permissions to perform action 'run' on scope '/triggers/manual/paths/

Hello everyone


I used until now the power automate api to retrieve data from a workflow on the qualtrics solution. and it worked great!


But since a few days, all my flows are in error. However, I haven't changed anything, neither on Qualtrics nor on PA.


here is the error message i get :


{  "message": "{\"error\":{\"code\":\"AuthorizationFailed\",\"message\":\"You do not have permissions to perform action 'run' on scope '/triggers/manual/paths/'. Verify you are making the request with the appropriate HTTP method. See for details.\"}}", "needRetry": false }


I don't understand, I have set on Qualtrics that this POST API does not require any authentication ? What could have changed in your opinion? The peculiar thing is that when I make a test call on the API it works perfectly, it's in the global workflow that I get the failure.


Thanks for your help 🙂

@JRKBMM did you ever found a solution? I have a flow with a trigger "When a HTTP response is received" that gives the same error when the POST URL is being called by a third party. However, when I call the same POST URL from postman it works fine...

@JRKBMM , I just stumbled upon this comment on stackoverflow:

It states that the "sp" parameters should be changed from "sp=%2Ftriggers%2Fmanual%2Frun" to "sp=/triggers/manual/run"... I tried that and my flow got triggered again!

@KoenJanssensPD   Thank you so much for this response.  I've had a ticket open with Microsoft on this for more than 2 weeks.  Would have never guessed that the encoding of the / would be the issue.  Not sure if the power automate app should be encoding the URL for post commands.   -Todd

Had this same issue with sp = %2Ftriggers%2Fmanual%2Frun changed to sp = /triggers/manual/run ... issue was resolved (Flow executed properly).
