Microsoft Flow’s Todoist connector is broken, no workaround available

Microsoft Flow is a free tool that can automate some routine operations, like automatically adding calendar events, forwarding emails, and so on. I have been using it for many years now, since it just launched. And Todoist connector is one of my most used building blocks.

Unfortunately it recently stopped working. Todoist developers deprecated legacy API and Microsoft didn’t update the connector in time. Now all the jobs are failing with this error:

Action 'Create_a_task' failed
Error Details: The response is not in a JSON format.

{
  "error": {
    "code": 410,
    "source": "flow-apim-msmanaged-na-centralus-01.azure-apim.net",
    "clientRequestId": "fa463f14-500d-4ca2-8350-e4f4646ab93a",
    "message": "The response is not in a JSON format.",
    "innerError": "<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC \"-//W3C//DTD HTML 3.2 Final//EN\">\n<title>410 Gone</title>\n<h1>Gone</h1>\n<p>This API endpoint is no longer available. Please refer to our documentation to upgrade your client to use the latest API version: https://developer.todoist.com</p>\n"
  }
}

Fix: no, ETA: no

There is no fix or a workaround that I am aware of. I have reported the issue here: https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/I-Found-A-Bug/Todoist-connector-no-longer-working-due-to-the-API-endpoint/m-p/355721#M5216

It was acknowledged, but there is no information whether the fix is in progress or when it should be deployed.

Do you use Microsoft Flow? What is your workflow setup? Please share it in comments.

    • yeah, I’m actually surprised how they let it happen. API deprecation was planned long time ago (blog post was in 2018). And Todoist connector is THE thing that helps me to keep my personal inbox happy & clean
