If Sharepoint document library field is set to required, will that apply to items already in the Flow?

Hello,

 

We have a Sharepoint Online document library with a large amount of items.  For future items, there is a metadata field that we would like to make as a required entry.  Will changing the field to Required in the document library settings interrupt any documents currently in the Flow associated with this library?

 

Thank you,

Marty

Hi @plinth857 

 

If the flow is created for the list before the field is set to required, it wouldn't affect the flow.

It depends on what the Flow is doing, but I just did a quick test and had no issues.  I created a flow that updates a column in a library.  The library has two additional text columns.  I ran the Flow which updated the first column and it ran with success.  I then made the second column required and ran the Flow again.  Even though I did not supply data fro the required column, my Flow ran without error.  That said, I would run some tests on another library before you implement the required column.
