Sharepoint List -> Azure DevOps Work item - When an item is created or modified - the modify creates a new work item every time

Hello all,


I have build a new flow where, when a Sharepoint List Item is created it creates an Azure DevOps work item.  That works great - but when we test modifying the original Sharepoint List Item it creates a NEW Azure DevOps work item.  Is there a way to link the two so that changes to the original Sharepoint List Item are made to the original Azure Devops work it

First compare Modified and Created fields from triggerBody.  If Modified = Created or Modified is blank (I'm not sure about SharePoint Lists particular field behavior), then it's a create event.  If Modified is later than Created, then it's definitely an update event.  So insert a condition step to differentiate the two.


Alternatively, if you are only interested to run your flow when an item is created, then use the trigger "When an Item is Created" instead.


Also, you might want to know that there is another trigger called "When an Item or file is modified"
