Re: Update item error

I received that email on the 20 april with the same message. I am hoping they can resolve this issue soon as it has been 2 - 3 weeks already Man Indifferent

Re: Update item error

Just started getting this error as well this morning... Having worked with Office365 for a while now my first reaction was to delete everything and rebuild the Flow. Alas, didn't work this time.

 

Anyone else had Microsoft come back to them with a solution for this?
There is nothing about this as a service disruption in the Office365 Admin Portal...

Re: Update item error

Since Microsoft did not reply for so long. I have spend over the week testing and narrowing down the issue. So the work around solution is below:

 

  1. In your list, the Lookup Type and Person or Group type. Make sure the "Require that this column contains information" is noCapture.PNGCapture2.PNG
  2. The workflow should be able to work once you do that.
  3. If the field is required for that, you could use a third party application for the front end to validate. I am using form builder by Norbrik for the front end to validate it.

Re: Update item error

Hi Dereklin,

 

I am still getting the same error. Did you re-create your flows from scratch to get this to work?


Thanks!

Re: Update item error

Nope I didnt. On the flow, try updating your "update item" by reinserting the value again. If all else fail, try setting all the field except for the title to "no"

Re: Update item error

Hi,

 

Microsoft have replied to us and stated that fixes are now being implimented and should all be working by 1st May, I'm not holding my breath and wonder what will stop working next!

 

Hope this helps

Re: Update item error

Hi dereklin,

Thanks for the workaround!
My flow now works, sort of..
No more error "User value is invalid" and list item's text field is updated.
But in addition it erases the value of that now unrequired "Person or Group" type field.
Strange...

Re: Update item error

none of these workarounds worked at my end 😞

 

I raised a support case with Microsoft though 0365 admin portal as well and got the same response, 1st May for a fix.

 

From reading this thread it's quite unnacceptable that it would take upwards of 3 weeks to get a fix for a problem outside of our control. What if many company approvals are running on this? What are we supposed to do for 3 weeks while waiting??

 

Luckily in my case we have only moved a couple workflows from SharePoint workflows into Flow so business impact is fairly minimal. Microsoft if you're going to deprecate a product, at least make sure you have a decent support and update policy around the product replacing it!
