Hello PA group

another dumb question: Why do I have so many ArcGIS Connections listed in in Power Automate?

and each time my flow has a "disconnected connection" the only way to get the flow going again is to Add a new connection. I must be doing something wrong here...

Any advice on this issue of mine would be much appreciated.

 

Thanks!

Good Day @DominicRoberge2 - the number of connections persist because of the token expiration issue we are working with Microsoft on. More details on the issue is shared in this Community post.

Three is a way to delete the expired connections if you wanted to do some housekeeping and make it easier on yourself. In the lefthand menu bar, select 'Connections', this will list all of the connections you have made in Power Automate.

 Then click the '...' next to the old connections and it will give you the option to delete it.

 I go through and do maintenance every couple of weeks, cause I get confused too. I hope this helps explain why you this is happening and how you might be able to clean it up a little bit.
