Copying/Pasting Error Message

Hi.

 

I am excited to use this feature.  I have a repeatable processes that i tried to copy but i get the error "Failed to find XXXXXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXXXXXX (<-- guid) in definition".

 

I tried to copy only one trigger and also the conditional statements that have multiple and still receive the same error.

 

What can i be missing?!?!?

 

Thank you for your help.

Hi @Misa ,

 

Thank you for feedback, I have tested it and find the same issue you mentioned when I add an action from the clipboard into a Switch action branch.

Copy action is currently in the preview phase, and I've tested some scenarios on my side and found that this happens only if you add replicated action in Switch Action, and maybe in other scenarios as well.

The suggestion is that if a similar issue occurs, you can manually create.

Hi @Misa 

 

Currently copying triggers is not supported in flow. You can only copy actions. Can you please share a screenshot of the error facing? 

 

This could be a caching issue too. Can you try loggin out of the current session, close the current window, start a fresh session and see if you continue to face the same issue? You might want to try in different browsers too. 

 

Hope this Helps!

Re: Copying/Pasting Error Message

Hi!

 

I did find that the error also happens with Condition statements and single actions.  

 

The workflow is fairly large so i am really trying to take advantage of the new feature Smiley Very Happy .
