Allow Management of Content Types May Cause Flow to Fail

  • I have a flow that updates a field in a SharePoint list after the Flow Approval is complete.
  • When I built the flow, allow managment of content types was "no"
  • Today, realized that I left that feature on...and turned it off
  • The approver, approved the item; however, the list did not auto update to approved like previous tests did
  • here is the error

The passed-in field "{ContentType}" could not be found clientRequestId: e02df7a3-e19a-4024-bb10-e56adbca2cf3

    

  • It seems that having allow management of content types left to "yes" during flow creation makes the flow seek out a value in the content types field. When flow does not see this...you get the error above.
  • I will run some more tests today and see how the results compare with allow management of content types "yes" and "no"

I was able to solve this problem in the following way:

 

  • Turn management of content types in the list to "no"
  • Burn a copy of the flow
  • Turn off the old flow
  • Turn on the new flow
  • Everything worked

 

I have not tested to see what happens if I now turn content types to "on"
