Hi @ Perez,


Could you please share more details about the error tht you meet in the "Get user profile" action?


You could refer to link below to learn more about the error 403:


As is said in the link,in many cases, flows fail because of an authentication error. If you have this type of error, the error message contains Unauthorized or an error code of 401 or 403 appears. You can usually fix an authentication error by updating the connection:


Please check if you have choose the correct connection in the "Get user profile" action or create a now connection ,Please let me know if your issue are solved.
