ERROR IN FLOW WHEN I CREATE AN APPROVAL ACTION

Hi guys,

I am currently working on a laptop gate pass for my place of work. I am using Power Apps to display the user and laptop details for the user to submit their request for a laptop gate pass.

 

I have a Power Apps trigger in my Flow, then I create the item in SharePoint list and add an Approval step for the newly created request/item, after the request has been approved I want to generate a PDF as the laptop gate pass and attach this to an email notification back to the user.


However when I add an Approval step I get the error below, please help me on how to fix this.

 

 

InvalidTemplate. Unable to process template language expressions in action 'Start_an_approval' inputs at line '1' and column '2588': 'The template language expression 'json(decodeBase64(triggerOutputs().headers['X-MS-APIM-Tokens']))['$connections']['shared_approvals']['connectionId']' cannot be evaluated because property 'shared_approvals' doesn't exist, available properties are 'shared_sharepointonline, shared_onedriveforbusiness'. Please see https://aka.ms/logicexpressions for usage details.'.

 

Regards,

Silas

Hi @SilasCryo,

I think the last bullet on the above section should work.

When you import the Flow to PowerApps there is a current bug (that I don’t think has been fixed yet) that occurs when you add a new connection to your Flow.

All you have to do to resolve it is to Save the Flow as a new Flow, with a new name, then remove the call to it from PowerApps and the association to it from the PowerApps form and add a call to the news flow and it should start working.... until you add another new connection to the Flow and then you’ll have to re-add it again.

@SilasCyro:

Can you post a screen shot of your Flow?  That will make it much easier to assist.

Hi @SilasCyro,

 

You could try to solve your problem using the following methods:

  • If you are using and configuring this Flow in PowerApps portal, you could try to open the Flow in MS Flow portal and re-run Flow to check if the issue still exists.
  • Close this page,  refresh the page, then reopen MS Flow and run Flow.
  • Or export the entire Flow, then re-import as a new Flow, configure all connections, then run Flow and check if the problem still exists.

Hi @MarkStokes@v-bacao-msft@ScottShearer

 

I followed the steps and also re-configure the whole flow again and it worked well. Thanks so much for the support and ideas shared.

Silas
