Is it possible to trigger the flow with choice condition not restricted to any choice option in it?

Hi all,
 
I have a question where I am stuck.
So I need to trigger a power automate flow with trigger “Sharepoint item is modified” and a condition for a choice column
Now the choice column I want to add in the trigger condition is a lookup choice column for users so I don’t want to specify or restrict the condition with any particular choice options but instead I just want to trigger the flow when someone changes that choice column, regardless of choice it can trigger the flow.
 
Is it possible to trigger the flow with choice condition not restricted to any choice option in it?
Can anyone help me here?
 
Thanks in advance

Just check if this will work with lookup or specific to your scenario

Hi @AkshaySolanki 

 

I assume you're looking to process flow when something changes on choice column alone.

If user changes choice column value you get true as bool output which you can use for further processing.

I did use trigger conditions in lot of my flows but as I mention, I have to trigger a flow for a choice column update but not restricted to any specific choices as I have multiple of them so have to make sure, anytime a user updates the choice column, it has to trigger the flow

because I have other flows triggering for the same sharepoint list update, I need a specific trigger condition related to this scenario too.

Hi ,

 

Following tutorial from this youtube video you posted, I am getting the change properties but it is failing at Send HTTP request connector with an error message like "Input string was not in a correct format."

Even though I used the correct format from the video
