Read-only error message when trying to Update an Item in SharePoint


I have a list with a required choice field.  When I update the item it fails to update that field, giving me a read-only error.


When you mouse over the choice field, I would expect to see body('Get_item')['fieldname']

instead I see outputs('Get_item')?['body/fieldname']


Is this what is causing the error?  If so, how do I fix it?


I tried that with choice field and it worked for me and was able to update the choice field, can you check the account permissions.

Hi @shaalan - I just made the account a site collection administrator and reran the flow and got the same error.
