Column has Changed condition is failing

I have a Flow that checks for the change in a status field (EvalStatus). If true it should run thru a Switch, if false it should cancel.

 

For some reason true values are going thru as false.  Things I have tried to fix this so far:

  • Delete and re-add ColumnHasChanged value in condition
  • Delete ColumnHasChanged value from condition, Rename Get Changes, re-add ColumnHasChanged
  • Using plain text 'true' (without quotes) in Condition
  • Using 'true' expression in Condition
  • Deleting and re-creating Condition (hence the different Condition names in the screenshot below)

 

Any ideas? FWIW, I have this exact same check and condition, even with the same column title, in another list and Flow and it works fine with plain text true.

Hello @edbellman ,

did you try to put a 'Compose' action before the condition with the 'Has column changed....' dynamic content? Then you'll see in the flow history what value that dynamic content has, maybe it's not passed correctly.

I also tried it one of my flow and the dynamic content format looks different, which is strange...

Hey @tom_riha , thanks for the reply.

 

I just tried the Compose step and it didn't seem to make a difference but did confirm true was being passed thru. I tried with both text and function versions of true in my condition.

That said, is there a limit to how many nested conditions you can have? This one is the fourth one down (so inside of three above nested conditions) if that would have any bearing.

 

Thanks again, Ed

Try with 1 instead of true, as an experiment.
