Using Dynamic Content as part of File Identifier

Trying to use an input in a manual trigger to build out the end of a file path for copying files.  Here is the flow configured:

 

Capture.PNG

 

And here is the error:

Capture1.PNG

 

As you can see, the input parameter, IT-001, is showing up correctly as part of the filepath string.  But for some reason, it is erroring out.

 

It is worth noting that when i replace the input paramter in the filepath with the explicit filename IT-001, it works.

 

Is there something I need to do with dynamic content as part of a filepath in order for it to be interpreted correctly?

Re: Using Dynamic Content as part of File Identifier

Hi @grhaberer 

 

List folder action does not calculate dynamic values

 

Right before list folder action, add get folder metadata using path action (this accepts dynamic values)

 

Then call the list folder action and set the File Identifier property to FileLocator dynamic content from get folder metadata using path action
