‘NestedWorkflowDoesNotContainResponseAction’ error is an issue that can occur when using Power Automate with child flows. It occurs when there is a child flow that is triggered from within a main flow, but the child flow does not contain a response action. This means that the main flow will not receive the output of the child flow, and the main flow won’t be able to continue as intended. To fix this issue, you will need to add a response action to the child flow, so that the main flow can receive the output of it.
