Flow cannot find my SharePoint site if the URL is a managed path (government cloud)

In SharePoint Online I had created a new site  using the modern admin center which creates all sites as managed paths. The URL we will say was I am trying to set up the powerapp for “Help Desk”. So I had created a custom list with all of my metadata columns that I need. I stood up the powerapp without a problem. My issue is where FLOW comes in to play.  When entering the URL for my site, my site does not show up in the drop down list. I have also tried typing it in manually and copy and pasting it in as well. I get the same result every time. It says “We are unable to find the site address. Please try selecting a site address from the dropdown”. Its not just the site that I have created either. It is any site that is a managed path. Doesn’t matter if its /sites or /teams.  However if I type a site in that is not a managed path such as or then it can find and connect to those type of sites just fine. I will mention that I am in the government cloud so I am unsure if there is a limitation at this point that I am unaware of that could be causing this. I have a personal tenant I use as a development environment and I do not have this issue but again that is in the commercial cloud.

You should be able to do this from a pubsec tenant. Insure that you are logged in to the correct tenant on the actions/triggers that call the SharePoint site by clicking the ellipsis on the step and verifying the pubsec tenant account under My connections (green box):


Also, make sure you are utilizing the correct pubsec Flow environment, by clicking your name in the top-right of the Flow page, and verifying the checkmark is next to the the correct Environment: FlowEnvironmentSelect.png

If that doesn't work, you may try re-adding your credentials in the Flow connector for SharePoint in the Data > Connections page:Connections.png

You can Delete and re-add, or you can select Switch account: OneNoteConnectionRefresh.png



NOTE: Deleting and/or switching your accounts for the connector will not break existing Flows using that connector.

Yes I am logged into the correct tennant. We only have one tennant to log into to begin with. Also we are not on a pubsec tennant. We are in the goernment community cloud (GCC)
