Adding query parameter to custom connector breaks existing steps in flow

I created a custom connector. It had no query parameters. I created a new flow and used my custom connector in a step. It worked.

 

I later added a query parameter (with a visibility of "internal"). I tested the connector in the connector designer. It worked.

 

I ran my flow again, and the step failed.

 

To fix this, I had to create a new flow that used my custom connector, export both flows, and then definition.json for both. I found that the new flow had my query parameters copied into it, and the old flow did not. I corrected this in the JSON, imported, and now my flow works.

 

It seems that no check is being done to see if a connector has been updated or is missing a required value (though, in this case, a default value is already provided on the connector, and it should have been used and probably shouldn't also have to be defined on the flow).

Re: Adding query parameter to custom connector breaks existing steps in flow

Hi @passenger19,

The user @JamesM has faced similar issue with you, please check the response within the following thread:

https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/General-Discussion/Custom-connector-changes-not-reflected-in-Pow...

It seems that this is a known issue within custom connector in PowerApps currently.

Currently, there is no way to check if a custom connector has been updated or is missing a required value within PowerApps.

If you would like this feature to be added in PowerApps, please submit an idea to PowerApps Ideas Forum:
