I have an auto launched flow that I would like to just ignore the errors of if they occur.

I currently have several fault connectors going to a dummy assignment. However I keep receiving error emails which is what I am trying to avoid.

  • You are probably looking for this. help.salesforce.com/…. You will need to setup an email to receive the exception emails.

  • Hi, thank you but I have an email setup. I am trying to not receive the emails. Basically I want the flow to handle the exception so that if it fails nothing really happens. I'm not sure if this is possible though.

Bizarrely to handle this you simply need to make sure the fault and success responses are sent to the same subsequent flow element, like this:

Routing the fault and success responses

Once you do this you will find that no exception emails are sent and you can handle the errors appropriately within the flow itself (such as with an "ErrorScreen" as shown here). You can test "{!$Flow.FaultMessage}" to see if it is empty to decide on whether to show the error screen.

UPDATE: Based on comments it seems this doesn't work in some scenarios. I need to go check see if it is still working for our defined flows at some point!

    +1 That's useful to know. Should be in the docs.

  • For what it's worth, I tried exactly this on a Platform Event triggered flow where I handle the fault. And it still sends the darn email that I don't want it to send.
