flows.  Any resolution?

I am also facing the Same Problem for all my flows.


Please update if any resolutions

I have been having the same issue for about a month. Does anyone have a resolution? Whenever I need to make one small change I have to completely recreate the flow which wastes a lot of time. Thanks in advance.

In my case the problem was caused by firewall settings of my client in combination with Azure AD Connect.

Somehow the Save Request sends data through the clients infrastructure (Authentication) that was blocked by a firewall. Hence, the save operation failed.


The IT department of my client fixed that by identifying the blocked request. And then unblocking it.

Hope that helps.



This was exactly the reason for me. When I switched from the corporate WiFi to my mobile connection, the error no longer occurred.

It could be because of some the service being down / not accessible. We got the same error for some of the users, because of services being blocked from their machine.
