I have a MS Flow Approval process which is triggered via a selected file in SharePoint. The flow should be:

  • User Selects file and triggers flow
  • Flow Approval process starts which emails manager for approval
  • List item is published if approval process accepted

The problem is it seems to fail if the manager doesnt approve instantly. See flow: MS Flow

My assumption is the sharepoint token is expiring, but is there a work around? its happening within 48hours.

update: I read somewhere that I need to do a Get metadata after the approval process to refresh the etag, I did this, with the same error, screen shot below:

  • Hi, can you add screenshot of the 'Set Content Approval Status'? Thank you – Zdeněk Vinduška Mar 5 at 9:36

  • Under which account you are publishing this flow? – Zdeněk Vinduška Mar 5 at 11:20
  • A user with Full control over the document library – michael Mar 5 at 11:25
  • Ok, so if somebody approve instantly it's working correctly? – Zdeněk Vinduška Mar 5 at 11:26
