PowerApp trying to remove reference in connection configuration settings for non existing Flows that are causing Permission request issues



One of my powerapps is most probably corrupt as am seeing references to Flows that are non existing anymore. I have removed all code that was referencing any flow but problem persists.


So far:

1) I have removed All refernces from Data left Pane, removed all buttons that were associated with a flow but problem persists.

2) Have later added all offending Flows and removed again with the intention that Flows with same name would be finally deleted completely, but again to no avail.

3) Tried to export the package but failed due to 'Could not find connection 'shared......'


Have read in this community that it is a bug in PowerApps. My concern is that users cannot use the app as it will ask for permissions for a component, hereby Encodian (which account was also removed), but The Allow option Disabled. 


Your help much appreciated!

I'm experiencing the same issue. I have flows that no longer exist still being associated to my power apps. I have done all the steps you have as well (removed everything, saved, closed, published, etc) and still the flows are showing as connected when they are definitely not. I cannot export the package because of this.

Sometimes this happens to be an issue with browser caching. Have you tried to open the app in another browser and redo all your steps?
