How do I prevent flow being triggered repeatedly?

My Flow makes REST call and checks value of date inside JSON response and checks if it's within 1 day of current date. I want notification to be run exactly once time once condition is triggered. How do i do that without triggering repeating notifications after first instantiation of the flow?

I generally just need a flow to be triggered when contents of JSON is changed, it just happens to be that there is date specified inside JSON and I use it to figure out if it's new or not. Is there a better way to do it?

Hi @Anonymous,

 

Flow doesn’t persist any details between executions. If you want to track this state, it will need to be through another connector like SQL or Sharepoint or CDS or Google Sheets or something, basically anything that would allow saving and reading data.
