Microsoft Flow – When a file is created or modified (properties only) has been extended

Recently a new set of triggers was added to the Microsoft Flow SharePoint connector as I described in  When a file or item is deleted triggers post.

I did not realize that the When a file is created or modified (properties only)  trigger was also extended. Until I noticed some flows reporting the following error:

Microsoft Flow - When a file is created or modified (properties only) has been extended Microsoft Flow, Microsoft Office 365 filedeleted

The Failure summary shows a “file  XYZ doesn’t exist”. How can a file be modified and then not exist:

Microsoft Flow - When a file is created or modified (properties only) has been extended Microsoft Flow, Microsoft Office 365 summary

When I checked the site I noticed that these files were deleted and this is now seen as a modification to the file. I’#m not sure if this is a bug or not, but it is quite an annoying one.

  1. I will have to update my flow to check if the file that is modified actually exist
  2. I will now get more unnecessary runs of my flow
  3. The When a file is created or modified (properties only) trigger should be renamed as this is confusing
