I have been creating flows using this trigger and I think there's a bug.
To do the steps below you'll need a model-driven app with the Account entity included to validate the behavior.
These steps result in failure for me:
These steps result in success for me:
Anyone also observing something similar?
This is driving me insane at the moment - flows with the CDS selected record trigger not appearing.
Another observation is that any time you leave a flow with the selected record trigger, you get the message about your changes not being saved.
It definitely looks like the when a record is selected step should never be renamed.
The rename step is greyed out after first save and a 'Rename is not supported for this step' popup appears.
Aha, I hadn't clicked on the little "i". Yeah, I'm not sure if my steps above totally reproduce an error... I'm just seeing annoying behavior now where a Flow may or may not show up in the app - sometimes it shows up the next day and sometimes never. That can't be the intended behavior.
I will say this for anyone working with these: do NOT build a Flow past the first action until it shows up in the app.
Yep - with the 'When a record is selected' trigger, here is my current get it working steps:
Really, what we need is the 'When a record is selected' trigger to be added to the CDS (current environment) list.
I have found out that if when creating the flow I rename the Record is selected trigger then I don't see the flow appear for triggering in the model driven app. Even when left overnight.
If I delete the trigger and re-add without renaming then save the flow I see it available for triggering in the model driven app.
It seems we can not rename the Record is selected trigger.
