Flow cannot use a Child Flow because of them being in a different Subscription despite being in same Managed Solution

I have a managed solution with canvas app, entities, flows and environment variables.


While trying to turn on the Parent flow that refers a child flow I get the following error, 


Your flow could not turn on: XXXParent. Error: Flow client error returned with status code "NotFound" and details "{"error":{"code":"AzureResourceManagerRequestFailed","message":"Request to Azure Resource Manager failed with error: 'The LogicApps API call failed with http status code 'NotFound' and response content '{\"error\":{\"code\":\"NestedWorkflowNotFound\",\"message\":\"The workflow '/subscriptions/XXXXX-4b441017c969/resourceGroups/XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX-90509BFD12B74E63AD3CE87A791A476F-ENV/providers/Microsoft.Logic/workflows/XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX019' could not be found in location 'canadacentral'. Both the parent workflow 'XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX94' and the child workflow '/subscriptions/XXXXX-4b441017c969/resourceGroups/XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX-90509BFD12B74E63AD3CE87A791A476F-ENV/providers/Microsoft.Logic/workflows/XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX019' must exist in the same location.\"}}''."}}".


I'm trying to understand why this issue happens when:

Both the parent flow and the child-flow it is calling are in the same Power Platform environment.

They are both within the same Solution.


The child flow is in turned on state. I cannot turn off the child flow as well and I get the following error when I turn off the child flow, Your flow could not turn off: XXXXXXXXXXXChild. Error: Flow client error returned with status code "NotFound" and details "{"error":{"code":"FlowNotFound","message":"Could not find flow 'XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX019'."}}".


Because of this issue I am not even able to uninstall the managed solution.


I have read elsewhere that the flows within a solution is buggy and PG is working actively on it. Is there a workaround for this solution without deleting the child flow and creating it again or removing the flows from the managed solution ?

Hi @sajithcp,


There is a post has the same issue with you, please try to delete the child Flow and recreate a new one and try it again:

Hi @v-litu-msft ,


Deleting child flow and recreating is not an option. As this is bundled together as a managed solution and is taken to higher environment as part of an ALM process. For e.g, this issue happens in a higher environment say UAT or PRD where the managed solution is deployed. I cannot delete and recreate the child flow in a higher environment. This is the reason for this new post.
