Flow cannot be used as a child workflow because it is on an old version of Flow. Please re-create it inside a solution.

Hi there all,

 

I've been trying to use the new child flows feature in the solutions environment. I have followed the instructions as described here, but when trying to add one of the flows it says "cannot be used as a child workflow because it is on an old version of Flow. Please re-create it inside a solution.". The flow is part of the solution, and I have even tried copying the logic to a completely new flow, but the error still occurs. Does anyone have any suggestions? (I've made sure the connectors are not using the run-only user)

I have the same issue, I did even create it in the Solutions page,  any updates on this?

Getting the same thing here too.

 

One solution is to use the "Common Data Service (current environment)" connector only, but it seems that certain connectors/actions are causing this message to be displayed with no indication as to which element is causing the problem, the only way to figure it out seems to be trial and error.

I think the issue could be to do with me using the approvals connector in the child flow, which is irritating as it is basically the only connector I need to use in it. The common data service connectors require a premium subscription don't they? I would happily carry on using http to run flows if they weren't making it premium. Is there anyone from microsoft who can elaborate?
