Can't Save Flow due to validation error (appears to be a global microsoft issue)

Note: As of 10/11/2019 AM the issue appears to have been resolved by Microsoft. THANK YOU!

They have updated the default interval value


"recurrence": {
"interval": 5,
"frequency": "Minute"
},

 

A critical Microsoft (not user) error started happening today 10/10/2019 around 3PM CST

1) Click new automated flow

2) Trigger SharePoint "When an item is created"

3) Add any action

4) Try to save the flow and you receive the following error message, "The template validation failed: 'The 'recurrence' property of template trigger 'When_an_item_is_created' at line '1' and column '979' is not defined or not valid.'.Unfortunately due to this error I am unable to modify any of my existing flows, nor save any newly created flows....

 

When I peek the code in reference to the "recurrence" property this is what I see:

"recurrence": {
"interval": -0.016666666666666666,
"frequency": "Minute"  },
 
The interval is defined by Microsoft directly. This is not something that users have control over. My guess is that this interval was modified by someone at Microsoft today and now it's causing the above error.

Same here! Thought I was going crazy until I found this thread. I'm new here - what do we need to do to help get eyes on this? 

What's really weird is that I don't seem to be getting the same error when I create a test on the mobile app using the same functions (When an item is created or modified), but there's no way I can work on that for long.

This is NOT fixed for me. Anyone else still having issues?
