For a selected item (sharepoint) flow doesn't display in Flow/Automate dropdown on Library

Good morning,

 

I've seen similar posts to this but without resolution. This is the second time I've personally had this issue which is this: I create a flow from a template, the trigger is "For a selected item" in a SharePoint list. When finished, I save the flow and head over to the library, and the flow does not show up when selected an item and looking under my flows. 

 

Interestingly enough, if I add "Run Only Users" they will be able to see the flow, but I as the owner cannot.

 

I believe a work around is to create the flow from the library, which I will be trying soon. However, I'd like to see a fix released for this. If anyone knows of a fix / better workaround please share!

Hope this helps someone else, but the fix is to use the Library ID, not the name, in the "List Name" field. To get the ID, go to the Library Settings and check for it under the URL between List=%7B .... and %7D.

 

Thanks!

PS, the work around I suggested at the bottom of my post didn't work.
