Adding an Update item step at the end breaks the flow

I have a "Complete a custom action for a selected item" flow for a SharePoint task list. Here's how it's supposed to run:

  1. For a selected item trigger
  2. Get item (the selected item)
  3. Create item on a another list
  4. Update item: Update one yes/no field on the original list containing the selected item.

This flow works just fine if it only includes Steps 1-3 as shown below.

A successful 3 step flow.A successful 3 step flow.

 

However, when I add the last Update item step, the flow suddenly stops working at step 2 with the following error message: 

The API 'sharepointonline' returned an invalid response for workflow operation 'Get_item' of type 'OpenApiConnection'. Error details: 'The API operation 'GetItem' is missing required property 'body/Title'.' 

The flow fails at step 2 after adding the Update item step at the end.The flow fails at step 2 after adding the Update item step at the end.

 

Any ideas? I do not understand how adding step 4 can suddenly break step 2 or interfere with the information from step 1 when it was working before step 4 was added?

By the way, all required fields are filled in the Update item step.

Hi @rlengacher,

 

I tested it on my side but not find the issue. Could you please have a try that deletes the action then recreate it again?
