Check for existing running flow for an item



May i know if there is a working solution to check if there is a running flow for an specific item? Can we check it using REST? Or do we have any alternative solution? I have a requirement to check for an existing flow running for an item, if there is a running flow then we will not allow another flow to run, else if there is none then we proceed.

Hi @karl_oliverio ,


If you want to check for an existing running flow for an item, I am afraid there is no direct way can do so.


If a flow is using SharePoint trigger “For a selected item”, we could know that there is a flow for the list on SharePoint site by selecting an item.


If you are familiar with Rest API, please take a try with it. More details about custom connectors in MS Flow for your reference:


Further, if you need this feature to be out-of-box, please feel free post it on Flow Ideas Forum at here:


Best regards,
