Sharepoint Get file content - Error executing the api


I'm trying to connect to Sharpoint document library to get a Word Document.

My library is in a subsite, maybe that might be the issue,, but I am not able to get the File Identifier of the document.


It will show me an "Error executing the api" error.

I tried a few time to peek the code which sometimes let me go through,, but not this time..


I also deleted the library and recreated it once. But same result.

Has anyone got the same error?

Hi @Anonymous 


In the screenshot, You use teh trigger when an item is created -- SO this is specific to the list items and if you have attachments on the list then you should use the get attachment content action. 


For the files, you should change the trigger to when a file is created instead. 


Hope this Helps!
