Accessing a lookup that refers to the same list

I have a list that holds all the positions in the office. One column is a lookup to the same list it refers to whom that person is supervised by. There are a couple of other lookups that refer to other lists. Those OTHER lookups appear in Power Automate, but the one that refers back to the same list does not. Does anybody know if this is a true limitation to Power Automate? Or could there be some setting I don't know about to make this happen?

Hello @klaw-sha 

Could you provide screenshots of your issue? What action has the issue? How does the dynamic content popup look like?

Also could you provide the name of the lookup column that point back to itself?

We have a list with organization units which also lookups to itself, twice even, and those lookup columns do show up!

Kind regards, John

Hi John
