trying to do a simple thing: obtaining the link of a file to add it into the link to file option in an approval action
I got the below error: "The file id is not valid" .. and the file exists and it is valid 🙂
If I select the file directly ( without using variable ) it is working, but of course, this is not usefull for me 🙂
Do you know why this error is raised and how to solve ?
Thanks a lot !

What’s the previous action of Create share link? Is it action Create file? Could you share a full screenshot of your flow?
According to your description, I created a flow to create share link. I found that when the File box contains a dynamic content, it will return the error message “The file Id is not valid”.
However, if I get the file from a previous action Create file, then it will run successfully.
Flow screenshot likes below:
As a workaround, please try to add an action Create file first, then get the file from the previous action.
Besides, I am afraid the dynamic content in the file name likes what you are using has not been supported yet, if you need this feature, please submit a request on Flow Ideas Forum:
