Repeated failed notifications


I keep getting repeated failed notifications on one of my flows and 1 deleted flow


Is there any way to stop this?


You would think a deleted flow would cancel all notifications to run when it is deleted?

Re: Repeated failed notifications

Hi @jeremy_heath,


I have tested on my side that creates a recurrence Flow to send a notification every minute if the Flow still exists. Once I deleted it, the notification will stop sending.

Could you please share the information about the failed notifications? If possible, you can reproduce the Flow, and show us how you configure it.

Hey @jeremy_heath 


May be you can check if the flow has not actually been deleted by creating another one and using the list flows action and delete the flow or directly use the delete flow action and select the environment in which that flow is, select the flow and delete it. Something as shown in the image below: 



Can you try this and see if you continue to face the same issue? 


Hope this Helps!

It is only my second time using flow


This image is from my notification and you can see the grey one which is deleted yet it still happens

I've just checked and it fired again 20 mins ago


These 2 keep happening over and over again.


I'm happy to get more info, I just don't know where to look.


Many thanks

Re: Repeated failed notifications

I can't remember how I made the flow that errors and is deleted. Like I say I'm new to Flow
Here is the active one that errors.


From the errors it seems to be the top step that has the problem, Is it because a mail comes in and doesn't meet the requirement that it is untouched for 30 mins?
This is the error I see


Do I need a fail condition of some sort at that step?

Re: Repeated failed notifications

I tried to find the things you had asked for within the flows and in the menus and can't see anything like that.

Could you be more specific as I'm new to Flow

Re: Repeated failed notifications

The notifications for failed flows is not Instantaneous. These notifications could appears hours, days, or even later in the week.
Hope this helps.

I was having the same issue.  I went to Connections.  Then selected the connector that was using the deleted flow.  (If you click on the connection, you can see which flows are using the connector).  Then I deleted the connector.
