Flow Periodically Failing for Different Reasons

So, suddenly my workflow is periodically failing for various reasons. It started yesterday after I added an additional condition at the top of the flow and rolled the steps under the new condition. I can't figure out what the issue is because sometimes flows succeed. I can't find any trigger fields that match with the ones that fail or succeed. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Re: Flow Periodically Failing for Different Reasons

Hi @jduga ,

 

Thanks for feedback.

 

About the timeout issue, please check your network condition and make sure they are working properly.

There are limits for a single outgoing request for Microsoft Flow, please check the following doc for more details:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/flow/limits-and-config

 

About the API hub token exchange internal server, I have seen the similar issue on PowerApps forum at here:

https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/General-Discussion/An-Error-Occurred-on-the-Server/td-p/265418

Please consider raise a support ticket if the issue continuously occurs.

 

By the way, what’s your location? Could you share a URL to the flow?

 

Best regards,

Mabel

Hi, Mabel-

 

Can you see a flow if you just have the URL? Wouldn't you have to be a co-owner of it?

Hi @jduga ,

 

What’s your current situation?

 

Does the issue still exist?

 

PGs will help check the flow run details at the backend with the URL of the flow.

 

Best regards,

Mabel

Re: Flow Periodically Failing for Different Reasons

Yes, the flow is still periodically failing, but the ones I've been seeing in the past two days are "BadGateway". Can I private message you the URL to the flow?

Hi @jduga ,

 

On which step do you get the error “BadGateway”?

 

Please share more details on the error message.

 

Yes, you could send me a private message the URL to the flow.

Mabel

Hi @jduga ,

 

The default Retry attempts for Flow is 4, while we could change the default use action settings.

 

Please go to Settings>Retry of action Update item to configure how many times the flow will retry when there is a transient failure.

 

Please try to change the retry policy to see if it will work.
