Yammer connector: post to message failures with title specified

I have a number of flows that are triggered by RSS feeds and post a message to Yammer.
They look like this.
 
The flows run fine since a long time.
 
In the last 1 to 2 days, they all started to fail.
 
Rerunning one of them shows the following failure response:
{
"title": [
"Title is only allowed for messages with type announcement"
],
"code": "title_not_allowed"
}
 
From a Yammer point of view, this kind of makes sense - a message has no title field. However, this used to work and the title field would be moved to the start of the message, in bold.
 
I would expect the field to not be available or better, to work as before without making flow changes.

Re: Yammer connector: post to message failures with title specified

Hi @jawn ,

 

I have some updates for you.

 

The message “Title is only allowed for messages with type announcement”. The hint text for Broadcast is “Post message as an announcement to all users in a group”. You will need to set that to Yes in order to specify a title.

 

I have tested it and it is working properly now.

Re: Yammer connector: post to message failures with title specified

The solution described works for me.

Summary

 

To create an announcement

Set Broadcast to Yes and Title to non-empty. You need to be a Yammer (group) administrator to run this flow.

 

To create a regular post or update

Set Broadcast to No (or leave empty) and keep Title empty to create regular post.
