I created a record-triggered flow which runs if the record is created or updated from my custom object (contract). This works fine so far. But yesterday I uploaded new data (sales), which are related to my custom object (contract), and the flow triggered also, can I deactivate this function? Because the flow should run just when I upload or create records from my custom object (contract).


If a related object uses a Trigger, Flow, Process, or Rollup Summary field, and the record changes as a result, the Record-Triggered Flow will also trigger. The only way to avoid this is to not rollup or modify the parent object in any way.

  • I upload new data of sales, which have only a relationship to the contract, not more. I update not the contract data and the flow is triggered by update/create contract. Is that correct?

  • @peXeq I'm not sure I understand your comment. As I said in my answer, though, the Flow would only trigger if the Contract were somehow updated. You might want to read Triggers and Order of Execution for more information on the save process.
