Flow error when my App goes online and tries to transfer the data.

Hi guys,

 

I just implemented the offline capability in my app and while testing it I faced an error when the app tries to transfer the data to flow
Short overview of the app:

If an internet connection is established, transfer the data to flow (works fine)
If there is no connection established, put the data in a temporary collection. 
If the status of the internet connection changes, check if the temporary collection is empty, if it's not empty, transfer the data to flow (works fine)

Now the problem: When I close Power Apps and put my mobile device into flight mode I am able to execute the app, so far so good. I can make my inputs and when I am trying to transfer it, the data is stored in a temporary collection,
BUT: If I then switch my mobile device to online mode my app - as I want the app to do - tries to transfer the data to flow (because the connection.conneted status changes)
I get the error message <flowname>: For this service is no connection configured 
Obviously my app doesnt initialize the flow when it's started offline and because of that it's not able to transfer the data properly.
This problem also happens when I start the app offline and switch it to online before executing the flow...

Is there a possibility to "refresh" the flow connection?
Any help?

Edit: It seems like that error only occurs for users of the app, if I'm testing it with the owner's account on the mobile device it somehow works, but if I test it with an user account (who are working on test licences at the moment) it doesn't work...

Thanks in advance!

Greetings

Julian

Hi @julianhoewel_95 ,

 

You cannot refresh the connections inside flow, but you can rerun the flow after you are online. You can use a formula like this:

If(Connection.Connected,Flow.Run(...),false)

 

Also, try to vote one below idea:
