Sync Google calendar to office 365

I have a flow working for more than a year. Everything i create, update or delete a google calendar event it creates, updates an office calendar event

2 weeks ago it stopped working due to error 249 (too much API use I think)

I am unable to get it to restart. Any suggestions?

It seems I was able to resolve this

I turned off the broken flow

I saved it w a new name (error generated due to non existing template. Just ignore it)

Turn on copy

Copy works!

@garce 429 error usually means throttling and you can create several different Google calendar connector and assign different connector to the flow.

Thanks, good idea to split in several ones to avoid throttling. Maybe I can randomize it on two paths with different google connectors. Something like when action happens, check timestamp, if second is even use google connector 1, otherwise use google connector 2

One thing to note though, my flow was permanently stuck/broken. It didnt run for three weeks. I had gotten errors before but they only impacted one particular run of the flow. So although using separate flows is a good idea this seemed like a different problem

This happened to my Google Cal > Outlook cal flow that has worked great for years.  I'm using the create event (v4) and now the flow keeps failing, because of a date/time error.  I've looked through the string formatting (I have zero expression skills) issues and have tried:

 

addDays(items('Apply_to_each')?['start'], -60,'yyyy-MM-ddThh:mm:ssZ') - which fails.
formatDateTime - which fails, and UTC convert, etc. All fail.  
 
Why doesn't the standard "Event Start Date-Time" dynamic content work in both start and end fields?
 
This used to be easy and while there is a template for outlook to google cal, I can't find the reverse.

I would also be interested in a template for Google to Office 365 sync, covering newly created, updated and deleted event. Please let me know if someone knows where to find it.
