App variable update not propagated

Hi, I have the use case that I regularily update the access token for bearer authentication in the global canvas and use that token to fetch data in on different pages. This is how I fetch data on my list page to get a collection of data entries:


This is the way I access the token inside the get record collection flow

Now, the problem is that whenever the token gets updated from the global canvas, the “get record collection” flow still uses the initial token and not the updated one. Even if I add an additional event receiver flow that listens to the token change and triggers the “get record collection” flow, it still uses the old value. So I assume the change to the global app variable is not propagated properly to other pages. Do I need to do something in order to make the propagation work or is this a bug?

can you share an image where you set the app variable in the global page ?

Where the assigned value of “set app variable” is this formula:

outputs["PARSE REFRESH TOKEN RESPONSE"].data.access_token

i remember i had the same problem in the past, i would suggest you put a toast in the end of your logic and see if the logic works successfully, if not i think threes a problem populating the variable in the global canvas

If I do this the toast shows me the old token. So it seems like the set app variable flow is not overwriting the previous value.

Wow, I just deleted the connection between the “get data” flow and the “parse refresh token response flow” and reconnected it and all of a sudden it is working.

Anyway, thanks for sharing your thoughts @Dimos_Vamvourellis
