Flow won't run by Testing to run

When i make a flow for save attachment to Onedrive it wil not run automatic.

If i put the Test button then only run the Flow with the option "use data from office 365 Outlook"

Then the Flow is succesfully.


But when i check the option"I`ll perform the trigger action" then the Flow failed!

How is that possible?

Re: Flow won't run by Testing to run

Hi @frixel .

I haven't had too much cause to use that type of test myself, I tend to use "Use data from previous runs". I run it just once, then do that. Although, I can see from your image there are no previous runs.

I have just tested this my end with a brand new Flow that had no previous runs either and it ran successfully.Capture-362.pngHere is a link to the details on the type of test you are trying to do -


It says: "Let Microsoft Flow trigger the test by using example data that it pulls from the connector. For example, if you use the When a new email arrives trigger, Microsoft Flow automatically gets the most recent email from your inbox and uses that to test your flow."


So, "Microsoft Flow automatically gets the most recent email from your inbox". Is it possible that the most recent Flow doesn't meet the requirements of the Flow and that's why it isn't running?


I am just trying to give you something to go on here ...


Thanks, Alan
