I'm reposting this with a slightly different view to see if this gets a bit of traction. I have a Power Automate flow that is set to trigger when a row is 'Added, Modified or Deleted' with 'Update' set as the Change Type. When a record changes the flow is running multiple times (sometimes up to 25 times) as the record is modified.
I have tried adding status codes as a filter and have managed to get this down to 2 - 3 for each time the flow triggers, but I can see a scenario where this could be bypassed.
What I need is a single change that I can use as a trigger for a single flow run. I have tried to replicate the
Workflow trigger, but even this doesn't seem to do the job properly. I want to try and avoid a timed run and have something happen in real time, but I have to ensure I send a single notification rather than 20+.
Has anyone else run into this scenario?
You can add trigger condition for Power automate, to trigger only on particular status.
Also check if you have any other flows/ workflows/ plugins that run and create loop for your power automate.
If this helps, please mark this answer as solution.
So we have a field - 'statuscode' and I added a trigger condition @equals(triggerBody()?['statuscode'], 939310003) which all makes sense. The problem is that my flow is being triggered multiple times and each time the statuscode is 939310003 as it's not the change of status that is triggering the flow run. This means that the trigger condition is met multiple times and I get multiple notifications. I haven't yet been able to find a way to get the trigger to fire once only when the status changes and not any other time when other fields change.
I had this issue but found that setting the filter row and specifying the column stopped it triggering multiple times.
