I published the PVA to a demo site and later made some additional tweaks to a topic. Now when I try to publish these changes I get an error message that 1 topic contains errors. I've run the topic checker on the topic I changed and it says there are no errors and warnings, but publishing still fails. Is there something I'm missing or is this a potential bug?
I encounter the same issue. Can you check if you have the same behavior in your flow?
Just to give some background info:
I've figured out that this issue happens if I create a link between the outcome of the condition and the original question. If I delete this link, I can publish the bot.
This seems like a bug to me?
@JBlackham, can you share some more information on what you are doing in your topic? If possible, please share a screenshot of the dialog where the error shows? Thanks, Gitika.
@Vincent_vds -- That was my problem! Thanks for helping me debug it. My flow had a recursive loop and went back to an earlier stage in the flow. Apparently it can't/won't publish if you do that. If you aren't allowed to make a recursive flow loop, the drag-and-drop editor should flag that as an error or at least flag it as a warning. It instead said that there was nothing wrong and allowed you to publish and then failed with unhelpful error logs.
@Vincent_vds, this does seem like a bug: Recursive dialogs aren't allowed, but we don't error out in the dialog. In fact, from what I see, this doesn't have anything to do with the Power Automate flow you have, its the fact that you have a recursive dialog that's causing the publish to fail.
I have flagged it to the team and will write back when I know more about how we will handle it. Thanks.
