Stop flow after first true condition inside 'Do Until'

Hi all,

 

I have a flow with a 'Do Until' control with an incrementing integer set to '72'.

Within the 'Do Until' control, I have a condition control looking for a 'Name' match with a concatenation of a string combined with the integer.

 

There will only ever be 1 match out of the potential 72 in any run.

 

What I'd like to work out is a way to stop my flow after it finds the first true condition (after it runs the actions beneath the true condition).

 

I understand I can't use the Terminate action with a 'Do Until' tree, but is there something else I can do to stop it running?

Breakdown of the Flow

 

  • User exports a pdf with the automatically generated naming convention of '********'_Page021.pdf into Sharepoint Doc library.
  • Flow triggers when document is created or modified.
  • Flow gets file properties.
  • Flow gets file content
  • Flow initializes integer variable starting at 0.
  • Flow 'Does Until' Integer equals 72.
  • Flow Increments variable by 1.
  • Flow searches for condition - uploaded file name contains concat('_Page00', variables('Integer'), '_') - or '_Page0' if it finds no match.
  • Upon condition true, Flow Creates a File in a different library folder - 'Page(Current Integer)'.pdf.

*Then a couple more steps encased in the true condition not relevant to the question.*

I find I'm needing to ask increasingly complicated questions, so apologies, and thanks in advance to anyone who can assist!

 

Cheers, Chris.

Hi @cfebvre ,

 

You could use Set variable action directly to set the variable value to 72 and the loop will end.

 

Please take a try.
