No CDS trigger for when a new record is OR when a new record is updated. How to get around this?

I can't find a CDS trigger in Flow equivalent to the SharePoint ‘When an item is created or modified’ trigger. Can I just use two separate triggers i.e. When a record is created AND When a record is updated?

 

I need to reference columns of the newly created/updated record later in the Flow. Can I just reference both and one will win out as it were?

 

Or should I just duplicate the Flow with the two different triggers?

Re: No CDS trigger for when a new record is OR when a new record is updated. How to get around this?

Hi @Digital 

 

There are no single trigger for created or modified similar like SharePoint. It would have been good 🙂 Like you mentioned the only option is create two separate flows. If you got similar logic then think about create two triggers and call a child flow for the common logic. Yes you will end up having 3 flows but your child flow will handle all the business logic for both flows.

 

Thanks

Re: No CDS trigger for when a new record is OR when a new record is updated. How to get around this?

I also posted this question in the PowerApps forum. Thanks to @v-siky-msft and @HSheild  for pointing out there is a trigger for when a record is created, updated or deleted.

 

To get this trigger you need to use the Common Data Service (current environment) connector.

 

Common Data Service ( Current Environment ) connector is only available inside of CDS solution, so you should first enter the solution, and then click New-Flow to create a flow inside the solution.

@abm , thanks, I'll investigate the child flow as the logic is identical.
