TRigger substitution fails

Hi all

I have defined a Flow with approx 25 steps, including an Apply To each with aprox 5 extra steps. The flow is based on REcurrence trigger.

The problem is, I cannot substitute this recurrence trigger, according to the GUI "The current step cannot be deleted because an action depends on its outputs" but I haven't used any trigger output on following actions. Actually, if I add a Condition block after the trigger and try to select an otput from the trigger, the editor displays "no dynamic content available" so I guess REcurrence trigger do not offer outputs.


I have built a very simple test flow with the same trigger an an only Action block; in such a case the editor allows me to remove the trigger and add a new one.


Is it any workaround I can apply? Or the only way is to recreate the flow from scratch?

Thank you in advance!

Hi @ efialttes,


Could you please share a screenshot of the configuration of the flow? 


I cannot reproduce your issue. I have made a test and the trigger could be deleted successfully.

Re: TRigger substitution fails

Sorry for answering so late!

So today the Flow UI allows me to remove the recurrence trigger and add a "When an email is received" trigger instead, meaning something has been fixed. That's the good news.


But when saving the changes, the following error is displayed:


The trigger 'Recurrence' of current version of workflow '89cfe887-985c-4dac-acd1-197cf7c45f59' has concurrency runtime configuration specified. Trigger concurrency runtime configuration cannot be removed once specified.


So instead of replacing the trigger, I've tried to removed Concurrency config from the Recurrence trigger, see if I can save it; if so then try to replace the trigger. Unfortunatelly, when trying to save the Flow with te REcurrence trigger and no Concurrency config, the same error is displayed.


Suggestions are welcome!
