Outlook Attachment to Planner - Why is it asking for a http link?

Greetings - I've created a flow that:
1) on incoming emails

 - marked low importance
- with a text marker in subject 
- sent to a specific folder

2) Creates a Planner task
- with the name of sender and subject as the task name
- text body of the email in the "description" field
- With the email attachment (Remember this one...)

3) Responds to the sender with
- task card name
- a canned message

Now it's the email attachment that is the sticky wicket - It's forcing me to use something in the "Reference Resource Link" area and it makes my attachment a link instead of just the attachment.

Task ID - Planner ID
Description - The plain text (HTML to text)
------
Reference Alias - 1 - Planner ID
Reference Resource link - : [
{
"alias": @{body('Create_a_task')?['id']},
"resourceLink": "INSERT WEB ADDRESS HERE",
"type": "Word"
}
]

 

Is there a way to NOT have to do that and just put the *($&% attachment in the planner task?

Re: Outlook Attachment to Planner - Why is it asking for a http link?

Hi @mattshursen,

 

Could you please share a screenshot of the configuration of your flow?

 

I afraid that there is no any way to achieve your needs to create a planner task with the email attachment.

 

Best regrads,

As per the diagram above, my issue is based off the template flow HERE.  The "Update Task Details" portion is where I'm having the issue - I can get the attachment to show as a word doc (based on the type) but that will only bring you to the link above in "Refernece Alias 1"

 

Here's the odd thing - in the dynamic content I can select "Attachment" for the link sometimes - but that still doesn't work.

 

 

Is there any way that planner can be updated with attachments with a flow?  I'm not talking just my case above, but overall.

 

Thanks @v-yuazh-msft
