Use of the ETag

Hey all,

 

 

In my Flow at one point I want to send a link that opens a generated word document in Microsoft Teams in View mode.

I found a way to open it but everytime the document opens I get an error.

 

 

So I need a link like this, with the ETag in Bold:

https://teams.microsoft.com/_#/docx/viewer/teams/https:~2F~2F<tenant>.sharepoint.com~2Fsites~2F<TeamName>~2FDocuments~2F<FolderName>~2F<FileName>.docx?threadId=19:<Channelid>@thread.skype&baseUrl=https:~2F~2F<tenant>.sharepoint.com~2Fsites~2F<SiteName>&fileId=285CAB80-E9E9-441E-822C-3A486EDFA7F4&ctx=files&viewerAction=view

So I retrieve the ETag from the previous step that contains the creation of a document.

But when my flow runs the ETag is returned this way in the link:

"{A6994BF5-8008-46C0-8BA4-970435CD2AD3},1"

So now my question is how can I get rid of the quotes and brackets so I only have the ETag numbers.

If this can be solved my Flow would be finished finally.

 

Thanks in advance

 

Kind regards

 

 

Tom

hi @Tom_Slosse  you can use now the expressions replace to delete all the quotes and brackets , like this

replace('Your STRING', '{') or replace('Your STRING', '"') to replace the quotes
