Copying Action in automation with problems

I copied an action “create record” with a lot of fields and converted it into an “update collected”. All went fine, except for fields, that were phone number fields, e-mail fields or URL fields. Although they appeared to be correctly selected, they needed to be clicked once to “reconnect”. Otherwise there were errors in automation.


That was not the case for plain text fields - they were connected right away.

I’ve seen this same issue when copying automations. The variables appear to be in place correctly in the copied flow. However just as @dirk_s described, there is an error in flow execution unless each variable is clicked on and ‘reconnected’ in the new flow.

Same happens, when only duplicating an existing field to e.g. clear it before setting it.
