Trying to set up the instagram comments shared to excel flow and I keep getting this error message when I try to connect my instagram

{"error_type": "OAuthException", "code": 400, "error_message": "Invalid platform app"}

Any ideas what I'm doing wrong?

Hi @KMcPY,


Could you please share a screenshot of your Flow configuration?

Before using Instagram connector, we should create an Instagram connection, you only need the username and password.

@v-litu-msft I am getting this error as well, and I am not sure I am following the solution. Does this flow still work??

I am having the same problem.
I looked for the workflow from the main page and clicked on it, and then the + sign to add my instagram acccount.



and after doing the log-in (obviously correct username and PW) this error popped out:

{"error_type": "OAuthException", "code": 400, "error_message": "Invalid platform app"}

i have this issue as well
