How to create an MD5 hash from a string?



Hoping someone can tell me how I can create an MD5 hash from a string within my flow?

Hi Ben_Love,


Currently, I am afraid that Flow is not able to be used to create MD5 hash from a string.


Please consider to submit an idea at Flow Ideas Forum, I will also collect and report it from my side.

Best regards,

Hi Mabel, 


Any chance there's a way to do an MD5 hash now?



Not applicable



I have found a solution by creating a HTTP POST request to this API (here is the documentation )


The trigger for my flow is "When a document is created" in OneDrive. Then, I get the file content with the OneDrive connector after which I do the HTTP POST. This is how it looks like in Power Automate:



I parse the response form the API which contains the MD5 key.


I hope my response will be of help to you.
