Condition, when field isn't empty

Hey,

 

 I want to create a flow, which is only executed if there is a value in a certain column.

Re: Condition, when field isn't empty

The Grouping of the condition was the mistake! But thank you

Re: Condition, when field isn't empty

Yes that should work.  Are you having a particular issue with the flow you presented?  YOu might also want to take a look at htis video.  Trigger conditions are now available that can limit when a Flow is actually triggered.

Re: Condition, when field isn't empty

If I run the flow and the column is empty, the flow is still sucessful.

Re: Condition, when field isn't empty

What type of field are you testing? Try changing the NULL to an "" to test for an empty string rather than a null.

Re: Condition, when field isn't empty

An element from the sharepoint list. If the element is not 0 then the flow should run sucessfully. "" doesn't work also

Re: Condition, when field isn't empty

Hi @Muni1996 

 

Try this as trigger condition

@not(equals(triggerBody()?['RunFlow'],null))

 

in my case column RunFlow is a single line of text field 

This expression will trigger Flow only when RunFlow column has a value

Re: Condition, when field isn't empty

Yes, but what data type is the column in the SharePoint list.  Some of the column types will never be null.  For example, a string will normally be an empty string and an integer will be zero.  If you test those for null it will fail
