Error "Cannot read property 'exists' of Null" when adding a new action on an already existing Flow

Hi all

I have an already existing Flow, just some minutes ago I opened it to add a new action block, but I can't since Flow editor is showing the following error:

FlowCannotReadPropertyExistsOfNull.png

 

It's a bit difficult for me to share screenshots of the flow logic since it is a bit complex (more than 10 action blocks, 2 conditions, 1 foreach); if you find it valuable I can export it and share the .zip file instead

 

Thank you in advance!





If anyone is trying to help you with an issue, the fastest way to say thanks is by kudoing. Be grateful, Thumbs up!

Proud to be a Flownaut!

Re: Error "Cannot read property 'exists' of Null" when adding a new action on an already e

I have the same issue.  I'm trying to add new actions to my flow and it keeps telling me "Cannot read property 'exists" of null".

 

I tried to save my flow and restart, but it isn't going away. Any other ideas?

Hi @Anonymous, @efialttes and @ch2017

 

I did a lot of tests and discover that the problem is a cache - simple press CTRL + SHIFT + R and it workarounds the problem.

 

We are waiting for a fix

Hi all,

 

Apologize for the current situation.

This is a known issue, and a fix is being published this week.

 

Edit:

To workaround this, please take a try to refresh the current editing page, which should be able to get the Add new Action work.

 

Regards,

Michael

I hope this is resolves sooner rather than later as it's hard to finish a flow when you cannot edit it. Guess the customer just have to be patient.

Thanks,
