Template Validation Failed message

Hello, 

 

I'm still learning so please bear with me... I'm trying to create an approval flow where 2/3 approvals are needed in order for it to continue. I mirrored my approach to a post listed here. However, I'm receiving an error stating, "Flow save failed with code 'InvalidTemplate' and message 'The template validation failed: 'The action(s) 'Compose 2, Compose 4' referenced by 'inputs' in action 'Condition' are not defined in the template"

 

What am I missing?

Hi @Shane7,

 

Please take attention two points, one is the variable of action name in expression, the blank should use "_" instead of, the other is add() function only support two Parameters added, so you should add two add() function to add three number.

add(add(outputs('Compose_1'),outputs('Compose_2')),outputs('Compose_3'))

Can you paste the expressions you are using in 2 & 4 please?

Compose 2 = 

if(equals(body('Start_an_approval')?['response'],'Approve'),1,0)
 
Compose 4 = 
if(equals(body('Start_an_approval_4')?['response'],'Approve'),1,0)

Did you consider doing it this way?

Correct me if I'm wrong but with that method it requires all recipients to approve no? 

 

My goal is that the flow will still work if only 2/3 members approve.  

Yep, everyone will need to respond to that one. I'll try replicate your scenario in my test environment. What is the expression you have in the condition?

Condition: 

 

add(outputs('Compose 1'),ouputs('Compose 2'),outputs('Compose 3'))
 
 
Disclaimer: After posting this I realized how disorganized my naming of the compose and approvals was so I renamed them for clarity.
