Concatenate SharePoint List Attachment Titles

Hi all, 

 

I have a SharePoint list with attachments.

I need to get the names of all attachments and save this data into a "Multiple Lines of text" column in the list. 

I'm close, but I need help with the formula. 

I'm using a "Get attachments" action, then a "set variable" action from the outputs like so:

 

concat(body('Get_attachments')) 
 
This gives me something like this:

[{"Id":"%252fLists%252fContract%2bRegister%252fAttachments%252f98%252f098%2bSupplierX%2bTechnology.pdf","AbsoluteUri":"https://Mydomain.com/Lists/Contract Register/Attachments/98/098 Mexon Technology.pdf","DisplayName":"098 Supplier Technology.pdf","@odata.type":"#Microsoft.Azure.Connectors.SharePoint.SPListItemAttachment"}]

 

I tried:

concat(body('Get_attachments')?['DisplayName']) but that was invalid because "...property 'DisplayName' cannot be selected. Array elements can only be selected using an integer index."
So basically all I need is the DisplayName of each of the items in the output of Get Attachments. 
Any suggestions?

Re: Concatenate SharePoint List Attachment Titles

Hi @SylvieLet17 

"Get Attachments" action returns array so I would suggest approach below:

  • Create variable "AttachmentNames" as array, where you store all attachment names
  • Add "Append to array variable" action and select "DisplayName" property from "Get Attachments" action. It adds "Apply to each" action automatically.
  • You can use join(variables('AttachmentNames'),'; ') to convert array into string
