Dynamics 365 CDS Connector issue in Power Automate

I have a created a flow for a PowerApps Canvas App which I was trying to test initially by manually triggering it within the Flow test window itself by providing a sample input. This flow inturn connects to Dynamics 365 via the CDS connector and tries to invoke an Action.


However, it's been repeatedly failing with the below error. Is there anyway to overcome this issue?

Failed to parse invoker connections from trigger 'manual' outputs. Exception: Could not find any valid connection for connection reference name 'shared_commondataserviceforapps' in APIM tokens header.


This error is within the test window itself. Haven't been able to try this from PowerApps yet as I'm currently stuck with this issue.



Note: This authorization error is only occurring when creating the flow using 'Power Apps flow template'. This error is not coming up when the flow is created using other templates e.,g. Instant flow on button click.


Hello @SainathReddyP 


What is happening is this:


When you use the test previous run, the run that you choose, will only use connections from that run. Meaning if you added a new connection you cannot use previous run to test it. As the new connector technically does not exist.


you have to trigger normally first. Than you can use previous run test.
