Does "Terminate" Stop the whole flow.... or just a branch of it?

Does the terminate control end the flow no matter where it is? Or, can you use it to only terminate a branch of the flow (say you have a branch set up to send a reminder Email if a condition if not met... if the condition is met you'd want to "terminate" that reminder branch of the flow but leave the rest of the flow to continue). 

 

Thanks

Re: Does "Terminate" Stop the whole flow.... or just a branch of it?

Hi @CP153319,

 

Do you want to stop a branch of your flow using the "Terminate" action?

 

I have made a test on my side, the "Terminate" action would end the whole flow no matter where it is. If you want to stop a branch of your flow, I afraid that there is no way to achieve your needs in Microsoft Flow currently.

 

If you would like this feature to be added in Microsoft Flow, please submit an idea to Flow Ideas Forum:

Re: Does "Terminate" Stop the whole flow.... or just a branch of it?

I have been experiencing different results.

I have a flow that uses a terminate if a condition is true.

The flow analyzer shows that all subsequent actions are "cancelled" and they appear with an "x" next to them.  The weird thing is that they all still EXECUTE.

 

All the remaining steps in the flow run, even though the flow analyzer shows them as not running.

 

I know this because I receive emails and see the results of subsequent actions like "Create Task" and "Update Item" that supposedly did not run.

 

Any comment on this?

Thanks,

That is really interesting. Maybe try setting the "Terminate" function choices to "Failed" and then configure the next action after it to run only if the Terminate action "Succeeded".
