Getting file identifier (SharePoint) using on-premise gateway

Hi,

 

I am creating a flow connected (using an on-premise gateway) to take action on files when they are created in a SharePoint folder.

I am having difficulties getting the file contents of the files that are created within SharePoint. For some reason, there is no option to get the "File Identifier" in the dynamic content from the file that is created. Only the file ID is listed as an option.

Am I unable to get the "File Identifier" of the created file due to the use of an on-premise gateway to access the library? Is there any other way to get the file identifier of the created file without using the dynamic content?

 

Thanks,

Hi @jacksonvier1 ,

 

You could try to write the expression manually.

triggerOutputs()?['body/{Identifier}']

In addition, you could try create a new flow.

Hi @jacksonvier1 ,

 

Do you want to retrieve the dynamic content(Identifier)?

You could try to enter the keyword in the 'Search dynamic content' box or drag the Scroll bar in Dynamic content tab.

Hi Charlie,

 

The "Identifier" dynamic content is not available. Do you know why this is the case? Also, is there a way to get the Identifier for the file without the dynamic content
