InvalidPaginationPolicy when switching Flow from Manually trigger a flow to Recurrence

I have a flow that I have been developing that manipulates many items between an Excel Workbook and several SharePoint Lists. I was testing the Flow using the trigger "Manually trigger a flow". Everything is working great and I switched the Trigger to "Recurrence". Now the flow will not save and gives the error:


Flow save failed with code 'InvalidPaginationPolicy' and message 'The pagination policy of workflow run action 'Get_items' of type 'OpenApiConnection' at line '1' and column '948' is not valid. The value specified for property 'minimumItemsCount' exceeds the maximum allowed. Actual: '30000'. Maximum: '5000'.'.


I have flipped the trigger back to "Manually trigger a flow" and things save and work fine again.


I created a small flow that just runs and executes a SharePoint "Get Items" with Top count: 5000 and Pagination turned on and set to 30000. If the Trigger is "Manually trigger a flow", then the flow save fine. Changing to "Recurrence" causes the same "InvalidPaginationPolicy" error.


Does anyone know if this is a licensing issue? Or a bug? And if it is a bug, is the bug that it allows it with "Manually trigger a flow" or that it doesn't allows it with "Recurrence"?


To get around this, I have put everything in a Solution. I have a simple Parent Flow with a Recurrence trigger that launches the main flow as a Child flow.
