Power Automate: Sharepoint missing fields on get list item


I have a flow, triggered by PowerApps, that gets a sharepoint list item to obtain some values in order to complete the flow.

This flow has been working with no problem for some time (several weeks) but suddenly started to fail.

Looking at the run info I realized that one of the needed fields was not arriving to the flow making one step fail.

Curiously, after looking deeper on what the flow got from Sharepoint I saw that the json read contained the missing field so it seems that it's not reading properly the Sharepoint list fields structure.

After looking at what some other people has written similarly to my problem I think that the origin of the problem is that the Sharepoint list contains 94 fields (yes, I know there are a lot).

Ok, following someone's advice I created a view for my list containing only the fields that I need for the flow and the result is that not only my field is still missing but I'm also getting some fields that are not in the view.

Of course, I tried the usual tricks like removing and recreating connections in the flow, export and import, creating the flow from scratch,... with no result.

Any ideas on how to fix this problem?

Best regards

Just wondering whether or not the missing field either got renamed or deleted and recreated? As for the extra fields in the view: mandatory fields and (if I'm not mistaken) list lookup fields always are included, at least in the SharePoint Update actions.
