I met a error as "items are nested at level '9' which exceeds the maximum nesting limit of '8'." in power automate flow.

Would you please tell me how to solve this issue in details?

 

Thank you very much in advance:)

Hi @Jackywei_BDF,

 

That means you probably have a lot of nested condition actions in your current flow setup 😁. The limit for nesting is 8. 

 

You can solve this by either combining conditions. Use expressions instead of condition actions. Or even use child flows to break down the logic.

 

Can you share your current flow setup? This way we can probably give you some pointers to reduce the number of nesting levels.



Happy to help out! 🙂

Hi:

Yes, here you are.

I need to filter table and find user's manager ,it is manager level1;

if his manager is not in list, then i will filter table to find his manager's manager;

if it is not in the table, i iwll filter table to find third level manager.

 

After i get his mananger, i will send approval to him first, then i will send approval to specific person for second approval, them i will send third approval to someone.

 

So you will get picture for filter condition as following. Once i get manager , i will send three level approvals for this branch,  but if i don't find out , i will filter table to find manager's manager, .......

At the end , if i can't find anything from table for three level ,i will send error email to tell  user to contact HR.

So it means  i have four branch flows totally and each branch  i have three level approvals

Do you understand my question now?

 

Would you please fix this issue for me?

I'm going to try and replace my conditions with a switch function.
