'Ask in PowerApps' element is not removed from Automate JSON when deleted from Flow GUI

'Ask in PowerApps' element is not removed from Automate JSON when deleted from Automate GUI.


Steps to reproduce:

- Create new Instant Automate

- Choose PowerApps trigger

- Add a Compose action

- Select 'Ask in PowerApps'

- Click Save

- Remove the 'Ask in PowerApps' item from Compose and replace it with anything else (ex: a string)

- Click Save

- Click 'Peek Code' in the trigger menu

- The 'required' section will still contain the deleted element


I did not run into this issue in the above manner, but it is a simple way to reproduce it. I found the problem when trying to populate a SharePoint with PowerApp values, so it appears to be a general Automate issue, not specific to the Compose action.

Hi @Anonymous ,


Thank you for your feedback!

I could reproduce the same situation on my side, and we could not edit the peek code of the trigger currently.

Although we have deleted the corresponding Ask in PowerApps in other field, this change will not be reflected on the trigger, it will also maintain the previous code, only when you add an Ask in PowerApps again, it will add extra attributes.

I will report this situation and if there are any updates, I will post back.
