I'm knee deep in my migration to flow from workflow and triggers and I've decided to put in a custom setting killswitch so I can turn the flows on and off like I do on triggers. I built my flow settings custom setting and now I'm in a record triggered flow.

My problem is that when I start to adjust the entry conditions on the flow. I make a formula condition, search for the setting, click on it, and add it. If I check syntax I get an error it doesn't exist.

Error: Field does not exist. Check spelling.

Has anyone ever seen this before? Am I doing this wrong?

  • just try saving the flow and ignore the check syntax button

  • It let me save, it's strange the check syntax doesn't like it. I tried older custom settings and got the same thing. Oct 17, 2022 at 16:46

This is a Known Issue and scheduled for fixing Spring 23

The workaround is to not click the Check Syntax button and just save the flow - it will save (and execute) successfully
