Flow runs continuously

Hello,

 

I created a flow that allows me to retrieve the link of a piece and note it in the corresponding column.

The flow is triggered when a data is created or modified.

Then update this data.

 

Conclusion the flow is executed continuously. How to make it only executes once?

Hi @Aurélien,

 

Hi @nilesp,

 

You can determine whether to create and update time by adding a condition is the same,

-If the same, is a new item, then continue the next steps.

-If not the same, it is the previously created files.

So that you can avoid subsequent updates in the new item of the item to trigger the flow again.Annotation 2019-06-18 143102.png

 

I hope it can help you. If you still have questions, please contact us.

Hi @Aurélien,

 

Maybe you can use the approach of this thread, only trigger it when a specific field is updated:

Your update item sets off the When an item is created or modified trigger again, which is what creates your loop. You have a few options for how you can work around this.

What works best for you, really depends on your Flow, data, and environment.
