Hello there, we have a problem with our Flow triggers at present.  


BadRequest. Http request failed with status code 'ConnectFailure' and status message: 'Unable to connect to the remote server'.


Anyone seen this?  Were all working fine before I noticed the error yesterday.

Hi @Brice235i,


Have you changed the authentication or 2-factor authentication was enabled? I got a similar error in the past for the same reason. 

Try going to Data > Connections and see if there's some issue in the SharePoint connection. If not, try switching it to the same SharePoint instance, forcing a new authentication process.


I know this not an actual reason, but if it makes it working again, then we can try to figure out why the actual reason.


If I have answered your question, please mark your post as Solved.
If you like my response, please give it a Thumbs Up.

Hi @Brice235i ,


Is the data source you use SharePoint Online or On-premise data source?

If it is the former, please try to reconfigure the connection or update the connection and see if the issue still exists.

If it is the latter, please consider checking the running status of the gateway. If it is normal, it is recommended to re-create the connection with this On-premise data source.


Best Regards,

Hi, is online.  We tried resetting the connections and it didn't work.  It has gone to the engineering team, and we are hoping to troubleshoot next week.

Were you able to resolve? If so, what was the solution.  I am getting the same error for OneNote trigger, When a page is created.



Has a resolution been identified?  I'm unable to proceed w/ the following trigger, OneDrive - When a File is Created (Properties Only).   On side note, this was working well, it just all of sudden stopped working.

I have the same issue, but with Outlook 365:

  • The flow did work in the past.
  • Failure at trigger onEmail (First action of the flow)
  • No changes where made.
  • I reset the connection in the connections tab with no success.

Any hints are welcome.



Hi, I facing the same issue also. Any resolution?
