Teams Approval into private channel

Having now got private channels, I am trying to get an approval flow running which uses a private admin channel for the team to manage approvals.  It works fine into a public channel, but as the Team is going to have many guest accounts I dont want them to see the approval cards as they are generated. 

When the step runs in flow I get an error

 
"Request to the Bot framework failed with error: '{\"error\":{\"code\":\"BotNotInConversationRoster\",\"message\":\"The bot is not part of the conversation roster.\"}}'."
Which to me says that the flowbot isn't a member of the private channel and so can't post to it, the connector is authenticated as my account which is a member of the channel.  Can anyone suggest a way round this, ie can I get the flowbot to authenticate as me?

Hi Barry,

 

Here's a Flow to demonstrate the issue

 

FlowPrivateChannelError.png

 

In the step "Post your own adaptive card as the Flow bot to a channel", if I select the public General channel it works fine.  Using a private channel gives the error

 

Request to the Bot framework failed with error: '{"error":{"code":"BotNotInConversationRoster","message":"The bot is not part of the conversation roster."}}'.

 

The bot obviously isnt a user I can add to the private channel, so even though the connection is made as my user account which is both a Team owner and a member of the private channel it doesnt work.  I have tried the 'Requestor' option without success as well
