Flow Automate Approval does not work anymore in SharePoint Libraries

In July, I have created a number of approvals flow, that is related to the SharePoint library. I have tested them and they were working like a charm. But now I am testing them again and there are not working anymore. The Flows were about approval for creating a file/ folder in a library also deleting file or folder. 

Some of the flows show this error (Cannot read property 'properties' of undefined)

Below, is an example for one of my flows for approval of creating a folder in a library

Hi @Fatimah_33 


Can you share a screenshot of the action where you are seeing this error? Is it while selecting the file or the folder metadata etc? In such cases most times these issues can be due to caching. You might want to delete the current connection (from the connections tab) and create a new one to SharePoint. If it still does not work, you may try logging out of the current session, close all browser windows and start a fresh session. 


Hope this Helps!

I have logged out from my account, I cannot see the error again. But still, the flow is not working. When I create a folder in the library no trigger starting from the flow!!

Find the flow for my task, let me know if am doing something wrong. @yashag2255 

on the first step when a file is created I have added Trigger Conditions to check if it is a folder @equals(triggerBody()?['IsFolder'], true)
