Power Automate Update Dynamic SharePoint Item

Flow.png

 

What is the syntax for the Item field when using dynamic inputs for Site Address and List Name?

I have tried "Title": "My title" but that does not work.

Ok, I was challenged by the question and found that there is a way to do it if you know the field names you are changing.  The key was to build out the Item for the list in JSON.  Here's a working sample.

I'm not sure you can use dynamic inputs for the Site Address and Listname.  The connector has to be established when the flow is created and must be tied to a specific Site and List.

The integer ID of the item in SharePoint goes in the ID field.

What goes in the Item field?

The hint text says "Item with changed properties".

Are you saying I should put the ID in the ID field and the Item field?

Where do I put the updated field values?
