SharePoint Get File (properties only) truncates Description to 300 characters

Hey People,


I'm using Get files (properties only) to iterate over a SharePoint document library (happens to be Site Pages).

It's managing to pick up Announcement type pages and remarkably the body content (just a text webpart - I haven't touched the content type) is coming through in the Description property.

However it's only picking up 300 characters.


I've dug into the JSON behind Get file (properties only) and can see that the Description field is truncated to 300 characters 😞


Now I probably got lucky that webpart content came through into the properties at all, but does anyone have a nice way to pick up the textual content of a page so that it can be used in a flow, untruncated?


I'm going to experiment with the non properties only version next...

Did you tried using HTTP WEB REST API method?

Premium connectors aren't an option 😥


Hi @Craig_Humphrey ,
If HTTP WEB REST API is not an option because it is premium connector, what about "Sharepoint / Send an HTTP request to Sharepoint"? This is a standard connector.
