Create and Update flow fail to replicate some actions properly

Steps to reproduce


  1. Create and save a flow with a "Get File Properties" using a Sharepoint connector
  2. Create a second flow with a manual trigger start with a "Get Flow" power automate actions that pulls the properties from the flow created in step 1
  3. In the next action in the flow created in step 2, create an "Update Flow" action referencing the properties pulled from the step above. Update the flow created in step one with an unmodified version of the flow definition.
  4. An error will occur that looks like this:

Flow save failed with code 'WorkflowRunActionInputsInvalidProperty' and message 'The 'inputs' of workflow run action 'Get_file_properties' of type 'OpenApiConnection' should not have the property 'authentication'.'.


This error seems to occur when including some actions but not others. (I've also noticed it on authorization flows). Others have noticed this issue as well - it appears to stem from a recent update to the power automate flows - perhaps an issue with mismatched versions. For example:
