Send HTTP POST with email attachment

Hi, 

 

I'm currently trying to create a flow that is triggered when a new email is received and for each of the attachments creates an HTTP requests which posts the content to a backend server for further processing of the file.

 

I tried setting the file as content body and also as a request parameter' file. In all cases, I'm receiving that the file is Null at the backend.

I've also tried posting the array of attachments and I get a Json like this:

[{
	@odata.type = #Microsoft.OutlookServices.FileAttachment,
	Id = AQMkADNmNWYwMWViLT...,
	Name = myPhoto.jpg,
	ContentType = image / jpeg,
	Size = 19092,
	ContentBytes = null
}, {
	@odata.type = #Microsoft.OutlookServices.FileAttachment,
	Id = AQMkADNmNWYwMWViLTcx... ,
	Name = My PDF.pdf,
	ContentType = application / pdf,
	Size = 44972,
	ContentBytes = null
}]

The problem I have is that contentBytes is always null. If I try to loop trough each of the attachments and get the content, I post a null value in the request body.

 

What's the proper way to post an email attachment to an HTTP request?

Re: Send HTTP POST with email attachment

After serveral hours of debugging and crying in the corner, I just figured out what was wrong. I wasn't including the email attachments from the initial trigger action. Make sure to select "Include email attachment".

The attachment is encoded in Base64.
