My Flow doesn't trigger.

Hello,

I am trying to copy the attachment from a SharePoint List to a Library (when an new item is created). Using FLOW I figure out that sometimes my workflow doesn't trrigger and I don't understand why. When I have created it, I done a test and the workflow worked properly...But when I created an new item in the list...it doesn't work...

My FLOW includes the next steps:

Does anyone knows why it happens that??? I really should find a solution, please.

Hi @Madalina97 

 

Try with the following trigger condition added to the when a new item is added action (your flow trigger)

 

go to settings for this action

and add the following trigger condition

 

@equals(triggerBody()?['{HasAttachments}'],true)

 

This should onyl trigger the flow when a new item is added with a attachment

Which flow plan are you on? I think the free one can take around 15 minutes sometimes.

Hello, Gristy. Thank you for response. I am using Office365 at my job..so I don't think it's a free version.

I take a look to the history flow run and I figure out that my FlOW was actually triggered..but without result.. As you can see in the picture...the "DURATION" is "00:00:00" when I creat an item in a list...Capture.PNG

I was waiting for 20minutes without result...my attachment doesn't copy in the library...

Hi @Madalina97 ,

 

Could you please check from the flow run history which's "DURATION" is "00:00:00" to see if the "Get attachment" action and the "Apply to each" has run ?

I'm afraid that the flow gas run with "DURATION" is "00:00:00" because the item don't have attachments.

Hello 

All items have attachments. When I "Resubmit" the FLOW with the DURATION 00:00:00, it works.

Re: My Flow doesn't trigger.

I see that"When an item is created" returns a FALSE result  even if the item has

attachments. How is possible this??

Hi,

 

I believe the way SharePoint works is to save the item first, then add the attachments. This is why resubmitting works.

 

It is likely that Flow is running too quickly.

 

In your flow instead of using the trigger body, use a Get Item and pass the ID from the trigger body. This will get a refreshed version of the list item. Maybe even adding a 1 minute pause so you are sure everything is good.
