Pass file content with custom connector to Azure Function

Hi all

Can anyone explain me how to pass the content of a SharePoint file (via the get file from sharepoint action) to a custom connector that accepts the content of a file as a input parameter? The file content will be processed in a Azure Function.
How does the swagger definition looks like?

Thanks in advance.

Kind regards


Not sure I understand. Why are you using a custom connector for this? Power Automate already has a Get File connector. If you need your function to call Get File, make a Flow with an HTTP trigger. If you need your flow to call your function, make a flow with an HTTP Request Action. I don't see where a custom connector comes into play.

I believe you need to use

"format": "binary",
"type": "string"


Also, please take a look at our open source repo where you will find hundreds of connectors and some of these connector implement the feature you are looking for : PowerPlatformConnectors/certified-connectors at master · microsoft/PowerPlatformConnectors · GitHub
