The request failed. Error code: 'CdsInstanceInAdminOnlyMode'

Hi All,


On Friday we changed our Dynamics 365 environment to Admin Only mode while we published some changes and then turned the Admin Only mode off... however, all of our Flows that use Approvals are now saying:


The request failed. Error code: 'CdsInstanceInAdminOnlyMode'. Error Message: 'The Microsoft Dataverse instance is in AdminOnly mode and Power Automate cannot access the database. Your environment admin must enable the instance for all users for Approvals to function.'.


I'm stuck as to what to do?


Thank You,

Any luck fixing this? We are having a similar issue.
