Approval with attachement array from email

Hello, 

 

Im trying o attach an attachments array in Approval. Im failing each time. Either the file is corrupted or is empty. I tried multiplie solutions from forums

 

1) Add multiple attachments to an approval email with Power Automate (tachytelic.net) - empty or corrupted file

2) Solved: Re: Power Automate approval with Attachments - Power Platform Community (microsoft.com) - corrupted file

3)Solved: Attachment corruption on approval emails - Power Platform Community (microsoft.com) - corrupted file

 

i tried couple other of versions which combines all above and some other treads that i found. each time effect was the same - corrupted or empty file. 

 

i tried making attachments array directly from email attachments, i tried saving them on SP and on OneDrive.  

 

current attempt look like this - effect -> corrupted files. Files that are saved on OneDrive are fine, they open properly.

 
 
 

So you are my last hope - any ideas on how to make it run? Please help 😞

 

in case its important - All attachments are in PDF

@TeodorTeter - Yes, just use attachment content and do not wrap in the base64() expression.

This video has you covered - https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Webinars-and-Video-Gallery/Add-Multiple-Attachments-to-an-Approv...

Having reviewed your screenshot I would expect you need to remove the "" around the base64() expression... as the quotes tell PA that you are adding a string, and therefor it will try to re-encode the content, in affect base64 encoding a base64 string... thus a corrupt file.

@Jay-Encodian  - it helped! however only while I'm saving the attachment on on OneDrive. and using advanced scenario 

{
"name": "file.docx",
"content": {
"$content-type": "application/octet-stream",
"$content":
}
}

 

Is there any way to make it run directly from email attachments? 

@TeodorTeter - Yes, just use attachment content and do not wrap in the base64() expression.
