The credentials for this connection do not have access to '', please try using a different location or account.

Hello All,

 

I am trying to connect file system Action using my credentials since i have access to this folder. but every time i run flow it show below error

"The credentials for this connection do not have access to '', please try using a different location or account." . I have checked my credentials even re created the flow. but nothing is working.

 i tried everything , Checking domain username, delete and creating new connection , Even i tried with Admin Account but the error is same. 

few days back it was working fine , then i shifted my gateway from my local computer to server after that it stopped. Please advise below is my flow.

I've not used the File System connector or the on-premise gateway before, but this looks like an authentication issue. After setting up the on-premise data gateway on my local computer I created a simple flow to list files on my local computer (C:\FileSystemConnector).  The connection settings I would need to use will be my organisation's AD user login credentials (domain\username) - if this was an AD domain joined computer - and I was logged on with my AD username and password. However, I am using the on-premise data gateway on my personal computer which is not AD joined - so I used my local credentials for the File System connection.

I used the whoami command at the command prompt to get the local computer name and logged in username. I put those details into the connection settings:

If you login to your computer using a Microsoft account (outlook.com, live.com etc) you can also enter those details. See also: Microsoft Power Automate: Invalid Connection Credentials

If the credentials are incorrect, I see:

hello @ekarim2020 , First of all i would really appreciate your efforts and time you took to beautifully explained this issue , As per your test and explanation i tried something ,  and that worked for me finally after struggling one week.

I have create a new gateway on my local system from where i am accessing the folder , so i believe if you are using file system connection you can only use the gateway which is installed in your local system , i dont know why this dependency is only on file system connection , but that's how it worked for me.

 

Thank you so much again for the help and contribution to the community🙂
