Teams - Post message as the Flow Bot not working

I want to post message on Teams when a new Task is created in Planner.

I am able to do that using a Flow, but the problem is, it posts as my own user.


For Teams action, I have two options:

  1. Post a message
  2. Post a message as the Flow bot to a channel

The second option keeps throwing 404 error.


  "error": {
    "code": "BotRequestFailed",
    "message": "Request to the Bot framework failed with error: '{\"error\":{\"code\":\"BadArgument\",\"message\":\"Unknown cloud 'in-client-ss.msg'\"}}'."

Hi ,


sometimes , not always , I have this problem : {"error":{"code":"BotDisabledByAdmin","message":"The tenant admin disabled this bot"}}'.'.

Have you an idea ?




I am also getting the same error message today (27/04/20). Overnight no changes made. Does anyone know where it would even be possible to disable the flow bot as admin?


This is typically customer config-driven, but given the 3 reports this morning we have opened an investigation with the Bot Framework team to understand what is happening.


Looks like this was a transient outage in Teams / Bot Framework last night primarily impacting Europe. The issue appears to have been fully resolved as of about 3 hours ago.


Like I mentioned before, this is *typically* caused by customer config (app allow/block lists) preventing the Flow bot from interacting with Teams.


Thanks @dblyth for investigating however, I still have the same issue. I will test again first thing in the morning and hope it has been resolved. 


There's a fairly low volume of these at all times due to tenants that have the Teams app policies set to block the Flow / Power Automate app, which are documented here:


If you are still seeing this tomorrow feel free to message me separately and I can probably take a look.


I have cross verified the teams admin center and all the option are open. Still we are getting the following message


Error Code: BotDisabledByAdmin, Error Message: The tenant admin disabled this bot, Status Code: Forbidden, ReasonPhrase: Forbidden


Any update on this!!


All -- I can't investigate anything with out actual flow / environment / tenant details. If you don't want to share, you need to email me. Same alias @


At the moment work fine ,




Hi, as I am developing a flow in my test tenant, prior to shipping this to our actual tenant, I do not seem to see the result of the flow appearing in my Teams channel. Posting as the user associated with the connection in flow seems to work. Are we experiencing problems in the back end again? Or am I doing something wrong? Policies in my tenant allow all apps to be run, flow app is setup in the Teams site as a bot.


And offcourse I forgot to check the obvious... Status of the flow was set to "Off".... Sorry for the confusion!

Received this error today


Request to the Bot framework failed with error: '{"error":{"code":"BotDisabledByAdmin","message":"The tenant admin disabled this bot"}}'.


Is this related to the current issues with Teams?




@hcristiano there are no known issues with Teams currently that would cause this.
