Flow never kicks off

I have a flow that's to be kicked off by tagging an email in any folder in an account.  Works great when I use the "test" option in Flow.


Never triggers automatically, though.  Is there a significant delay to this?

@ms_user Normally, you can see a delay of up to 5 minutes depending on your license. Can you post a screen shot of your Flow?

Hello @ms_user can you send us a screenshot of your flow?


Sorry for the delay.  I can't show the whole flow (some of the steps won't allow "peek," and I don't know any other way to show what's really there), but here's the first step, which seems to be what's failing (because there's no run history).

    "inputs": {
        "host": {
            "connection": {
                "name": "@parameters('$connections')['shared_outlook']['connectionId']"
        "method": "get",
        "path": "/Mail/OnFlaggedEmail",
        "queries": {
            "folderPath": "Id::AQMkADAwATM3ZmYAZS1hNzcAZS03OWY0LTAwAi0wMAoALgAAAy7V0O49DO9Nu8HycrzEw1wBACo_vc9HVy9Gtr-ZPOHeQHoABCYG9B0AAAA=",
            "importance": "Any",
            "fetchOnlyWithAttachment": false,
            "includeAttachments": true
        "authentication": "@parameters('$authentication')"
    "recurrence": {
        "interval": 15,
        "frequency": "Minute"
    "metadata": {
        "flowSystemMetadata": {
            "swaggerOperationId": "OnFlaggedEmail"
        "Id::AQMkADAwATM3ZmYAZS1hNzcAZS03OWY0LTAwAi0wMAoALgAAAy7V0O49DO9Nu8HycrzEw1wBACo_vc9HVy9Gtr-ZPOHeQHoABCYG9B0AAAA=": "ToDo"
    "splitOn": "@triggerBody()?['value']"

  Please keep in mind - I'm a total noob, to automating stuff. 


Wouldn't you know it - it worked after I posted that.  It seems unpredictable, though.  Sometimes doesn't run overnight, after I've flagged a message in the right folder, sometimes runs within the stated 15 minutes.


I will monitor.


I am getting a consistent warning about my connections failing, when I go to edit my flows, and see that others have that same error, so I wonder if that's affecting the reliability.  I can't see my connections, through Data > Connections, so i'm not sure what the problem is.
