Rename 1 email attachment as other attached item in message

Hi everyone, 


I have the following problem, I am being able to save attachments in a sharepoint folder (the easy part). However now in the same email are attached 2 files with the following name (examples):

File 1: John Doe - Certificate 

File 2: Summary (the name of this file is always Summary)

I need to save file 2 as "Summary +  File 1 name" so the final result for file 2 is going to be: Summary John Doe Certificate. So In my sharepoint folder I will need to save the following 2 PDF files: 

File 1: John Doe - Certificate


File 2: Summary John Doe - Certificate


Need your help on this, thank you so much. this is the end of my flow so far>

Re: Rename 1 email attachment as other attached item in message

To figure out which file is the one you should rename, you would add a condition to Flow and compare the file name to includes Summary.

For the second file you should create a Concat expression to append the full file name of File 1 to File 2 upon it's creation, while putting Summary in front of it.

To do this, instead of saving the 2nd attachment directly, use the Get attachment content action and then the Create file action, and in the File Name entry box, you would put your Concat expression as the file name. Example: ConcatFileName.png

concat(split(triggerBody()?['Summary {FilenameWithExtension}'))

NOTE: The above is an exampe, your Concat expression would contain the word Summary and the File name and path for File 1.

If you could provide an expanded screenshot of your Flow and steps, and of any detailed error messages you're receiving we could likely better assist you.
