    The staff stated that the bug is being tracked and will be solved before the general availability. 


    The preview release will have bugs, the best thing we can do today is to submit any feedback including bug reporting.

    Any update, I am still have this issue while using (chatbot preview) with MS Team

    In the preview, Teams support was a late added feature and may still have some issues.  We are currently tracking this item as a bug in the preview slated to be fixed before GA.

    I'm having a similar issue. My authorization is set as 'Only for Teams'. I created an action where the User.DisplayName is used to search for user details with power automate, however when published I get this error in automate 

    The 'inputs.parameters' of workflow operation 'Get_user_profile_(V2)' of type 'OpenApiConnection' is not valid. Error details: The resolved string values for the following parameters are invalid, they may not be null or empty: 'id'

    when checking the input parameter it says this

    {"error":{"code":"AuthorizationFailed","message":"The authentication credentials are not valid."}}
