Get a field value on the folder level, not on the file level

Hello,

 
Hope you're doing well!

 

Problem:

I'm creating a condition on a field of a Folder but the Power Automate functions only can be applied on the file level for example: Get file properties, Update file properties.

 

Get file properties allows accessing all the fields that exist in my SharePoint list but I need to access the same fields on the folder level.

These options are only useful in my case on the file level so I would like to use them on the folder level

 

Expected result:

I would like to use the properties as stated above in the "Problem" section in order to complete my condition.

My condition needs the " Project Manager OCUp Email" in order to check that it's not null in the Folder level

That my SharePoint list on the folder level

What I used:

I tried all the folders and files properties but I didn't succeed to get what I need.

 
What's the best practice function to use to achieve the above result?
 
Any help will be highly appreciated.
 
Thank you so much!

Hi @Roberto_el_Hajj 

 

Use the Get Folder Metadata action step. Next use the Get File Properties and pass the Id here.

 

Thanks
