Trigger failed for Sharepoint item modified or item created

Hi folks, 


maybe i'm just doing something wrong as i am new to this cool flowstuff 🙂 I want a file to be updated at my FTP server if its created or modified in my sharepoint list. But i always get an error when I look into the details: 




The setup is quite simple so i cannot understand why it does not fire at all:





any ideas what i am doing wrong?


thanks and cheers

Hi @Anonymous,


Did you make sure that your newly created file in sharepoint document is under the "Hardwareketalog" folder? Cause I cannot reproduce your issue, see the same trigger files successfully after I upload a new file in the target folder.

Well, I'm sure I create the file in the right folder. thats why I have no clue why the trigge ris not fireing at all. Any IdeaS?

Having the same problem. Found any solution for this yet? I suspect my issue has something to do with the fact that the list item the flow gets triggered from pulls information (lookup) from another list. It seems the trigger fails because it cannot connect to the alternate list where the lookup points to.

We are still investigating. Seems like its a right management issue. 

Is there an update for this issue at all?  I'm also receiving "Trigger Failed" on executing a Flow when a file is uploaded or modified (both .xlsx) in a Sharepoint Folder.
