Azure Logic App is triggering 2 times from SharePoint Online when only updating 1 field

I expirienced a problem with triggering Azure Logic apps from SharePoint Online. The user is editing an item and updates 1 field. However the Logic App behind the list is getting 2 triggers very fast. The problem is that the workflow is creating another item on another list and processes the current list item by changing a field to another value, but because it triggers in very fast succesion, the logic app is not able to see the updated field and creates another list item.

The workflow is triggered when an HTTP request is received and first is checking if the item is already processed. Before creating the other item, the workflow gets current item context again and checks again if its processed. It looks like when working with PowerApp forms, other workflows are trigger only once. There are not any other choice fields that changes values what so ever. Is there anyone who can explain why the workflow gets triggered 2 times?

I hope I can find a solution,

    Hi @B Hoegen Dijkhof ,

    Please check if there is any other flow or workflow related to this field. A lot of similar problems are caused by the logic contained in the Flow that was created before, which affects the normal operation of the existing Flow.
