Removing useless connections

Odd question. I have a app that used to use two Flows. One involves sending a email via Hotmail and one a email via Email Notification (powerapps@microsoft.com).

 

I've since then removed any reference to these Flows from my app, deleted the Flows themselves and replaced both with a Flow that sends a email via Gmail. I also went into Connection and deleted these connections. Oddly - I notice when the warning message pops up to say "these apps are still using this connection" - I notice it still says my original app is using it... Even though it isn't and the Flow is deleted. Naturally... When I delete these connections and restart my app, Powerapps forces me to add the connections again before the app can run because it thinks the connections are needed.

As mentioned before, I have deleted all code referencing the Flow with the Hotmail and Email Notification connection + completely deleted both of these Flows too in order to make sure they don't exist. However... PowerApps still thinks the connections are needed and forces me to readd before I can run the app. How do I stop this from happening?

Re: Removing useless connections

Just got something to work, maybe it will help you. in you app add a new screen then insert a data table. Then add a new connection. In the new connection list you will see all of the connections for the app and you can remove them for that specific app.

Re: Removing useless connections

Hi @Tezz233,

 

Thanks for the feedabck.

I think your issue here should be similar to the issue described in the following thread:

https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Creating-Apps/Clearing-Flows-from-a-Powerapp/m-p/70493/highlight...

 

We have feedbacks submitted on that already, and currently there is no updates could be shared.

 

Regards,

Michael
