Sometimes Get_file_content_using_path_2 Fails - "status": 404 "message": "File not found

Hello all

the function "Get_file_content_using_path_2" is working most of the times.

However, sometimes it fails on getting the content.

This is weird as the content is there.

Anyone has the same or even has a solution?

Hi ChristepheD,

From issue description we may think 2 possibilities for 404 error. One is that SharePoint send correct response to flow but flow miss it and show 404. The other is SharePoint send flow server 404 due to file issues. We may use the client request id in error message to check back end trace. So to get to know root cause of it, I will suggest you open a case to Microsoft.

Or you may add Delay action before 'Get file content' to check if it will help.


Hello @mequan ,

The file is there I can open the file without a problem. A delay was my first option but even if I re-run the failed flow the issue keeps happening.

Rights to the file are OK just like the other files in that folder.

I will log a case at Microsoft than to see what is wrong.

thank you.
