Issues with Power Automate Management connectors

Hi,

 

has anyone had issues with any of the Power Automate Management connectors in the past 24-36hrs?

 

1) I have a Flow to list all connectors, runs on a schedule at 3am daily. I tried a few manual tests of this Flow yesterday, sometimes it would work and sometimes fail, so it’s not consistent. The scheduled run earlier today failed for the same reason

2) same for another flow, and the Get Flow as Admin action. We have a couple Flows in our tenant that don’t have any connectors (identified as part of our daily scans to clean the environment), there has been zero issues with retrieving these via the Flow action, but again in the last 24-36hrs have experienced issues because the embedded Connector object is Null. Yes, could do a workaround but more interested to ascertain why it’s been working fine for weeks but now isn’t

Keen to know if anyone else has experienced similar?

 

Cheers

Hi @CraigWhiteKCL 

 

The second one fails because the "Connection Name" should have a value and is empty. You can check this in the history by checking the output for the "List Flows as Admin" action. Before the "Get Flow as Admin" action, I would validate if the connection has a value or not so that the Flow doesn't break.

 

Regarding the first, it's a little bit stranger because you're always expecting a valid JSON. Does this issue remain? It could be something temporary. Can you please share the JSON offuscating anything sensitive to your organization?

 

If I have answered your question, please mark your post as Solved.

@manuelstgomes : I have the same problem and I know at least one other user. 

There must be some problem with the ListApis (ListConnectors) Action.

 

My flow was running for months, now I get error messages:

Here is the JSON I got back sind 5 days:

I’m getting the same outputs as @max81 . The List Connectors action has consistently failed for over a week now

Hi @max81 and @CraigWhiteKCL 

 

I tend to agree with @max81 .. It's a strange issue, and taking so much time is not normal behavior.

 

I will ping Microsoft's support to see if there's an issue.

We are experiencing the same issue with a flow that uses the "List Connectors" connector.

Failures started on the 27th Jan 2021.

Hi @PhilKD 

 

I'll keep my early remark that it's not an issue with the Flow, but something's wrong in Power Automate.

I would ping the team in the Bug section of this site:

At least for me: Connector-Action is running again since today.

Hi Max81

I made these changes before my flow ran this morning but it did fail yesterday at 08:30 (UK).

Hi @PhilKD , @CraigWhiteKCL  and @max81 

 

Unfortunately, this stuff happens once in a while.

But I'm sure it will be fixed ASAP.

 

Cheers

Hi @CraigWhiteKCL ,
1) It seems like a global issue from Microsoft... On my side I have an issue with the "List Flows as Admin" action that fails with the same error if I turn Pagination On and try to retrieve more than 250 Flows. It used to work perfectly until a few days ago and I raised it with MS Support. Since the error message is the same as the one you get and that you detected the issue at the same time as we did it makes me think this is related.

2) It believe this is the "expected" behavior. We always had to plan for the case when no connection is found in our Flows using this action... I never reported it but it might be something that the MS DEV team could improve if they'd change the required property of 'connectionName' to false... Might be worth reporting it with MS Support...
Hope it helps
