Create the input password on "For a selected file" sharepoint connector

Since we can assign the input from "for a selected file" on the SharePoint connector.

So, my purpose is I want the user to create the password by entering the password on text input and the question is can I limit the length or some character to input?  or Is it have some connector or solution to generate the random password?

Hi @mmchx 

 

Thank you for posting.

 

According to your description, you would like to customize input while using ‘for a selected file’. If any misunderstanding, please kindly let me know.

 

I’m afraid these two requests are impossible to achieve in flow right now.

 

Can I limit the length or some character to input?

No, we can only limit the type of input characters as below. We can't customize it further as they are by design.

Sorry, there is no such kind of connector available in flow. All we can try is using random function. But we can’t use it in trigger.
