Set Variable validation incorrect on update (for condition branch NO only)

This is consistent behaviour when a Set Variable is used in the No branch of a condition


Works correctly when the Set Variable action is first created and flow saved


Defaults back to number validation on successive flow saves


Workaround: Reverse flow logic if possible or remove Set Variable action and re-create

Hi @dpitman,


Thanks for the feedback.

Besides, would it be available for you to share a screenshot (when the Set Variable not working as expected)?

Which should be helpful to better understand the issue here.

Sorry I did not see this


I have described exactlly how to repeat it, my flow is working and I do not want to break it to give you a screenshot
