Flow is not running automatically. Will only run if I Edit and then Save.

I don't understand what's going on. My Flow was working fine, but now it simply does not get triggered. My initial trigger is when a Project is created on Project Online. The issue is the Flow never runs, it will only run if I edit it and then click save. Did I change something or is this a bug?

I don't think you have to recreate the whole Flow.  Just delete the Trigger and add a new copy of that Trigger from scratch.  Then make sure all the references are still valid and run that Flow.

There may have been an update to the Trigger that changed something behind the scenes.  Have you tried removing the trigger and re-adding it to see if the Flow trigger's correctly then?

I will try to recreate the Flow. But yeah, it's strange. I have a Flow from 4 days ago that runs normally, I made a clone of it and the bug is now affecting it's clone. When I cause the trigger (creating a project) only the old Flow runs, the new will only run if I click Edit and then Save.

I think this is a bug. I used a template and tried to test it out and it doesn't work. It will only when I click edit then save. This is an issue with the trigger that runs when a Project is created on Project Online.

I have the same scenario. Trigger is "When an item is created or modified" from SharePoint Online.

 

Is there a solution without deleting the trigger?

How long are you waiting after the trigger event?  MS is changing most of the triggers from being Webhooks to Polling.  That can mean that it will take up to a minute for a Trigger to fire off the Flow (5 minutes if you are using the Free Flow). Editing the Flow updates the Flow so it Polls as soon as you save it.  That's why editing it fires immediately. Give it some time.  If it doesn't fire after a minute or two double check the settings of the trigger.  If that doesn't work delete the trigger and recreate it.
