SQL Server Item Created Trigger



I have created a flow that triggers when a record is inserted into SQL server (in Azure, not on-prem) and when I use the test mode and perform the trigger myself, the flow runs perfectly. The problem is when I leave the flow on and insert into the table, the flow does not trigger by itself.


I also have have a primary key/identity column specified in my table.


Edit: Testing while performing the trigger on my own no longer works, I have changed nothing with the connection.

Edit2: I believe I have narrowed the problem down to performing too many tests/inserts in a certain timeframe will mess up the connection and prevent the flow from triggering. The flow will be triggering when I change the connection on the the SQL Server trigger to a connection configured the same, but with a different name

Re: SQL Server Item Created Trigger

Hi @Anonymous,


Does your flow work well after you recreate the connection with a different name?


I haven’t seen such an issue, I will try to reproduce it on my side.

Re: SQL Server Item Created Trigger

I'm having the same issue as originally described.  The flow works when I choose test and enter a new row but will not work when just left switched "on".
