Pull an Excel Spreadsheet via a read only HTTP link

I apologize if someone has asked this before but I couldn't find a similar thread.  


I have a link that was shared to me from an Excel File stored in Sharepoint.  It is linked to my ID but I was wondering if I could create a Power Automate Flow where I could pull the file out and download it automatically. 


I tried with a HTTP Get connection but I am getting a "Moved Permanently" error.

Hi @ISUTri,


Unfortunately, there is no way could get the file that shared just allow read-only.

This is designed by Microsoft for file security.

@v-litu-msftthank you for the response!  What type of permissions do I need to see the file in Power Automate?  Access to the directory it's in?
