Power Automate Flow – Flow client error returned with status code “Bad Request”

In Power Automate Flow, you may encounter the error below when tryin to save the flow

Request to XRM API failed with error: ‘Message: Flow client error returned with status code “BadRequest” and details “{“error”:{“code”:”InvalidOpenApiFlow”,”message”:”Flow save failed with code ‘InvalidTemplate’ and message ‘The template validation failed: ‘The repetition action(s) ‘Apply_to_each’ referenced by ‘inputs’ in action ‘Create_a_new_record’ are not defined in the template.’.’.”}}”. Code: 0x80060467 InnerError: Type: System.ServiceModel.FaultException`1[[Microsoft.Xrm.Sdk.OrganizationServiceFault, Microsoft.Xrm.Sdk, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35]]

There issue may happen when you’re trying to copy a value (example, lookup) from one flow to the other because the flow may have different collection (list of records for example) names. Therefore, when you’re copying one value from one flow to the other, you’re also copying the collection name.

For example, in one flow, your collection name is


In the other flow, if the collection name is different, and you’re copying the above value and pasting in the flow, you’ll see the “Bad Request” error.

To fix the issue, I deleted the value, selected the lookup field from the existing flow using dynamic content. It let me save the flow. This is a simple issue, often that people may figure it out, but I wanted to put it out there if someone run into this issue.
