SQL Server Catalog Query Always Running With SQL Server Trigger In Power Automate Flow


I have a flow created using a SQL Server table's timestamp field as the trigger. The flow just works fine, but a SQL Server intellisense query (a query against System catalog tables) are always being run against the database. This query is causing locking issues on our database, slowing down other queries taking away the resources and eventually not kicking off the flow. Has anyone faced this kind of situation? If so, how to get around with this? Any insights on this is much appreciated. Thanks!

Instead of running the flow with a trigger, run a flow on a schedule
