How to stop a Zap if Google Drive upload fails?

I have a zap creating an image collection in Bannerbear and then uploading the files to google drive. After doing that, it’s updating a record in Airtable.

If the Google Drive uploads fail for any reason, I don’t want it to update Airtable, but currently that’s what’s happening, and I’m not seeing an option to stop the run if there’s a failure in the Google Drive upload step.

Does anybody have any experience with this? I’m finding it kind of comical since most people usually have the opposite problem of wanting their zap to continue after a failure, and I want mine to stop.

Hi @Alyssa_B 

Try adding a Filter step to the Zap:

Check if the GDrive step returned an ID for the File. (exists)

Great idea! Was considering a filter but wasn’t sure which fields would work for that bool. Appreciate it!
