Get file properties is failin "Unauthorized"

I am trying to build a munally started approval process for which i am apprently required to use a get file property function first in order to later be able to access and update some properties ( for status visualization). Right now i am facing the issue, that my get properties function is failng leaving me with this error message:


{"error_description":"Exception of type 'Microsoft.IdentityModel.Tokens.AudienceUriValidationFailedException' was thrown."}


According to the troubleshooting tips it's supposed to be solved by refreshing the connectors.... but mine are all working well.Capture.PNG


Any help would be appreciated 🙂

Re: Get file properties is failin "Unauthorized"


Hi @Anonymous,


I afraid that your flow failed because of an authentication error.



In many cases, flows fail because of an authentication error. If you have this type of error, the error message contains Unauthorizedor an error code of 401 or 403 appears. You can usually fix an authentication error by updating the connection:

  1. At the top of the web portal, click or tap the gear icon to open the Settings menu, and then click or tap Connections.

  2. Scroll to the connection for which you saw the Unauthorized error message.

  3. Next to the connection, click or tap the Verify password link in the message about the connection not being authenticated.

  4. Verify your credentials by following the instructions that appear, return to your flow-run failure, and then click or tap Resubmit.

    The flow should now run as expected.

As is refered in the link below for troubleshooting a flow:

thank you for your swift reply.


I found that troubleshooting as well but all required connections seem to be working resp. have stauts connected. As they are all connected there is no 'verify password option'.


That's why i was hoping to find a solution on here.

Re: Get file properties is failin "Unauthorized"

I'm having the same issue.  Also, I have it sporadically in the same flow instance that runs in an Apply to Each loop.  I have it looping through the documents and getting the file properties of each.  In my example, out of 400+ files, I was "unauthorized" to get the properties of 3 or 4 of them.  

Could these be locked for editing by a user maybe?
