Scheduled flow to resubmit a flow run

We have a use case where we have a Record responses flow to a sharepoint list for a MS Form.  The challenge is that the form may not be used within 3 months so the flow is turned off.

 

My thought was to create a scheduled flow to resubmit a flow run

However, I keep getting the error Request to Azure Resource Manager failed with error: '{"error":{"code":"BadRequest","message":"The provided workflow trigger history name is not valid."}}'.

Sorry @ScottShearer   I see now that there was a link to  solution.  However I found a simpler solution, a scheduled flow with a simple  Turn on Flow action works!  Thanks!

I believe the issue is that the Flow did not run and as a result, the run cannot be resubmitted.

I suggest periodically running the "Turn on Flow" action.  The action will succeed even of the Flow is not turned off.

Here is another way (and probably better) to approach this issue.

@ScottShearer Thanks for the quick response.  I did confirm I had a successful run on the Record Responses flow.  I do not see an option in the Power Automate Management for a way to turn on a flow, can you elaborate on this suggestion?

I'm glad that you got it working - that was what I had suggested - using the "turn on Flow" action.
