bug not allowing me to edit app

I created a new powerapp, saved then left the session open. On coming back the session had timed out so I clicked 'resume this session'. Something went wrong and the app wouldn't allow me to edit it. I also tried to edit from the app library, and the same thing happens. 

I can open the app fine in 'run' mode, just not edit. 

So I created a new app. Saved it a bunch of times. the same thing has happened.


When I try to edit it first takes me to this 


when I click the back arrow I get this


I have tried restoring previous versions, and exporting and re-importing as a new app, closing all browsers, restarting, deleting cache, and sharing with another user on a different computer -All exactly the same.


Really frustrating as I've spent nearly 2 days building the same app twice, for both to stop working.

Hi @nick9one1 

That's strange and it isn't expected behaviour.

This is possibly a long shot, but I'd try rolling back your authoring version to an earlier version through the Account menu. Maybe you'll have more success opening your app with an earlier version.

Thanks for the suggestions. I tried to change the authoring version, applied it but now I only see the one version?


not sure whats happened there. 

I've exported the app here. Maybe someone else can try it?!AgN3RlWvEHCokYJTi7EX8qOnX8u-dw?e=ssDqOD

Hi @nick9one1 

I've tried opening the app but unfortunately, I get the same issue as you do with it not opening.

It's strange because I can't see anything unusual about this app. It seems to be a straightforward app that connects to an-prem SQL Server, with PowerBI integration and a single component.

I think that there may be something corrupt in this app. I would suggest that you raise a support ticket through the link beneath. This might be the easiest way to resolve this problem.
