Hi @jaideepAdobe ,

 

Please try the following and see if it solves your problem:

  • Clear your browser's cache, then log back into your account on the Github portal, and see if you can log in normally.
  • Save your current Flow as a copy, then open this Flow and recreate the Github connection.

Please do the above operation and see if similar issues still exist.

It worked after re-creating the flow but I don't think this is a valid solution. How am I supposed to know when my GitHub connection will start to fail randomly unless I log in and check the flow.

 

We are trying to automate things but this seems to be going other way.


You'll know because the Flow will fail and you'll receive an email and/or notification of the failure. Power Automate requires connectors that connect to 3rd party services, and periodically there are issues with the connectivity between the Flow and those services. 

It is also good practice to insure that your Flow Connectors are working and connected on a regular basis, especially after account-related changes, such as email address or password changes. You can verify the connectors under Data > Connections within the Power Automate menu.
