Forbidden 403 when trying to "Put a message on a queue".

Category: azure logic apps

I have setup a simple Logic App that is using the "Azure Queues - Put a message on a queue (preview)" action.   I have setup the connection (Connection Name, Storage Account Name, Shared Storage Key), and the action connects and then shows me a list of queues that I have available in the "Queue name" dropdown which I would think indicates I have configured the connection correctly.

However, when the Logic App is triggered the "Put a message on a queue" action fails with a Forbidden 403.  I have verified that if I use the same "Shared Storage Key" in the Azure Storage Explorer tool, I can see the queues and can create messages in them without an issue.   I have read online that this 403 can be caused if the time zone of the calling system is configured to use a different time zone, but I am not sure how I would control that or if it is even related to my problem.

Thanks for any help,


Update 2/7/2017:  I have configured the exact same action in "Flow" instead of "Logic Apps" and it works fine there.   One thing noteworthy, is that in "Flow" the "Put a message on a queue" does not say "(preview)" like it does in "Logic Apps.

I've got the same problem. Using Flow instead of Logic Apps is no feasible solution to me. It would be great to hear a solution to the Problem. To me it seems to be random. Some times I succeed in putting a message to the queue, most times I don't with a 403 response.
