Etag is not available from Dynamic Content options.

I have an approval flow that after a file in a specific Sharepoint library is created or modified, posts a dynamic card to Teams for approval, then notifies the Team once approval is complete.  I'd like to have Flow set the approval status on the file.  

 

I added the "Set content approval status" to flow, but I haven't specified an Etag, because I don't see it from the Dynamic Content Options.

Here's what i see when i click on the Dynamic Content for Etag:

It's also not there when i search for the term 'Etag'.  (hopefully you'll just trust me on this one).  

 

Here's what the top of my flow looks like for reference:

You have to retrieve the eTag by using the Get File Metadata action.  That will give you access to additional properties, including the eTag.

Thanks this is what did it.  So does getfilemetadata supercede get file properties?  Just wondering if it would be more efficient to skip 'getfileproperties'.

Neither one contains all the properties.  Get file metadata contains the properties related to the physical file and its storage, while get file properties returns the normal properties that are usually used and modified.  They have specific uses and neither one contains all the properties you may need.  You use one or the other depending on the situation.
