Content-Range header missing error in HTTP request but it isn't

Hi, 

I'm attempting to create a flow that uses Universal Print, i get to the point of getting the document upload url, i then do a put HTTP request within power automate with the Content-Range and Content-Type headers set. However it gives an error back saying that the Content-Range header is missing, even though you can see it in the request headers. I have tried this exact same thing with postman and it works fine so it's not a problem with the HTTP request generally but something with power automate. I've attached an image of the error.

No doesn't really help. I know exactly what the content range is meant to look like. I've done the same HTTP request on Postman and it works fine. I've inputted it the same way and in the output showing the request in the flow test it is formatted correctly but power automate must not me sending it right.

Hi @MediafieldsWeb 

 

When you run the Postman run the fiddler on side by side. Have a look in the header/body request. Postman might be binding something default to get it correctly.

For an update on this, i've still not been able to get it to work. However i did point the request to a dummy server i set up, and i can see that for some reason Power Automate HTTP request sends all the headers except the "Content-Range" header, which it misses out. Don't know if this is a bug , but still need some help with this.

Hi @MediafieldsWeb 

 

So you have set the header Content-Range in your HTTP request from PowerAutomate?

Yes it's set in the request, and it shows in the error as being in the headers which you can see in the screenshot but the server doesn't seem to recieve it.

Hi @MediafieldsWeb ,

I’m facing the same problem; I’ve inserted a header in a HTTP request in Power Automate, but it seems to get lost on the way because the flow results in a “header is missing” error. I’ve done the exact same request using VBA, the same header is being received and it works. I’m very curious about if you were able to fix the problem?

 

For those who want to help; here is more information about the failed request.

 

Bas12_0-1638609362919.png

(“kopteksten” is Dutch voor “headers”)

 

The unedited input for the flow in Power Automate is:

    "uri": https://api.bag.acceptatie.kadaster.nl/lvbag/individuelebevragingen/v2/adressenuitgebreid?postcode=2...,

    "method": "GET",

    "headers": {

        "X-Api-Key": "xxxxxxxxxxx",

        "Accept-Crs": "epsg:28992"

 

The error in the output from the flow in Power Automate is:

  "status": 412,

  "title": "Gewenste coördinatenstelsel voor geometrie moet worden opgegeven.",

  "type": "https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc7232#section-4.2",

  "detail": "Precondition failed.",

  "instance": "https://api.bag.acceptatie.kadaster.nl/lvbag/individuelebevragingen/v2/adressenuitgebreid?postcode=2...",

  "code": "acceptCrsMissing"

 

This is puzzling because the header ‘Accept-Crs’ was added in the request.

 

When I use requestcatcher.com I can see that only the ‘Accept-Crs’ header isn’t being send by Power Automate. Could there be some kind of validation of standard accepted ‘accept’ and ‘content’ headers? And is it possible to bypass this mechanism?

Hello @Bas12,

 

try to use another action: "Send an HTTP request"  from "Office 365 Groups" connector.

________________________________________________________

Welcome to my web site.

Hello @VictorIvanidze,

 

Thanks a lot for your advice! I've tried it right away. Unfortunately I get the following error/response:

 

URI path is not a valid Graph endpoint, path is neither absolute nor relative or resource is not one of the supported (me, users, groups, sites, search, planner, teams, chats)

 

It seems that the suggested alternative connector can only be used in combination with Office365 products?

Hello @VictorIvanidze , 

 

I used the following input:

{
    "host": {
        "connectionReferenceName""shared_office365groups",
        "operationId""HttpRequest"
    },
    "parameters": {
        "Method""GET",
        "CustomHeader1""Accept-Crs: epsg:28992",
        "CustomHeader2""X-Api-Key: XXXXXXXX"
    }
}
Bas12_0-1638621962574.png

 

This is the output:
{
  "error": {
    "code"400,
    "message""URI path is not a valid Graph endpoint, path is neither absolute nor relative or resource is not one of the supported (me, users, groups, sites, search, planner, teams, chats): https://api.bag.acceptatie.kadaster.nl/lvbag/individuelebevragingen/v2/adressenuitgebreid?postcode=2...",
    "source""europe-002.azure-apim.net",
    "path""choose[9]\\when[1]",
    "policyId""",
    "clientRequestId""71a6662a-3823-40a7-9c84-010e0b81035d"
  }
}
Did I use the connector correct?

Please forgive me, I gave you a wrong suggestion. "Send an HTTP request" action can work only with Microsoft Graph REST API .

Hi @Bas12 ,

 

As far as I am aware some HTTP headers are omitted in the HTTP action. Content-Range is one of them. You might want to check if the ones you are using are listed in te same doc.

 

So, it would simply be removed from your request. And that might explain why you are getting a message that it is missing.

Happy to help out! 🙂

Thanks, I found that article shortly after I posted. What's so incredibly frustrating is that Power Automate strips this header out, yet Universal Print requires the header in step 3 (uploading content). So invoking Universal Print from Power Automate does not seem possible.

 

What I'm attempting now is writing my own web service and custom connector and passing it the binary from Power Automate. Of course, binary isn't an option when creating a custom connector through the UI, but it *is* an option if you use the Swagger editor. Another topic in this forum pointed me to this:

https://github.com/microsoft/PowerPlatformConnectors/blob/8e8702daa846d3d35755971282947347dba2931d/c...

 

I'm now stuck on authentication issues. I can invoke my web service through the custom connector, but it doesn't propagate the user's identity, so either a) it doesn't authenticate to my web service properly, or b) it authenticates as a service, not as the specific user, but the graph API for creating a print job doesn't support application permissions.

 

I'm hoping to work through that today. If/when I get it figured out, I'll post an update.

Well, I gave up and decided to use PrintNode instead. It took about 30 minutes to set up and it's working great.

These subscriptions ensure you receive automated messages about the most recent posts and replies. Even better, there are multiple ways you can subscribe to content and boards in the community! (Please note: if you have created an AAD (Azure Active Directory) account you won't be able to receive e-mail notifications.)   Subscribing to a Category  When you're looking at the entire category, select from the Options drop down and choose Subscribe.     You can then choose to Subscribe to all of the boards or select only the boards you want to receive notifications. When you're satisfied with your choices, click Save.     Subscribing to a Topic You can also subscribe to a single topic by clicking Subscribe from the Options drop down menu, while you are viewing the topic or in the General board overview, respectively.     Subscribing to a Label Find the labels at the bottom left of a post.From a particular post with a label, click on the label to filter by that label. This opens a window containing a list of posts with the label you have selected. Click Subscribe.     Note: You can only subscribe to a label at the board level. If you subscribe to a label named 'Copilot' at board #1, it will not automatically subscribe you to an identically named label at board #2. You will have to subscribe twice, once at each board.   Bookmarks Just like you can subscribe to topics and categories, you can also bookmark topics and boards from the same menus! Simply go to the Topic Options drop down menu to bookmark a topic or the Options drop down to bookmark a board. The difference between subscribing and bookmarking is that subscriptions provide you with notifications, whereas bookmarks provide you a static way of easily accessing your favorite boards from the My subscriptions area.   Managing & Viewing Your Subscriptions & Bookmarks To manage your subscriptions, click on your avatar and select My subscriptions from the drop-down menu.     From the Subscriptions & Notifications tab, you can manage your subscriptions, including your e-mail subscription options, your bookmarks, your notification settings, and your email notification format.     You can see a list of all your subscriptions and bookmarks and choose which ones to delete, either individually or in bulk, by checking multiple boxes.     A Note on Following Friends on Mobile Adding someone as a friend or selecting Follow in the mobile view does not allow you to subscribe to their activity feed. You will merely be able to see your friends’ biography, other personal information, or online status, and send messages more quickly by choosing who to send the message to from a list, as opposed to having to search by username.
