Trigger flow when Azure Devops work item is updated to a certain state

I want to trigger a flow when a work item is updated to a certain state.  However, once that work item is in that state, I don't want it to trigger anymore.


I was hoping to do this by having a way to compare "old value" versus "new value", but didn't see a way to do that.


For example, trigger when a work item is transitioned to the "Proposed" state, but once in that state, if the work item is updated with comments, etc, I don't want the flow to trigger.

Don't worry about the trigger, worry about the operation. Add a condition to the flow, that checks if there is a "proposed" state value. If there is, do nothing. If there is not, put it in a proposed state. Further:

If you could provide an expanded screenshot of your Flow and steps, your Flow run history, and of any detailed error messages you're receiving we could likely better assist you. Also, for the best results, you may want to review How to write a good forum post.
