SharePoint Get Item "Enter a valid integer" Error Preventing Save

Normally, I use a Flow as a template to build other Flows automatically. All of a sudden, a technique I have regularly used is now throwing an error.

 

I am using an action, Get item, with the SharePoint Connector. Since the Flow is used as a template, I supply "TemplateSiteID" as the Id for this action. This string is later changed to the appropriate integer value when the Flow properties are imported and manipulated by my Flow Builder.

 

However, I can no longer save my Flow due to this new error.

Is there a way to save a Flow, even though it has errors?

Wow!

What a great idea you got with the template approach!

Did you consider replacing 'TemplateSiteID' and use a number instead?

Or, adding to your template an 'Initialize variable action block' type Integer, assign it a random numeric value (or even 0, since there should be no item with ID 0 on a SP list); then assign the variable to your 'Get item' action block?

 

Not sure if any of these two proposals matches with your expectations

 Great idea!! I am able to Initialize a string, and replace the value with an integer. Just tested and it works great!
