Dataverse When a row is added, modified or deleted triggering intermittently

I have a flow that uses the Update step on the Dataverse 'when a row is added, modified or deleted action' to trigger but it seems to be triggering intermittently. I know that this flow hasn't triggered on all of my records because it should be updating fields on the record which triggers it and I have audit history turned on for that record.


I have no failed runs, failed checks or checks (no new data), either flow runs or it doesn't trigger at all.


My environment is a sandbox enviornment with admin mode turned on and background processes are turned on.


On the occasions when the flow runs it doesn't fail, it runs without an issue.

Hi @Knivy ,


You have added column filter as statuscode which says this flow will only trigger if the statuscode is changed on those records, otherwise it wont. Please look at the records for which it did not trigger and see if the field value changes that took on those records.

Hi @ManishJain,


Yes that is the issue, the statuscode was being updated but the flow wasn't triggering, apologies for not making that clear in my initial post.


I spoke to microsoft about this and apparently on occasion when the status reason updates rather than running an update step it runs an activate step, which isn't picked up by the flow.

To combat this I created a workflow that on status change of this record updates another field and added that field into my column filters. This worked for some records but not for all, I'm not sure how to rectify this.


Please see below the audit history where the flow was triggered:

And the audit history for the record where it was not triggered:

They look exactly the same to me so I don't understand why one triggered and one didn't.


Any help would be much appreciated
