Check if an item exists on a SharePoint list

Hi Folks,


I'm trying to create a flow that creates a list item in SP when a record in Dynamics meets a specific stage. The problem I am having is when it try to make the flow check if the item already exists it doesn't seem to work???

Wondering where I am going wrong as it keeps recreating the item?

Thanks 🙂

Re: Check if an item exists on a SharePoint list

Hi Blair,


I have seen a documentation about Workflow Definition Language, please check this link for more details:

From this documentation, we know that we can use Empty function to return true if object, array or string is empty.
According to this, I created a flow to send an email when a column is empty. I configured the Condition in Advanced mode, please see below for more details:



Please try it on your side to see if it works for you.


Best regards,

Re: Check if an item exists on a SharePoint list



Hi Mabel,


I would need it to check if a 10 digit number already exists within the list?

I've tried using equals, but it doesn't seem to work?
