“Could not find connection” Error When Exporting a Flow

One of my favorite things about Flow is how easily you can export and import Flows to reuse them. They can be reused in your Office 365 tenant and even moved to another tenant. Instructions on how to export and import a Flow can be found here, video instructions can be found here. One issue you may encounter is an error message saying something like “Could not find connection ‘shared-sharepointonl-f293cf62-4029-41ff-9e33-ed0c386a1719’ for api ‘shared_sharepointonline’.”

Don’t worry! This just means that one of your connections in the Flow is broken. To fix this all you need to do is edit the Flow and see which step your connection is broken in (it could be broken in more than one step). Click on the ellipse to select the connection. If you do not have any valid connections click on “+ Add new connection”.
