Flow Lifetime validation failed

Hi all, we have designed a flow, tested and it worked like a charm!

 

Basically, it works as an approval process, that forwards to the next agent upon approval, and so on. It does have from 3-5 approvals (depending of the case).

However, we are encountering some problems, some of the runs are reporting problems when the approver actually perform an action on it (when he hit either the Approve or Reject button at the message), it returns:

 

ActionFailed. An action failed. No dependent actions succeeded.
 
And just this week, when we had this new update on the Flow layout (where it shows a left-side menu with the error details), I was able to see the following:
 
{"Message":"Error from ASE:Bad key authorization token: Failed to validate token: IDX10223: Lifetime validation failed. The token is expired.\nValidTo: '05/30/2017 21:29:09'\nCurrent time: '05/30/2017 23:40:29'."}
 
So, when a token is generated (Response Approval Email, from Office 365 service) and one of the approvers takes a long time, does that token expire? Can we set a period for this token? Is there any workaround for this case?
 
thank you,
Allan

Is there any way to know that an update have been rolled out?

Hi @tofsweden,

 

We roll out updates every week. We update the blog with details on new major features, but I do think it would be good if we had weekly patch notes for all the changes.

@TravisB yes I think it would be good for the community. Could happen that the developer team doesn't consider flow lifetime as big 'news' so the update in particular goes unnoticed by the users that needed the function beforehand. 

Hi @TravisB, I just tested and seems that the change for the token was not yet implemented, right?

Hi @AllanMartins,

 

The deployment should complete by the end of the day.

 

Best,

Travis

@TravisB, will it affect current running flows, or just new ones?

 

I did few tests by triggering new flows (about 7 hours ago) and they are still failing in the same way..

 

thanks

@AllanMartins

 

I made a new flow and tested it, it was successful so it works for me. Please create new flow from scratch and try again, btw how does your flow look like?

 

Mine was Read Rows SQL -> Create New Record Common Data Service with 2414 objects, needed around 1 hour and 24 minutes.

@tofsweden, thanks for the heads up - I just created a test flow to check and will confirm in the next 4 hours

Hi @TravisB and @tofsweden,

 

I just a few tests by creating a new flow, and waiting more than the 4 hours, but I still get the token expiration error

 

{"Message":"Error from ASE:Bad key authorization token: Failed to validate token: IDX10223: Lifetime validation failed. The token is expired.\nValidTo: '06/30/2017 13:54:21'\nCurrent time: '06/30/2017 17:46:47'."}

 

Am I missing something?

 

thanks

Now working correctly at my end. Tested a simple approval workflow which I kicked off on Friday evening and I've just selected the "approve" option this morning. no authentication time out.

 

Great work guys!

Cheers

hey @Anonymous

 

Was it a O365-Approval Email or a message using Approvals service?

I did tried on early today using O365-Approval Email and just got the token failure again:

 

 

{"Message":"Error from ASE:Bad key authorization token: Failed to validate token: IDX10223: Lifetime validation failed. The token is expired.\nValidTo: '07/02/2017 21:39:40'\nCurrent time: '07/03/2017 01:11:51'."}

Just a standard approval email workflow. Very simple one I set up triggered by a Flow Button. I triggered it Friday afternoon here and then hit the "approve" option in the email this morning and the workflow continued OK from there.

 

This was a Flow that I created when I first encountered the bug, I wonder if there's a chance it has not been rolled out to New flows?

The one I have is triggered by a PowerApps, I will try with a Flow trigger.

@AllanMartins

Hello, sorry been weekend off.

 

Could be underlying problem? How does your flow schema look like?

Could there be a possibility that PowerApps gets timed out when trying to establish connection to whatever DB you use? Gateway issue?

@tofsweden

 

So, here is the results:

 

Create a simple Flow as: Flow Button (trigger) -> Send Approval Email (O365): it worked when actioned after 6 hours, no problems

 

 

Create another flow: PowerApps (trigger) -> Send Approval Email (O365): it failed with the same token problem...

 

{"Message":"Error from ASE:Bad key authorization token: Failed to validate token: IDX10223: Lifetime validation failed. The token is expired.\nValidTo: '07/03/2017 03:54:10'\nCurrent time: '07/03/2017 09:31:58'."}

I wonder if is there anything different I need to do to get it to work with a PowerApps trigger, but I can say for sure: that is the only hold up I have for now. 🙂

 

Hi,

 

So, I did some new tests today, still, no luck. However, I was able to confirm that Flows that uses PowerApps as a Trigger keep with the 4 hours validation for the Token. Old or New flows presents the same behaviour.

I didn't have same flow schema as you do, can't help you. maybe pinging @TravisB will help?

 

All luck to your work @AllanMartins godspeed!

Hi @AllanMartins,

 

Sorry about the confusion! For security reasons, our token management is handled by another team so it's easy to get wires crossed when coordinating deployments.

 

I just tried this in our US region and it's working fine for me - can you try again and see if the issue is resolved now?

 

I created a new flow Button -> approval email and successfully approved after two hours.

 

Again, super appreciate your patience with this!

 

Thanks,

Travis

@TravisB

 

Thanks for the follow up: actually, I tested using the Flow Button and it worked (as one of the earlier replies), but I still see the token expiration error when the trigger is "Power Apps".

 

Any way to get flow, which the trigger is "PowerApps" to handle the same token validation?

 

thanks

I have been testing for the past days and noticed that from Sunday (July 9th) the tokens seems to be lasting longer, not sure exactly for how long, but I am doing several tests and got some cases where Approval Email (O365) are handling over 12 hours. I will keep monitoring to check for how long it takes for the Approver to respond, but I can say for now that this solves the problem I had 🙂
