Planner Flow, no Powerapp: Could not retrieve values. Insufficient privileges to complete the operation

I try to use Flows to create a list of Planner tasks.

I am not using PowerApps, I just want to trigger the flow manually from the portal from time to time.


When I use a predefined flow template (i.e. "Post messages to Microsoft Teams when a new task is created in Planner"), I can select the "Plan Id" in the Flow GUI. It will show all my available plans.


When I create a new flow and not use any template, selecting Planner and then "List tasks", I am asked for the "Group Id" and the "Plan Id". However, now the pulldown menu is not populated with my existing Plans. 


Instead I get "Could not retrieve values. Insufficient privileges to complete the operation".

Do I miss something here?

How do I teach Planner or Flows to find the Group Id's and the Plan Id's?

Hi @DanHu 



The lists tasks action only lists the tasks for a particular group

I believe it only lists the plans where you are the group/team owner

I am the owner/creator of all plans..


Other example below: Left side, I use a template, right side I try to recreate the same template from scratch..



Hi @DanHu ,


If you use the trigger "When a new task is created" created by yourself, but can't extract the Group Id and Plan Id, you can input them manually. Please have a reference as below:Annotation 2019-08-07 170316.png




By the way, you can get the Group Id and Plan Id through entering plan task board, and get them in the link:Annotation 2019-08-07 171011.png

While manually looking for a Plan Id and a Group Id is a workaround, the dropdowns should, in my opinion, show Group Id values automatically. I'm also struggling with these new Planner triggers.

Check out my Project Operations and Power Automate blog at:

@v-litu-msft , thanks, that helped. 


Yet, I agree with @anttipajunen . The dropdowns should show the Group Id's and the available Plan Id's. 


@v-litu-msft, what you pointed out is a good workaround. But can you confirm that the dropdowns should work? And can you point us to a final solution that works as expected (without having to use yor workaround)?

Or is this a bug?





Hi @DanHu  @anttipajunen  @v-litu-msft 


The dropdowns do work in 1 of my tenants but not in the other

Has to be some sort of bug

What is strange: When I use one of the templates, the dropdown always works.

When I create a flow from scratch, the dropdown never works.

Can you confirm?

I am also seeing this issue.


If i manually create a flow to create a planner task on a recurring monthly basis i cannot automatically populate the Group ID or Plan ID.


When i try to do the same thing using a template flow, both of these dropdowns populate automatically.


Is there some kind of weird permissions thing or can it just not connect to the Office 365 groups correctly?

@ATPolar thanks for confirming the same issue.


I'm hoping that @v-litu-msft could help with an explanation.




I have same problem.
I think that this problem occurs at sign-in as Company Administrator.


Is this new limitations?

The only thing I've noticed is that when comparing the Flow code (found via the "Peek code" option under the Planner action menu) there are some differences around the connection/authentication pieces.. but unfortunately the "peek code" is read-only.

I am having this exact same issue: Templates work, but create-your-own does not. 


I am now recieving an error on the template flows. 

"You do not have the required permissions to access this item."

Same Issue here as well!  We really need a solution to this!
