HTTP Action - Get Method Authentication

Hi Community,


I am trying to use a GET method in a HTTP call to a child flow, but get the following response to the parent flow run:


The request must be authenticated only by Shared Access scheme.


I can get the HTTP request to work if I use the POST method, or if I use the "Run a Child Flow" action with the GET methods specified.  So I do have a workaround, but I wanted to see if I can get the parent-child call to work properly with the HTTP action and the GET method. 


The limitation on using the GET method with the 'Run a Child Flow" action is that you can't specify query parameters, something I wanted to do in the HTTP call to the child flow to pass a single parameter for the child flow to use.


I suspect it has something to do with the environment set up because I have managed to make this approach work in a different Tenant under my control.


Any suggestions gratefully received.


Cheers, Innes

Hi there, 


I went looking around for some answers, and it seems like this fellow had the same issue and the answer was to "copy the URL from the original source".


I guess it somehow retains the old auth information? Unsure, but, seems like it might be helpful? Let us know.





(And, as an aside, I'm sure you've already seen this? )

Hi Rhia, Thanks for your reply and link.  I did try this suggestion, but got the same result.  On a completely separate tenant I got the HTTP action to work with a GET, so suspect it's a policy/restriction set on the problem tenant.  I've worked around it, but would still like to do it the correct way with a GET as opposed to a POST.  Cheers, Innes
