Error when sending Push notifications to Powerapps from Flow

I am trying to send a simple push notification from flow to a power app when a new record is created in a SharePoint list.  I have added the SendPushNotification connection to the flow.  However, I'm not sure what ot put in the Recipients Item or Parameters box for the required input on this box.  I have tried several different options and continue to get an error.  


Status code 400




{ "error":{


  "message": "The request content was invalid and could not be deserialized: 'Error converting value 53 to type"Microsoft.WindowsAzure.ResourceStack.Common.Collections.InsensitiveDictionary'1[System.String]".Path'params',line 1, postion53'."


Can someone help me understand what I should enter in the "SendPushNotification" conector inputs for


     Recipents Item


     Open App

Re: Error when sending Push notifications to Powerapps from Flow

Hi @thanke,


The Recipents field requires list of user emails or user principle identifiers, so we need to fill an array value which contains email address in Recipents field. The Message field require message body for the push notification, please fill a string value in it. The Open App field indicates that whether to open or not the app when user taps on the push notification. Within Parameters field, we need to fill a json value.

I have made a test on my side, please take a try with the following workaround:8.PNG

 The flow works successfully as below:9.JPG
