Create Flow action fails when re-creating a flow with a child flow

Hi All,


I have run into an issue while building out my new flow that I would like some guidance on.


Background: We are trying to setup a simple automated process that would allow our users to move their email based approvals process to SharePoint. As part of that, I have created a site template that deploys list and libraries that the users can use on their site. The final action in the site script also triggers my instant flow with a HTTP request trigger.


This builder flow is then meant to replicate a bunch of flows that I have setup inside a solution on the same Power platform environment for the new user site. I also have child flows inside the solution. 


I am able to update the Flow definition to work with the new Site URL (taken from the trigger) and Library/List GUID (all other inputs to Create flow look good). However, the Create Flow action fails with the following error:


BadRequest: code":"ChildFlowsUnsupportedForNonSolutionFlows","message":"Child Flows is only supported for Flows stored in a solution


Is there a way to resolve this? Can we use the Create flow action to re-create a flow if that flow calls child flows?
