Flow and renamed lists

Bronze Contributor

Hello, I have an issue with a flow that was created before a Listname was updated/changed. I got a 404 error. So I recreated the flow, because I assumed it had to do with the rename. But then I got the same error.


  "status": 404,
  "message": "List '<listname' does not exist at site with URL 'https://<tenantname>.sharepoint.com/sitename'.",
  "source": "https://<tenantname>.sharepoint.com/sitename/_api/web/lists/getbytitle('list%20name')/Items?$expand=<columnname>,Author,Editor&$select=*,<columnname>/Name,Author/Name,Editor/Name&$orderby=ID%20desc&$top=1",
  "errors": [

I follow the habit to create a list and name it without spaces or special characters to make the URL look better. Then I go the list settings and update the name (url stays the same). 

Is it possible that Flow is looking for the current list name, but can't find it as an URL?

That is probable since the name appears to have a space in your screen shot, and I believe that Flow uses internal names to find the lists referenced in the flow. I will try and repro to see if I can confirm your assumption.
