Flow starts only after edit/save



I've seen that this question has already been discussed in this forum, but I can't find a way to solve the problem.


I've a flow that should triggers when a new file is created on SharePoint, but it starts only when I edit/save the flow.


This can't be the correct way to execute the flow. I've tried to recrete the flow, tried to export/import and started the Trial period of Power Automate to see if something changes. But every try has failed.


I've noticed that this behaviour is quite common. With other accounts in different tenants I've many flows that suffer the same problem.


Am I doing something wrong?


This is my flow right now:



Super User

@Pepozzo if you could post a screenshot of your flow that might help  identify whether there's a problem somewhere.

Los Gallardos

@RobElliott sorry. I've added a screenshot of my flow in the first post.

Hi @Pepozzo 


I haven't really come across that issue but here are a few things that I would recommend: 1. Can you check if these flows were created as copies or from templates? In such a case you can try deleting the trigger of the flow and it back to check if you continue to face the same issues. 

2. You might also want to delete the current connection to SharePoint from the connectors and add it back so that the connection is recreated and refreshed. 


Hope this Helps!
