PowerAutomate, Create a new task -->The response is not in a JSON format.



I would like to create a new task in the planner directly from project.

Once I define the "Root Site URL" of my project and test the flow, I get following error message.

I tried to fix it but I'm lost...


Error details:

The response is not in a JSON format.


"error": {
    "message""The response is not in a JSON format.",
    "innerError""Cannot read server response."
Thank you:)

Hi Manuel13

The 404 error usually represents connection authorization.  Could u share your error details regarding "Root Site URL" of project? You could also check whether your connection credentials have right access to the plan project.
