I've noticed that required fields are messing with before-save flows.

  • I want to add a default value to few fields.
  • One of the field is the required field (I am using an app from the store and it cannot be changed).
  • The flow is not working for this one field, the record cannot be changed without populating manually the value.

What can I do with it? Thanks!

flow assignment it means add the value to the field

Unfortunately, there's nothing you can do here, except to make the field optional. If you look at the Triggers and Order of Execution page, you'll see that requiredness is checked in step 2, before the before-save flows and triggers execute. In other words, you can't have the field be required and not change the external service. Something has to be changed.
