Post message to new channel - ChannelID does not exist

Regular Contributor

Hello Everyone,

 

I have a requirement to create a channel at runtime dynamically and then once it is successful, post a message to the newly created channel using the Flow.

 

I have added two steps to handle this scenario and in second step i configured it to be executed after the success of channel creation & also set it to be synchronous operation.

 

Still, i get the below error - Can anyone suggest the possible solution for this issue.

 

{

  "error": {

    "code""InvalidRequest",

    "message""channelId needs to be a valid GUID.\r\nParameter name: channelId",

    "innerError": {

      "request-id""0831b19e-99d0-4102-835d-f0b186ec62d3",

      "date""2018-01-08T18:46:17"

    }

  }

}

 

 

Thanks & Regards,

Bhanu

I created test Flow to try this out and it worked fine for me. My Flow created a channel called "TestJeff" and then posted the msg "Test Channel Creation" in the newly created "TestJeff" channel. Here is how my Flow was set-up. I hope this helps.
