Can't reactivate Strava

Describe the problem/error/question

I’m trying to update a workflow that is triggered by Strava. The issues started when I tried to move the Strava trigger to a different workflow in an attempt to create a ‘router’ for logged Strava activities. When attempting to save the new workflow I received the error below. I’ve since abandoned that idea, in favour of just getting the original one working again - but am now unable to save my original workflow.

Note the code below shows a webhook trigger - this was a test. I only want to use a Strava trigger here.

What is the error message (if any)?

Strava Trigger: 400 - {"message":"Bad Request","errors":[{"resource":"PushSubscription","field":"subscription","code":"already exists"}]} - Bad Request

Please share your workflow

Hi @Tom_Anderson1, welcome to the community!

I am sorry you are having trouble. I suspect that n8n has not managed to remove the webhook subscription in the scenario you have described and Strava is now blocking the creation of a new one.

In a first step, could you try manually viewing your existing subscriptions and then remove the existing ones as suggested by Strava in their docs?

Let me know if you’re still having trouble with activating your workflow afterwards.

Thanks! I’ve been able to remove the old subscription and reactivate. Hopefully it will now work!
