Multiple Attachments on Approval

Hello,

 

I have followed a few tutorials in an attempt to build a flow that will create an approval from a sharepoint list and include multiple attachments. I am running into an issue where the output sent to the array variable is showing as "Click to download"

Here is what that portion of the flow looks like:

I assume you mean the "Click to Download" link in the Output section of the run.  That's typical.  Anytime the output reaches a certain size of JSON it stops displaying it and makes you download it into another browser window to display.  Whenever you have something that includes the JSON representation of file content it exceeds that threshold.  Its just the way the editor handles it and doesn't affect the outcome.

Thanks, that’s good to know.  I assumed it was an issue because I am not seeing the attachments in the approvals app. The flow seems to run successfully, but it just doesn’t seem to attach the files.

There are extensions for Edge and Chrome that will format JSON.  If you do that you can download the output and take a look at what is being attached.  If you do download the output it should look something like the screenshot below.  If its blank then something about your retrieval isn;t working because your array is null.

The output does look like your example, it just never makes it to the approval. Everything else works fine with the approval. I’ll troubleshoot the approval action a some more.  Thanks!

So it looks like it the attachments are showing on the approval if I view it from my email, but I have been focussed on the approval app in MS Teams. The attachment does not show up there.  Is there something different that needs to be done to ensure that the attachments populates in the Teams Approvals App?
