ID required in ADD ROW to SQL - how do i send null for SQL to assign the ID

I have been using flow for about a year on the same sql table.  When an item is added in a different location the trigger is supposed to add a new row to the sql table.  It has been working great for some time.


Now, recently, it is wanting me to assign the ID to the new row in SQL, which historically, it creates the ID on it's own.


is this a setting in SQL that someome may have changed, or is this a change in FLOW?  is there a way to get the max id form SQL and add 1?  or is there a better solution?

Re: ID required in ADD ROW to SQL - how do i send null for SQL to assign the ID

Hi ,


Oddly, I did not require assign ID to the new row in SQL when using Insert row.
Can you share your Flow? This ID is required to be added by itself, or the system will automatically generate a unique ID.
If you want to get Max id, you may try to use Get rows to get all the ids, then store them in an array variable, and then get the maximum value in the array with max() function.
This value should be max id.
Maybe you can try it.
