Flow to get notifications when a file is viewed on OneDrive

Is there a flow that can notify me when a file a is viewed/downloaded and by whom. 


For example: Joe has viewed 'ABC.pdf' on April 26, 2019 at 2:00pm. 


The file will be on OneDrive and the notification can be sent to Outlook.

Re: Flow to get notifications when a file is viewed on OneDrive

The OneDrive documentation and OneDrive for Business documentation spells out what each connector can do. The OneDrive for Business connector has Last modified by and Last modified time definitions, but not viewed or downloaded.

Office 365 comes with administration audit logs, including for OneDrive for Business that could possibly be utilized in Flow via the Office 365 APIs.
