Unable to save the dataflow.

Re: dataflow linked entities



Unfortunately, logs are not stored that long (the error occured in November). Is it still reproducible?


However, accroding to your description, you are attempting to link to between a dataflow to itself, which is considered as a circular dependency and therefor not allowed.

The error message reflecting this needs to be updated.
