Lots of ConfigurationNeeded, "Parameter value missing." connection errors



I'm working to set up a flow that will check daily to see if there are any connections with errors that need to be refreshed.  I've been using this blog post as a guide.


When I run the flow, however, I'm getting a LOT of connections that are displaying errors.


The strange thing is that there seem to be two types of connections that are returned by the Power Apps for Makers 'Get Connections' action.  One are the same connections you would see if you went to Data > Connections in your sidebar.  These are connections that are often used by many different flows.


The second type of connections that are returned seem to be linked to a specific workflow.  They include a workflowName, workflowPath, workflowEndpoint, etc.  Plus, the displayName value is the name of a workflow, not of a connection.


All of my errors are happening in the second type of connection - the Workflow type.  They are all the same - the error is ConfigurationNeeded, and the error message is 'Parameter value missing.'  


Here's the kicker, though - all of these workflows have already been deleted.  In some cases they were deleted months and months ago.


Does anyone know how these connections are supposed to work?  Why am I seeing connection errors from flows that have been deleted?  How do I get rid of those connections so they don't clog up my error-sniffing flow?


Thanks for any insight you can provide.
