[ASK] Flow Request API from python

Dear All,


right now im trying to trigger a flow from a python code (in jupyter):

Request > Office 364 send an email > Response


As per now, the flow has been created successfully and tested both using built in tester and PostMan


However, when im trying to use the code in python (using built in code generator by PostMan), i have this error :


{"error":{"code":"AuthorizationFailed","message":"You do not have permissions to perform action 'run' on scope '/triggers/manual/paths/'. Verify you are making the request with the appropriate HTTP method. See for details."}}


Am i missing something? the request from PostMan in python as below (some parts are redacted) :


import requests


querystring = {"api-version":"2016-06-01","sp":"%2Ftriggers%2Fmanual%2Frun","sv":"1.0","sig":"SIGNATURE_FROM_FLOW_IN_HERE_REDACTED"}

payload = "{\r\n \"emailSubjectAA\": \"HEHEHE\",\r\n \"emailBodyAA\": \"HOHOHO\"\r\n}"
headers = {
'Content-Type': "application/json",
'User-Agent': "PostmanRuntime/7.17.1",
'Accept': "*/*",
'Cache-Control': "no-cache",
'Accept-Encoding': "gzip, deflate",
'Content-Length': "62",
'Connection': "keep-alive",
'cache-control': "no-cache"

response = requests.request("POST", url, data=payload, headers=headers, params=querystring)



Thank you

Re: [ASK] Flow Request API from python


Hi @Dhito ,


Could you provide the flow configuration and run history?

From the error message, it seems that there is a problem with identity authentication, and there is no corresponding permission to perform related operations.
