Flow continuously running

Hi All -


I have a flow running against a CDS entity.


Flow: When a record is updated in CDS Entity update a field.


My flow works but it keeps running continuously on the existing record. (No updates has been done to the record)


Any solutions or ideas on how to fix this issue?

Hi @MaxTampa1,


Do you update the same record when a record is updated to trigger the flow?


If yes, the flow would continuously run and couldn't stop since the record is update continuously.


So please don't add a "Update a record" action under the trigger "When a record is updated". Or you could add a condition under the trigger to prevent the continuously update.


Best regards,


@v-yuazh-msft , Hi Alice?


what condition would work to accomplish "Or you could add a condition under the trigger to prevent the continuously update."


UseCase: I have three fields [ Name Number Last Name] in my data set. the dynamic field is "Last Name". in this record the Last name can be initially blank, contain the last name, last name changes.


In dynamics 365 I could not do a calculated column on multiline text fields so I am trying with flow.




Hi @MaxTampa1,


I need to know what would be updated in the record when a record is updated to trigger the flow.


Please share the full screenshot of the Configuration of your flow, which including the trigger and the "Update a record" action.


Best regards,
