"Create task" todoist connector keeps failing with error " Request blocked."

I have a Flow that uses Create Task todoist connector.

Few days ago flows started failing on this step with error:


<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" ""> <HTML><HEAD>
<META HTTP-EQUIV="Content-Type" CONTENT="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
<TITLE>ERROR: The request could not be satisfied</TITLE> </HEAD>
<BODY> <H1>ERROR</H1> <H2>The request could not be satisfied.</H2>
<HR noshade size="1px"> Request blocked. <BR clear="all"> <HR noshade size="1px">
<PRE> Generated by cloudfront (CloudFront)
Request ID: jNTxpxUeJ_fJqrgGy-bpuAD_dt-d4TOKD8NblAViaTEQvVQkaZIbKQ== </PRE>




Looks like Todoist's Cloudfront's frontdoor started blocking requests from Microsoft's data centers (?)


Is there a fix/workaround?

Hi @the-coderok,


Could you please share a screenshot of your flow's configuration?


I have made a test on my side and don't have the issue that you mentioned. My flow's configuration as below:22.JPG

The flow works successfully as below:23.JPG


I could not reproduce your issue on my side currently, please check and see if the following article would help in your scenario:


In addition, please take a try to clear cache of your browser and re-create a connection to Todoist connector, then try your flow again to check if the issue is solved.



Best regards,
