Power Automate - Triggering action if ONE specific file changes on SharePoint

Is there a way to trigger an action in Power Automate when just one specific file in SharePoint gets modified? At the moment I have the situation that 6 files are updated at once, so the same action is triggered 6 times in a row.

I use the trigger "When an item is created or modified". There I can only adjust the SharePoint site name and the list (library) of files to monitor.

Hi @PlayerOne ,

 

As suggested by @efialttes , you could refer to the following image to configure trigger conditions:

This expression also works for When an item is created or modified.

Please take a try and feel free to let us know if you have any other questions.

Re: Power Automate - Triggering action if ONE specific file changes on SharePoint

Under certain circumstances... yes, you can!

Add a condition action block just after the trigger to verify if file that triggered the flow is the one(s) you want to monitor, and add a terminate action block on the false branch. Once this is running according to your expectations, you can move this condition to the trigger settings, so the flow will only be executed under this condition. More info here:
