Addding file as attachments to list object

Hi,

So, I have a flow that users can start manually and, as an input parameter, they can select a file. I guess the english name on the trigger would be "On selected object" and Filinnehåll is File content in english.

Now I want to add this file as an attachment to the selected object.

How do I get the uploaded filename with file extension so that I can use it as Filnamn (File name in english). I feel as if I'm missing something obvious here. The Flow is more complex than this but since I have the other parts working I removed them from this example.

Hi @Anonymous ,

Thanks for your feedback.

You can use the expression to get the file name.

I have made a flow for your scenario, please check it for a reference.

The expression in 'Compose' is: triggerBody()?['file']?['name']

I don't have my file in SharePoint. What I have is a SharePoint list with list objects. On that object I want to start a Flow (manually). As one of the input parameters on that Flow I want to upload a file from my computer.

The file I upload should then be added as an attachment to my list object. I know how to add the attachment but I cant figure out how to get the uploaded file name in Flow. I can't use static file names since I do not know what kind of files my users will upload.
