Error when creating a DataFlow Gen2 using a DataFlow as a source



trying to create a DataFlow Gen2 which consumes a DataFlow Gen2 I get the following error:

---------- Message ----------
Expression.Error: We can't convert values of this type to JSON.

---------- Session ID ----------

---------- Request ID ----------

---------- Mashup script ----------
section Section1;
shared Query = let
Source = PowerPlatform.Dataflows([])


Any clue what's behind that?

but which JSON? I'm not working with any JSON (as a source or destination) so I guess it's the JSON behind the Data Flow definition. But I didn't touch that JSON, it was created by the Data Flow... For me it looks like a bug?!




Hi @TePe 

It appears that what you are getting from the Power Apps is in a JSON format?
