Error with switching Flow to post a message in Teams from a User to Flow Bot

Hi, I have this flow that has been working for my team to post a message in one of our Teams channels periodically. I wanted to switch this to using the Flow Bot instead of my account. It is giving me the following error:


"error": {
"code": "InstallFlowTeamsAppRequestFailed",
"message": "Failed to install the Power Automate app in Microsoft Teams for team with ID '62763827-b024-4167-b944-bb92d7dd669a'. Please try adding the Power Automate app to this team directly from the Microsoft Teams client. Error details: '{\"error\":{\"code\":\"Forbidden\",\"message\":\"User doesn't have permission to Install App\",\"innerError\":{\"message\":\"User doesn't have permission to Install App\",\"code\":\"AccessDenied\",\"innerError\":{},\"date\":\"2022-08-26T16:23:17\",\"request-id\":\"060e7090-3c10-457c-82f4-9b8f105dea3f\",\"client-request-id\":\"5888fe0a-2b97-4143-97f2-f7c0cc85de96\"}}}'"



I'm not sure why this error is happening. All that I did was change the [Post as] section of the 'Post message in a chat or channel' card to Flow Bot from User. I searched online and found others posting similar issues, but could not find any answers.


Any help would be appreciated.

Maybe you need to add the power automate app to the team? I'm running into this also.
