Failed to save flow in Power Automate Desktop

I am using Power Automate Desktop to create some flow.

But it cannot be saved now.

 

Error Message: Flow "xxx" failed to save

Correlation ID: d419547a-c69a-4aba-a498-93c68c5d2a2d

Can anyone advise the reason and solution?
I have searched around and found the topic below but it cannot solve my problem because I already have database and already have upgraded my plan.

Also, this problem only happen to Power Automate Desktop.

There is no problem if I use Windows Recorder.

Hi @victorwc

 

Is this an issue that happens with all your desktop flows?

 

 Also, could you check at the Windows Event Logs if there are any logs related to this error?

I face the same issue. My flow runs fine. While saving I get below error, please help on this.

I am also having this issue.  What exactly should I be looking for in the Event Logs?

I'm having the same issue too. It is frustrating that it started with able to save without any issues. After keep adding steps, I got this error. This could happen at any particular step. Disabling or removing recently-added steps did not help. Basically, I will have to start a new flow.

If you're using a personal Microsoft account, please check if your OneDrive is working fine. Otherwise you might have internet connection issues? Also try to logout/login from/to PAD.

I'm using the Enterprise Microsoft 365 account. Log on/off did not help. I even tried on a different machine and got the same error

 

Project SaveProject Saver.

I can't even do that.  I can't save ANY flows at all.

You cannot even do it even no actions or a simple one? I started with able to save then afterward it would fail. Removing recently-added ones would not help.

Nope.  I can't even save a flow with no actions at all.

Do you have the latest version installed? https://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=2102613

Are all IP addresses reachable? https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-automate/ip-address-configuration

Backup and clear %localappdata%\Microsoft\Power Automate Desktop

Or Dataverse database issue or policy/permission changes?

yes, I'm using the latest version. All IP addresses are reachable. Clearing the localappdata did not help. No Dataverse. Note that I am able to save project when I start a new one and save when adding some actions. At some random # of actions, it will start failing. Removing recently-added actions did not work.

You don't have a dataverse database?

I do have a Dataverse database I thought the question is if I'm using Dataverse in my project. If it is a permission issue, why I'm able to save when I create a new project?

Thanks.

Today the same error appeared to me.
It does not seem to be damage in the particular flow, because I closed the flow losing develop, then I opened other past good flows and when trying to save, I get the same error. 😕😐

I installed the latest version 2.7.49.21099 and the error appeared again, after few work time. 😓

After further investigation, I found this is the issue that access to some endpoints is blocked by security software (Netskope client), which is required on the work computer to monitor network traffic. I validated this by terminating the Netskope process from Task Manager, I then can save the project. Obviously, the security software will spawn back. 

 

Permanently, I worked with IT and MS Support to whitelist these Worldwide and All endpoints listed here https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-automate/ip-address-configuration#desktop-flows-services-requ...

Here is the solution that worked for me. 

 

PAD Console does not show any flows (microsoft.com)
