Power Automate Issue

Hello!

I have the following issue: when I need to get items from one SP site and then create a new item in this site but the new item is not created in this list when I test my flow. Does anybody know why it can happen?ccc.jpguzkhQWzc.jpgyYRVYxU5.jpgmyPVV8jM.jpg

Can you share the details of the Condition action?

Also, what happens if the Get Items doesn't return any results?

Ellis

Hello Ekarim,

These are details of the Condition (the item is created if the number of items in the list is not greater than 0)RqF5nZFY.jpgQWWIg5iH.jpg

Get items returns the following - it gets item but returns empty valuetzRzc0sO.jpglGJPxEHD.jpg

Get items returns the following - it gets item but returns empty valuetzRzc0sO.jpglGJPxEHD.jpg

This empty value is the item itself

I think I will need to see the entire flow to understand the logic and which actions are providing the columns fields to Get Items and Create items action.

For example, the Create item action is inside a loop, and will run 0 or more times depending on the content of value:

What action supplies the 'Title' and other columns:

And for the Create items action, can you share the Inputs and Outputs:

If I restate the issue: In one of your screenshots you posted the image below, which shows that your flow gets to an Apply to Each loop with a Create item action inside it. The Create item action does not execute and you do not get a meaningful response or any error message -  although the loop appears to have completed successfully.

Can you try: 

(1) Use Save As to save a new copy of your flow. (2) The turn off this old flow.

(2) Turn on the new flow and test the flow.

I tried but the result is still the same

I believe that the issue is being caused by no results or data being sent to the Create item action. In other words there is no data in the value property. And because the value property is empty, the loop will run zero times - as there is no data for the Create item action - it will not execute.

ekarim2020_2-1630325157462.png

So although your flow enters the Apply to each loop, the loop successfully runs 0 times -

ekarim2020_12-1630327024630.png

Compare the above with my demo flow below - which reproduces the same issue. The Get items action in the flow below does not produce any results - but I am use those same results for the Create item action - but it does not run as there is no date to use for the Create items action. The Apply to Each loop runs 0 times and never gets to execute the Create item action:

ekarim2020_4-1630325480993.png

Here is the flow in more details, where I am using the Get Items action to get some data from the Routing list. I then use the results from the Get Items action to create new records in a different list using Create Item:

ekarim2020_7-1630325937043.png

After running the flow, note that the content of the Compose action (which stores the value property) - it is empty (click to download shows [] - an empty array of content):

ekarim2020_8-1630326148608.png

Here is the compose action where Get Items does return data (ie. the value property contains data):

ekarim2020_9-1630326246515.png

And here is the loop, where new items (12!) are created in another SharePoint list:

ekarim2020_10-1630326454512.png

Your flow is long and complex. I would suggest that you work through the flow again, step-by-step to find where the problem lies. I would suggest building a new flow step-by-step, confirming and validating each action along they way - unless of course you know where the issue lies already. You should check all your conditions and any search filters used, and use the Compose action to help you along the way.

Hope this helps.
