Updating Single Field in the SharePoint List using flow

Hi,

 

I am using SharePoint Update Item and want to update single field in the list. I am setting value for the mandatory field and the single field that I want to update leaving other fields untouched.

 

However, when the flow executes it clears all the other fields in the list for which I have not provided the value.

 

Quick looking at a code view I noticed that it's passing empty values for the other fields, can I update the code view in flow to fix the issue ? Is there other fix available for this ?

@imran7799 :

 

Are all of the fields being cleared out either choice or lookup columns?

Thanks for the reply @ScottShearer .

 

They all are single line of text. After you replied, I reviewed all the columns in the list and looks like this is hapening only with all the "Single line of text" columns.

 

I have other types of fields in the list (Multi line text, date, person etc.) but they are not loosing their values.

I don't see why this may be happening to you - it should not be. 

As a work around, put a Get Item action before the Update Item action.  Then, supply values for Get Item Dynamic Properties for those columns that are being cleared.

 

Sorry I don't have any better ideas.
