Wait For Approval Failing due to approvalName Null

I have an approval proccess which starts with a create approval:

and later in my flow I have a wait for approval:

When I run my flow, however, I get the error:

 

Approval fail.png

 

I understand that there is some value it is looking for called approvalName but I have no idea where that comes from.

 

It isn't a field in the Create Approval controll so I am a bit confused as to what is missing.

Hey turns out I am the fool. failed to put the "Create approval" in the right leg of a conditional earlier in the flow so there was nothing for it to find.

 

Thanks anyway

@Lewkir - Is the value given in the assigned to within create Approval correct? In the flow run, what do you see in assign to field?
