Cannot connect to Sharepoint Online. (Is there a site collection setting required?)

We recently migrated to Sharepoint online.

I was excited at the prospect of useing flow to solve an issue that was introduced after migrating to Sharepoint online.

I was going to attempt to have an email to my outlook online account generate an item in a sharepoint list.

Individually I can log into both services rather seemlessly. But when I attempt to connect ot a list (Neither the root site nor my subsite show up in the drop) when I type in the URL it returns an auth failure.

I am trying to determin if this is something within my control or if it is a restriction we've applied on our instance.

 

Thanks for any help.

Magic,  I am now able to connect to both and successfully built the flow. Tomorrow I will know if it worked.

Same here.  This worked yesterday.  I get "Could not retrieve values. Failed to fetch: Site url"

 

BTW - I can't connect to Google Sheets.  OneDrive Personal and others.  I get "failed to fetch".

Hi I_like_PI,

 

Just tested, I can connect to my SharePoint online lists without any problem:

I saw some other post stating the same issue before. I think there might be some updates in the background of flow earlier that causes this issue. Please try again now.

 

Regards,

Okay, so where is the solution?  There is no information here other than it didn't work, and now it does.

 

Microsoft: Please post the solution

Re: Cannot connect to Sharepoint Online. (Is there a site collection setting required?)

I don't think there really was one. This was early in the implementation and there were a lot of moving parts. In the back end both MS and is the company I work for were making modifications. I dont know if someone on my side hadn't gotten to a permissioning step or if MS fixed some kind of backend issue. I never marked it solved for the same reason you are asking, my only solution was that the next day it worked. As I hadn't contacted our support over it I am unaware of any activity on our side, but I can't discount it either.

 

Sorry for the limited info. 

I didn't want to mark this solved because there really was no instruction on what to do and so I didn't want someone coming to this post thinking there was a TS guide to a solution.
