Eliminate columns odata.etag and ItemInternal ID in get items of sharepoint list connector

Hi,

I am trying to use the 'Get items' connector of sharepoint in Microsoft flow. I want to be able to eliminate unnecessary information like "odata.etag", "ItemInternalID" etc. Could you please suggest a way to do so? 

I want to do so because I want to convert just the sharepoint list content into csv format and the columns are not known to me before hand

The rest of those columns are system columsn that can't be removed from Get Items.  But you can use a Select Data Operation and map just the columns you want into a new data collection.  For example the screenshot below would create a new array that only includes the Title column from the Get items feed.

One of the advanced settings in the Get Items action is to restrict the columns returned to a specific view.  If you create a view in the SharePoint list you can limit the columns retrieved by Get Items to just the columns included in that view.
