Parent flow calling child flow

I have a parent flow which is triggered from the Powerapps and at the end of that flow I am running a child flow which also uses powerapps as a trigger point so in the child flow i'm getting some data from the SharePoint and at the end I added the "Respond to powerapps" action. but I'm getting an error in my parent during the call of child flow 


Can anyone tell me how to resolve it. Child flow trigger point is also powerapps so there is no run only user setting available there @RezaDorrani @Pstork1 @Paulie78

Hello @Tourist 


You will need to Navigate back to your ‘Child‘ Flow on the management screen, click on ‘Edit‘ for the ‘Run only users‘.




  • In the ‘Run only users‘ section select the Connection from the drop down.



  • Navigate back to you Main Flow, and now you should not see the Error about ‘Run a child Flow‘.  All done! It’s now time to test our Solution.

You can find more details in blog -

@CFernandes but my child flow's trigger is also Powerapps so there is no Run only users section Available

The child flow trigger should be a manual Power Automate trigger, not a Power Apps trigger.  Here's a simple child flow I use in one of my projects. You can't use the Power Apps trigger in the Child flow when you are triggering it from a flow.
