Flow does not work inside SharePoint Online

I have a flow that triggers via "manually trigger" and takes input from the user. These inputs/variables is then used to create and populate a word document and then saved in a folder in SharePoint. It works inside of the flow dashboard but I want it to work inside SharePoint Online.

I used this guide: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/dev/declarative-customization/column-formatting#create-a...

to create a button in my list that triggers/should trigger my flow via its unique ID. However, when I click the button to call the flow, I get this error message:

" message: "Failed to parse invoker connections from trigger 'manual' outputs. Exception: Could not find property 'headers.X-MS-APIM-Tokens' in the trigger outputs. Workflow has connection references '["shared_wordonlinebusiness","shared_sharepointonline"]' with invoker runtime source." "

 

Any idea why, and how it can be solved?

Hi @Akourt, if you want to use a button in a SharePoint list to trigger a flow you need to use the "For a selected item" SharePoint trigger.
