I have a flow (several actually) where I need to take the data and post it to an external site. You can see how I have it set up here:
It posts the data to the external site but the flow itself is always marked as "failed" as you can see here:
After so many "failed" run the flow is automatically disabled which I don't want happening. What am I doing wrong? Thank you in advance for any help!
Solved! Go to Solution.
@CFernandes It seems to work ok in ARC:
The specific error in flow says: Http request failed: 'The character set provided in ContentType is invalid. Cannot read content as string using an invalid character set.'.
This is what I have in there:
@ExtremeLeadProg Thanks for checking.
It seems to be a BUG. Please review the thread https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/General-Power-Automate/Errors-setting-up-an-HTTP-Request-flow/m-...
@CFernandes Does that bug apply here? That is talking about an "HTTP request" trigger. I am talking about an "HTTP" post action. Maybe it is all tied together somehow?
Maybe I should have posted a screenshot of the entire flow. As you can see here it is triggered by a "HTTP request" but it posts a row into a google sheet, sends a couple emails and then also posts into another system fine ( though I was able to make those work ok by using GET ) and unfortunately where I want to post this data can't use GET:
@CFernandes Sure, thanks for checking, here you go:
Method - Post
Enter Key: Content-Type
Enter Value: application/x-www-form-urlencoded
You can replace body with something like this just to test: CustomFields=Mikefirstname.lastname@example.org&CustomFields=1234567890
Hopefully that is what you were looking for, thanks again.
Howdy @ExtremeLeadProg ,
Just checked with HTTP connector getting the same error.
So I decided to to create a PostMan collection(v1) exported it and tried creating a custom connector( You can refer my blog - https://clavinfernandes.wordpress.com/2019/11/01/soap-custom-connectors-in-microsoft-flow/)
And then used it in the Power Automate I got a response.
The response body I get
border: 1px solid #EFECBA;
font: 11px tahoma;
Let me know if the above helps...
@CFernandes Unfortunately, I do not have access to Windows hosting and this seems like a lot of trouble for something that should just work?
It's just a simple HTTP post, who do we contact to get extra help? I'm new here, is there a real support channel for Flow?
EDIT: I found the support channel and submitted a ticket let's see what they say, thanks for your help so far.
