“Maximum Flow versions reached” error

We are unable to do any deployments with Bitbucket Pipelines because of the following error message: “Maximum Flow versions reached”. The flow that is erroring is not even being updated. The flow that is erroring has 10 versions and we are on a Salesforce Enterprise license. We tried deleting an old version of the flow but still receiving the same error message.


Can anyone make any recommendation of the possible cause of the issue.

Hey @Florian Lungu , welcome to the Atlassian Community.

This sounds more like a Salesforce related thingy to me, at least on configuration level but I'm not firm with it.

You write that the number versions does not match with your plan so this might be something related to authentication. But again guessing.

Is this a new setup? Or was it running for months if not years?

And maybe you have an idea what could be problematic in the setup on Bitbucket Pipelines, maybe that gives some ropes to pull.
