Connection issue?



In the last few days, I've experienced failures in Flows from Forms into email and Teams. On each occasion it has been a connection issue within Office 365. Do you know if Office 365 connections time out after a set time and need to be refreshed? Has there been a change behind the scenes that might mean I need to re-build the Flows - or should they be stable again now that I have refreshed the account connection?

Having reconnected in one Flow, it looks as though all Flows are now connecting properly. So I hope the issue is resolved.

Re: Connection issue?

@AliB :

My understanding is that connections time out after a period of time (30 days I believe) if not used.  However, I understand that Flow, behind the scenes, actually touches each connection periodically in order to prevent timeout issues.

So, you should not see connection issues because of a timeout - there is likely another factor causing your issues.
