Flow doesn't trigger from a Sharepoint webpart



I've create a flow trigger "For a Selected Item" which works fine with a Microsoft List (there is a button on one of the columns which triggers this). I am the owner of the list, flow, and the Sharepoint site. 


Upon adding the list (actually a view of the list) on a web part, I can see the button on the column to trigger the flow but nothing happens when I clicked. I've already set the list in the Owners and Run-only users but no luck. Does this just not work on Sharepoint pages?


Here's the json format of the column (so that there's a button):


  "$schema": "",
  "elmType": "button",
  "customRowAction": {
    "action": "executeFlow",
    "actionParams": "{\"id\": \"myguid\"}"
  "attributes": {
    "class": "ms-fontColor-themePrimary ms-fontColor-themeDarker--hover"
  "style": {
    "border": "none",
    "background-color": "transparent",
    "cursor": "pointer",
    "display": "=if([$ApprovalStatus] == 'Approved' || [$ApprovalStatus] == 'Pending' , 'none', 'display')"
  "children": [
      "elmType": "span",
      "attributes": {
        "iconName": "Flow"
      "style": {
        "padding-right": "6px"
      "elmType": "span",
      "txtContent": "=if([$ApprovalStatus] == 'Rejected', 'Restart Approval', 'Start Approval')"

This is how the button looks like (just so you'd have an idea of what I'm talking about):



Anything I might have missed?
