How to set "File Name" property on "Create File" SharePoint action dynamically

Hello,

I have created a flow with a CDS trigger When a record is selected. In this trigger I have a user input of type File. Below the trigger I have a SharePoint action to Create File.

 

I need to set the File Name property of Create File action to the file name of the file that user would select. I tried Dynamic Content pane but no luck.  Can we have any workaround to get this done?

Hi @KAL 

 

You can get the filename using the below expression

triggerBody()['file']['name']
 
For the file content you need the following
triggerBody()['file']['contentBytes']

HI @KAL 

 

To get the file name you can add a text input and ask user to add file name. 

here is an example:
