Attachment to New Approval Action

Hi All,

 

I noticed that we have new Approval Action in MS Flow which allows for adding attachments to an approval request. GREAT!!!

BUT: it does not work for me... let me elaborate....

 

In my Flow I used to have a parallel branch to send A) the approval request without attachment:

old type approval without capability to add attachmentold type approval without capability to add attachment

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

and B) parallel mail with attachment:

mail with attachmentmail with attachment

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Attachment file is an array variable which stores 1 or more attachments:

attachment creationattachment creation

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The above described elements work fine! My flow has been used 1000+ times by 12+ users.

How happy I was that I could now eliminate the parallel e-mail and include attachments into a approval request. I followed the standard procedure for this inside the NEW action. Like this:

approval request WITH attachmentapproval request WITH attachment

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Flow goes into error when I do it like this. The error message reads:

error when approval has attachment arrayerror when approval has attachment array

 

 

 

 

Does anyone knows what I'm doing wrong?

Thank you for your help!

 

Regards

Charles

Hi @Charles-v-D,

 

The property name in the Attachment object should be "content" instead of "ContentBytes", please have a try with it.
