Hi @Domainator,

 

Do you want to update the display text for the hyperlink within your SharePoint list item using Microsoft Flow?

 

I afraid that there is no way to update the display text for the hyperlink within your SharePoint list item in Microsoft Flow currently, if you would like this feature to be added in Microsoft Flow, please submit an idea to Flow Ideas Forum:

Use InfoPath to add Hyperlink description after "Show advanced view"

Has anyone had any luck leveraging REST API in a Flow: HTTP or Flow: Send an HTTP Request to Sharepoint to achieve the link/display issue for hyperlinks?

Hi @bdc604

 

I had a client ask for the ability to export individual items to Excel.  SPO export function by default exports all items so long story short I ended up using Flow.  I used the below action to update the URL to the CSV file and changed the display name to "CSV"

 

TestURL2 is the column name

Hi !
Thanks for your idea !
But that's doesn't work.

I have create my http request, my JSon is valid, but when it's executed, I have an error 412. 

"La valeur «  » ETag de la demande ne correspond pas à la valeur « "4" » ETag de l'objet."

This is in Frech, but that's said : "the value "" ETag of the demande doesn't match to value "4" ETag of the Object".

Please, can you help me ?

 

@bdc604 - yeah I just did this (updating a list item's URL value, both display text and URL) via a REST API call like the one below.  The name of my hyperlink field is "URL" and one of the properties we're setting is "Url", so it might be a little confusing in my example:

 

Type: Send an HTTP Request to SharePoint

 

Site Address: https://your.sharePoint.com/site/URL

 

Method: POST

 

Uri: _api/web/lists/GetByTitle('YourListNameHere')/items(@{triggerBody()['ID']})

 

Headers (key : value):

accept : application/json;odata=verbose

content-type : application/json;odata=verbose

X-HTTP-Method : MERGE

IF-MATCH : *

 

Body:

{'__metadata': { 'type': 'SP.Data.ClientsListItem' },
'URL':
{
'__metadata': { 'type': 'SP.FieldUrlValue' },
'Description': 'Google',
'Url': 'https://www.google.com'
}
}

 

Hope that helps!

 

Andy

 
 

@Domainator ,

 

You will need to use a REST API to add the hyperlink field. It is really easy to do if you follow the steps in this article:
