Flow not triggering on update item in sharepoint

Hi,

 

I see a lot of discussions around this item, but can't find the real answer online.

 

My issue is as follows:

- I have a sharepoint list

- I have a flow that should trigger on create or update of a list item in above sharepoint list

 

As soon as I create or update an item in the sharepoint list the flow is not triggered at all. As soon as I change the trigger to  fire only on create, it works fine. What is wrong in my setup?

 

 

1) the settings of the flow-trigger

Re: Flow not triggering on update item in sharepoint

Ah , extra info. It's not triggering on the change on one specific field. This is a optionset (type is choice) field

Hi @AG2019 

 

Sometimes it might take sometime to trigger as well. The SharePoint triggers are all based on recurrence (which means they keep scanning for every 5 minute interval) so it might take until that much time for the flow to run (not that often though)

 

Hope this Helps!

Re: Flow not triggering on update item in sharepoint

I've been having this same issue again recently.  It'll trigger inconsistently.  The interesting part is that if I open the flow and save it (without making any changes), all the instances that didn't trigger will start immediately.

Re: Flow not triggering on update item in sharepoint

Hi yashag2255,

 

I know that there is some delay between implementing and effectuating, but in this case I was waiting for over 1 hour before I posted my question. 

I have no idea what finally fixed the issue, but even now when it's working the reaction on a "on create" is much faster than "on create or update". Is this something you recognize or can explain?

Small test show an instance of my flow in 5 sec when the flow trigger "on create" and around 20 sec (sometimes more) when the flow trigger "on create or update".....
