Flow Status - check if flow is already running

(Andrew Catchpole) #1

Is there a [simple] method to check if a flow is already running?
e.g. to avoid triggering multiple instances of the same flow?

Andrew, sorry for the delayed response. There isn’t a simple method of doing that unfortunately, although we are considering exposing an API that might make it easier. One problem is that any given flow definition can legitimately have many different instances of it running at a time.

Your best bet in the short term might be to use Google Sheets or some other storage such as attributes and record when a flow starts, and then again when it ends, and check that storage to decide whether to launch a new flow.
