SFTP actions suddenly missing



we have a flow in our project which is triggered by a file changed on SFTP which is working as expected. Now I want to create another flow so I chose from an template and my trigger is "SFTP - When a file is added or modified". Now I want to add another action to that trigger "SFTP - Get File Content" but I cannot find. It says' there are not any actions found for SFTP (see screenshots below). I don't understand it because as mentioned it's correctly working within a flow created some time ago.


Does please anyone have an idea how to solve it ?

I believe this has to do with a newer version of the sFTP connector. I talked with Microsoft couple weeks ago and they had deprecated the sFTP connectors but have newer versions of them.

My guess is that you have the old version as your trigger.

To test this please try creating a new flow woth the same actions..

Note: when Microsoft deprecates connectors or actions, they hid them from the designer. All flows that have these are grandfathered until the they remove completely.

Hi @pitrs ,


I have made a test on my side and don't have the issue that you mentioned, I could add the SFTP - Get file content action as below:



Please take a try to create a new flow and check if you could add the action now.

@v-alzhan-msft Yes, those I a see as well byt please notice it's SFTP - SSH not only SFTP. If I click on SFTP there are simply no actions listed. The only way how I was able to solve it is that I "Saved As" my previous flow as a new one and edited it as needed. 


@Jcook Yes, the SFTP connector is older (created several months ago) so this might be the reason. Do you propose to create new SFTP connector ?
