Flow using Teams ''when a new channel message is added" turns off unexpectedly

I have a Power Automate flow that is triggered with the Teams 'when a new channel message is added' trigger. The flow has been implemented with internal error-handling, so that it always runs successfully--it hasn't had a failed run in months of use (+200 runs). 


Within the past several weeks, I have noticed that the Flow has unexpectedly stopped running (i.e., shows as being Turned Off in then dashboard), and I am unable to determine why. I will turn the flow back on, and it runs fine. But after an indeterminate period of time, the flow will turn off again without warning.


Is this something others have experienced? I am assuming it's related to the Teams trigger, as I have a range of other Flows that use other triggers, and none of them seem to have this issue.


Hi sbeauchem,


Could you let us know if the Flow was Turn off always the same day at the same time?




I haven't pinned it down exactly, but it does seem to be happening weekly--sometime Thursday evening / Friday morning. It happens whether or not the workflow has been used.

I should also mention that when I turn the workflow back on, all of the messages posted to the channel during the period that the workflow was turned off immediately queue up and run.


This is different from the behavior when I manually turn off the workflow. When I manually turn off the workflow, the workflow isn't 'aware' of any channel activity that occurs during the 'off' state. 

What license do you have assigned? Plan 2 or it is a Free license?




Plan 2 license.
