Instagram to Twitter error

I am a new Flow user, trying to use the flow that automatically tweets Instagram posts to Twitter. I am getting the error Invalid Template. Unable to process template language expressions in action 'Post a new tweet' inputs at line '1' and column '2167': The template language expression 'triggerBody()['caption']['text']' cannot be evaluated because property 'text' cannot be selected.

I think it's because I had no caption? But how do I edit this to make that work?

Re: Instagram to Twitter error

Hi @caresrg,

 

The error message should be the part you choose has something misconfigured.

Would you please share more details about the Flow configuration, better with a screenshot?

Further, per my testing, I don't think the Instagram trigger could post the image successfully to the Twitter.

For Now, I can't find a proper way to get the Media data from the instagram to meet the Media type with the Tiwtter Post a tweet action.

If it is allowed, you could consider add the Image URL and the caption Text together with the Text Input, this would make it work.

Re: Instagram to Twitter error

Here are some screenshots. I really don't know enough to make my own flows; I just used a template that was there. It does work when I provide a caption. It does not work when there is no caption.

Re: Instagram to Twitter error

I'm in the same boat. Would really like this to work when then Instagram post does not have a caption, however it fails if so. Anyone have any idea how to fix this?
