Get file properties - remove the ID field

I came across a "Get file properties" without the mandatory ID field (see image below) and I am trying to replicate it with no success.

This is inside an Apply to each action and immediately preceded by a "Compose" action.
Can anyone figure out how this can be done? Thanks.

Hi @ramsabi,


Can you check the operationid value of the inputs of the action? Does it say GetFileItem?

It looks a lot like the Get files (properties only) action btw (the operationid of that one is GetFileItems).

Wow you hit the nail on the head. It says GetFileItems (see image below). How do I change it?

Hi @ramsabi,

 

You just need to replace your current action by the actual get file properties action. You might need to change other bits as well in the rest of your flow.

Thank you. I am using the actual "Get file properties" action. Please see image below. There is only one isn't it? What am I missing?

Hi @ramsabi,

 

Yes, you should be using the second one if you want to retrieve a single file based on an ID.

 

Btw, it's hard to tell why your flow is a GetFileItems instead. But if I would have to guess I would put my money on somebody just renaming the flow action?

Exactly what I thought. But Get files (properties only) is also available. So, I am wondering what could have been renamed.
