Help, Flow does not triggered for Dynamics 365 Update record, in creation period

Hi,

 

I have a strange scenario here for Dynamics 365 and Flow.

I create a Flow, which is triggered when a record in Dynamics 365 is updated.

 

It will be triggered, if I manually update the record later.

However, when the record is created, it is updated several times backend, by Dynamics 365 workflow or JavaScript, but no flow is triggered.

 

I can see in the Audit History, just after record is created, it is updated several times in short period.

No Flow is triggered.

 

Later, come back to record form, run any workflow or manually update any field for the record.

The Flow will be triggered.

 

 

Are there any conditions, such as only trigger Flow, after 1 mimute of creation, if the trigger is Update?

Hope my explaination is clear.

Thanks a lot for any help.

 

Regards,

Zhenyu

Picture 1: Create and Update several Times, Flow does not triggered

Picture 2: Come to Dynamics 365 record and manually update record

Picture 3: Flow is ONLY triggered by manually update in Picture 2

I also have this issue, any workaround?

Hi RyanMesser,

 

For now, I just put 2 minutes wait condition in the workflow, then trigger the update.

It works.

 

In future, I am thinking, create a middle entity record, save all informatin needed.

Then trigger the Flow on the creation of that middle entity record.

Unfouratnetly the workflow is a real time workflow which I don't think you can put wait conditions in?

I'm starting a child workflow from within the processs that runs first of when a case is created that makes Flow think its been updated but its a bit of a strange limiation in my opinion.
