Set content approval - 1 retries occured

Hello everyone,

 

I have an issue on Set content approval status. I tried to solve this problem while checking previous topics but still It doesn't run well.

 

First of all, I have a list on SharePoint and I want to approve expenditure requests by using this flow. But I didn't figure out the relationship between Get file metada and ETag. Probably, this relationship is the answer for me.

When the flow is started, It returns me an error that is 1 retries occured.

Hi @Anonymous 

Please take a try without setting ETag field, because you only operate on the list item.

When add a new item in the list trigger the flow.

After flow runs, the Approval Status will be changed to Approved.

Please use Outcome to check the final approval response:

Even if I used "outcome" instead of "response" it still returns as 1 retries occured.

 

You can see my current flow basically below.

This is my demo SharePoint Library called Library B

The SharePoint Library B has the following settings:

This is the flow that is triggered on the creation of a new file in Library B:

Start and Wait for an approval:

If approved, the SharePoint file status is changed to Approve:

Here is the run time history of the flow:

After approval:

Hope this helps.

It is very clear and simple explanation but still it doesn't run well 😞 

 

My list settings are same as you but we have a difference that I work on list instead of library.

 

So, my list and my flow are like;

content1.pngcontent2.pnglist1.png

 

I think the problem is caused by ID.

It would be two or three but I've never seen it as 1

It's still not working. I copied your flow and tested. May it causes by permissions or something like that?
