Flow Edit Item does not show all Managed Metadata Termset choices


When I start a SharePoint Edit Item step and enter a TermSet /  MMD choice not all items are showned in the drop down list.


If i enter a Custum value which exists in de Termset if gives a Error when running the Flow. See details Below.


Why isn't the full Managed Metadata list available and wihy is the flow stopping when I use a existing value.

Hi @Bestebreurtje,


I have made a test on my side and have created a metadata column with thirteenTerms, and don't have the issue that you mentioned.

The thirteen Terms would all available in the Update item action on my side.


How many terms do you have?And how many terms are available in the Update item action on your side?


Please share more details so we would try to provide a proper workaround for you.


Best regards,




Thank you Alice for contacting me.


It looks likes it's stop showing items beyond 20. This termset contains more than 50 items.


Beste Regards,



Hi @Bestebreurtje,


I have made a test on my side and the issue is confirmed on my side.the flow “update item” action does not show all Managed Metadata Termset choices when the Metadata Termset choices are more than beyond 27.


I have created a Metadata Termset with 30 choices on my side,the Metadata column in the "Update item" would only show 27 choices and wouldn't show all of the choices as screenshot below:



I would post this issue to my product team, if the issue is solved, I will reply here.



Best regards,


It seems the issue still exists in Flow and it is the same when using poweapps

I am also experiencing this issue.  As a work around I was able to use a manual entry which consisted of the term name| term ID.  This allows me to write to that field, but it seems to prevent it from writing to any remaining fields after that.  The worflow shows that it successfully completed and it even says that all fields were updated, but that is not the case on the document in SharePoint.  The terms that I can select (first 20 terms) all work properly.  An update on this would be appreciated.
