New trigger - 'For a selected file' ID - no dynamic content yet

Having stumbled across the recent addition of the 'For a selected file' trigger (because it broke all of the Flows I had using 'For a selected item' for document libraries), I'm now in the process of rectifying the broken Flows.

 

I noticed that the ID dynamic content for the new trigger doesn't appear to have been set up. In the meantime, I believe you can use the expression triggerBody()['entity']['FileId'] . (Note: I'm yet to test the expression, I copied it from another action, will update if it doesn't work).

Hi @Anonymous ,

 

Indeed, as you have described, Dynamic content may not be available when configuring certain fields.

You could use the following two methods to solve the problem.

The first is the Expression you mentioned. In fact, all Dynamic content can be represented by Expression.

triggerBody()?['entity']?['FileId']

The other is to use Compose to get the specified Dynamic content, then configure Compose in the specified field.

Please take a try.
