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?

 

Thanks

Max

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,

Alice 

@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.

 

Thanks

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,

Alice
