Note: Flows for an authorized charge and a usual charge may be different depending on the choice of the Capture Delay parameter. Provided that the "immediate" value is set in the Capture Delay settings of your account (Adyen account > Account > Settings), the charge will be completed in any case, regardless of the Capture status, e.g. "False" or "True".
In all other cases, all charges will be completed depending on the Capture status.
