Conflict updating SharePoint list items due to parallel flow

Hello,

 

I have a flow where there is a part that has a parallel branch. in both branches there is a possibility that the same share point item get's updated. If this happens to be at the same time, then a conflict might arise. Some of my flow-runs have failed due to such a  conflict" error. Is there a best practice of checking if an items is being edited, and if so, wait with updating?

 

Thank you for your help!

 

regards

Charles

Hello @Charles-v-D ,

I'd add a 'Delay' action for 5 minutes in both of the branches that would run after the 'Update' action if it has failed, and after the 'Delay' I'd repeat the update. The idea is that if there's saving conflict, one branch will do the update, the other will fail. So the one that will fail will wait for 5 minutes and then do update again.
