My flows keeps being turned off constantly

I built important flows connected to PowerApps, Sharepoint etc and they have been working fine for years for now.

 

But since this month started some of them keeps being turned off & not sure why this happens. Could anybody help?

I've checked some possible cause like DLP, but my emphasis is "It's been working until this month".

Each single of my flows works an important role so it needs to work 24/7.

 

Is there any new management method by Microsoft that shuts down the user-built codes & apps?

 

Those flows in issue are shared with my team, PowerApps-based, instant type, and have connections with Sharepoint & Quickbooks Online.

Any advice are welcomed!

Hi @ofs,

 

So the Flow is turn off by it automatically, right?

Did you create a Flow about Flow management to turn off a Flow?

So, how about create a Flow management Flow that checks these Flows needs to keep running. If they closed, turn it on, for example:

Thank you Lin, it seems working after I tested!

Currently I have the same issue!

My flow ran for more then a year, untouched. Every day! Now it get´s deactivated after 4-5 days.

 

  • There is no flow running, which might do this on purpose
  • There are no errors within the execution
  • It does not have an accidental "deactivate this flow"-condition

What have I done:

  • Modify & save it
  • Looking into the log, which doesn´t say anything (at least to me)
  • Activate it several times

 

As mentioned, I can create a flow, which checks the status and activate it. But this could not seriously meant to be the solution 🤔

The February 15th, might be the first time where this happened.

Many users in this thread : https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/General-Power-Automate/Flow-Turning-off-over-weekend/m-p/490786#...

 

are seeing the same issue. Mine also started to be turned off by themselves starting around February 15 or 16.

 

Maybe Microsoft should look into this.

This should not be classified as an acceptable solution.  This does not acknowledge the root cause of the problem nor does it provide a reliable solution.  What if the flow you create to check and turn on your existing flow turns itself off?  Are we to just keep creating flows to check our flows?
