Correct its FS - we actually have another process, Tripwire, running that performs the same function, capturing file changes - our hope was that Flow could replace Tripwire. We plan to reconcile the two and I'll let you know the differences, but again, we can copy the flow and change only the servers/paths and see significant variations in expected versus actual output. It may be OS-version related?
ugh... spent an hour on this to find out its a known bug for YEARS.. and I thought I did something wrong.. i deleted, recreated, triggered (or so I thought).
Seriously this product has too many issues for my liking.
@dblyth I just sent some information to your email on this topic. My "when an item is created or modified" will run when I manually hit run or test --- but it gets stuck. It is not kicking off at all automatically upon creation or change as I would expect it to.
Thanks for checking with me. I "think" I send you a notification to ignore that. I'm still working on this but I think now it may be my error. I'll circle back with you for sure.
I'm good with this now. It was not related to the trigger failing rather -- I misunderstood the new menu for creating flows and selected the wrong one and I'd not put a button on my app to kick it off -- while I'd expected it to automatically kick off. I'm sorry but thanks for your quick reply.
Has there been a fix for this yet? I have spent days trying everything and rebuilding flows but have now given up where the flow only gets triggered sometimes on modify. 😞
Facing similar issue with Flow. The issue is random with my scenario and not consistent, sometimes the Flow skips updates happening to the list item in SharePoint Online list but other times fires. I tested this since 4 hours now and out of 20 updates it skipped 5-6 of them. But successfully fired at other times. Trigger is the same, connection is the same, list is the same.
So I would like to know the trigger dependecy detail, how can we check logs or find the trail of flow since update is made in SharePoint Online. Has someone faced similar random issue earlier? Looking eagerly for a resolution and cause of why it is happening.
Is it possible that there are multiple changes to the same item within a few second window? Unfortunately such changes in close proximity are batched together into a single flow run.
How are the items being modified as well? API calls? Other Flows? the UI's list editor?
Finally, is it possible that versioning is enabled and a new version has not been published when the changes are missed?
Any or all of these can impact whether Flows trigger and/or what changes they see when they run.
