Link to Item Details and not the file itself?

I have a simple power automate flow with an action of Get Files (properties only) running against a doc library.

This pulls all the items in one go. Nothing special

I then do a condition and loop through the items and send an email if yes...etc...

 

The link to item (see below) is actually a link to the file directly (a pdf or doc, etc..).

How can I get a link to the "item details" so I can easily update the meta data info.

You can supply the URL of the edit form (to edit the properties) or the display form (to view document properties).

The URL for the edit form will be similar to:

https://YourTenant.sharepoint.com/sites/YourSite/YourLibrary/Forms/EditForm.aspx?ID=[Document ID from Dynamic properties]

The URL for the display form will be similar to:

https://YourTenant.sharepoint.com/sites/YourSite/YourLibrary/Forms/DispForm.aspx?ID=[Document ID from Dynamic properties]

 

Let me know if you need additional help.

Hi!

I would suggest the following:

open your Sharepoint library in the browser, so its URL will like like this:

https://<yourSharepointDomain>/sites/<yourSharepointSite>/<yourSharepointLibrary>/Forms/AllItems.aspx

 

Now, if you filter by item ID, you will get the following URL:

https://<yourSharepointDomain>/sites/<yourSharepointSite>/<yourSharepointLibrary>/Forms/AllItems.aspx?FilterField1=ID&FilterValue1=<YourItemID>&FilterType1=Counter

 

Just replace <yourSharepointDomain>, <yourSharepointSite> <yourItemID>and assign the ones for your scenario

Hope this helps

that's the odd thing... I don't see the document id value.

I was accustomed to a SP List and normally you see the ID value there...

Then I remembered the "trick" - by default you don't see all the variables in the list.

Sometimes you have to start typing it in !

That was easy - sorry to have wasted people's times.
