My flow but simplified:
Okay first - what is happening here:
'Populate 1' picks a 'Template.docx'
'Create file' creates a file 'MyFile.docx' with 'Populate 1' in SharePoint
If 'Create file' was succesful:
'HTTP Post 1' is a Azure Function. It loads 'MyFile.docx' edits it and overwrites 'MyFile.docx' in SharePoint.
If 'Create file' was unsuccesful (in this case 'MyFile.docx does already exist):
'HTTP Post 2' does exactly the same thing as 'HTTP Post 1'.
'Populate 2' picks 'MyFile.docx'
'Update file' updates 'MyFile.docx' with 'Populate 2'.
If I run this flow twice (first run creates 'MyFile.docx' - second run updates it) 10 times 'Populate 2' will fail and succeed an unpredictable number of time.
Now another weird thing: If the flow terminates after 'Create file' and I run it again for the Update-Case 'Populate 2' seems to work without problems so far.
Putting a Delay between 'Create file' and 'HTTP Post 1' won`t change the fact that 'Populate 2' might end in an error.
