Delete SharePoint list item deletes matching Sharepoint Calendar event

Dear all,
I have a leave request flow (not the one I'm having trouble with) that create a calendar event on a sharepoint calendar when a request is approved. The flow gives the calendar event the same ID as the list item.
My other flow that I'm trying to set up to delete the calendar event if the list item is deleted.
The condition is currently not triggering, what am I doing wrong?

Är lika med = Is equal to.
Happy to answer any questions.

Re: Delete SharePoint list item deletes matching Sharepoint Calendar event

 

Hi @KarlB ,

 

What is the type of the new column used to record the ID?

The type of the ID field is Number. If it needs to be compared with it, the type of the other parameter in Condition must also be number.

You can use the int () function to convert the parameter value to the left of the Condition to an integer.

Re: Delete SharePoint list item deletes matching Sharepoint Calendar event

@KarlB 

I am a little confused when you say that you give the calendar item the same ID as the list item.  IDs cannot be assigned to SharePoint list items - they are internally generated by SharePoint.  Do you mean to say the you have an additional column in the calendar where you store the ID of the list item?  Please let me know and I will provide an example.

 

If I have answered your question, please mark your post as Solved.

Re: Delete SharePoint list item deletes matching Sharepoint Calendar event

Excuse me for being unclear.
But, yes

You are exactly right. I have created a new column in the calendar where I store the ID of the list item (generated by SharePoint).

Karl
