Connection Reference not visible for selection in flow

Hi,

 

Working with a client who is building a solution that has some cloud flows. They have created connection references in the solution but when they try to change the connection within the flow the reference is not showing. Normally "Other Connections" shows up here.

The user is a system admin in the environment. I have checked other tenants and we can see "Other References" like normal.

 

Is this a permissions issue or something?

 

Appreciate any help.

 

Andrew

Hi @AndrewHolding , I have seen this before when the flow was originally created outside of a solution. To resolve the issue I put the flow into its own solution, exported as unmanaged and imported again. I was then able to add connection references to the flow.


I hope that works for you

Hi @HSheild ,

 

The client has confirmed that this was the case. Thanks!

You can also open the flow in Power Automate (not in PowerApps). When a solution flow is opened, the flow checker on the flow details page will show a warning to Use connection references. The warning message contains an action to Remove connections so connection references can be added. Clicking that action will remove connections from the trigger and actions in the flow and allow connection references to be selected and created

Thanks for the tip, liridonuka 😀
