Bad Request: Error code: 'ApprovalSubscriptionNotAllowed'. Help!

What does this mean? 


I've been making an approval flow, and at the stage where I have 13 approvals being started at the same time, this error occurs.

Originally, this error didn't occur when I ran it last week so I am quite confused. 


Heres the error in full: 


The request failed. Error code: 'ApprovalSubscriptionNotAllowed'. Error Message: 'Cannot wait on this approval in its current state.'.


This error only occurred on one of the 13 approval requests. 


Hi Alfie_smith. 


You say that the error only occurred on one of the 13 approval requests. 

Do you have more similar errors?

Could you share with us an screenshot?





Hi there.


The error seemed to disappear a couple hours after it occurred. I did nothing to the flow, but just didn't use it and it seemed to work again.


I'm not too sure why it occurred, and haven't experienced this since.
