SharePoint File is Created -> Update Column with Link to Item

I am trying to create what I thought would be a simple flow for a Sharepoint library.

 

Step 1: "When a file is created (properties only)" action - I am referencing the whole library

Step 2: "Get File Content" action - "File Identiifier" = Link to item (This is where I am getting the error) "The response is not in a JSON format.

 

I am then trying to automatically write the files path into a column called "URL"

 

Step 3: "Update File"

Re: SharePoint File is Created -> Update Column with Link to Item

Hi @  Neolithe,

 

 

If you would like to use the "Get file Content" action,you should choose the "Identifier" dynamic content og the trigger in the File Identifier field of "Get file Content" action.

 

Please refer to screenshot below to create the flow:

The flow would run successfully as below:

Besides,The "Update file" action is used to update a exist file with another file content.

How to understand "I am then trying to automatically write the files path into a column called "URL" "?

Could you please explain more about the column which called "URL"? Is it a column you created? where is the column created in?

 

Please explain more details so we could provide a proper workaround for you.

 

Regards,
Alice Zhang
