Approvals Error

Buenos días chicos 
¿Podrían ayudarme a corregir el siguiente error?

Sucede que me gustaría adjuntar todos los archivos que subes mediante Formularios y enviarlo por correo para aprobar o rechazar, según el criterio del usuario evaluador.

Por ahora, el detalle es que al generar la solicitud de aprobación y adjuntar los documentos me sale el siguiente error:


Solicitud fallida. Código de error: "InvalidRequestContent". Mensaje de error: "El contenido de la solicitud no era válido y no se pudo deserializar: 'No se pudo encontrar el miembro' ContentBytes 'en el objeto de tipo' ApprovalsConnectorAttachment '. Ruta' adjuntos [0] .ContentBytes ', línea 1 , posición 559. ' . ". 

Cabe mencionar que el flujo no genera error al guardarlo



Saludos,

Jhonatan Ora Badillo

@JhonaOB1993 I think I understand your problem.

 

As you already know, the Approval action accepts attachment array in Format

 

CFernandes_0-1597762403983.png

 

But Send an email accepts an 'Contentbytes'.

 

{
"Name": @{items('Apply_to_each')?['DisplayName']},
"ContentBytes": @{body('Get_file_content')?['body']}
}

and then pass it to the Send an Email action.

Now that being said,  it seems that you stumbled over a known bug. You would need to manage this in your Power Automate. 

 

I hope this helps.

Hi @JhonaOB1993 

 

@Tom_Slosse  is right. (Google Translate) Debe enviarlo en inglés, de lo contrario, la gente no podrá ayudarlo.

 

Translating the question:

Good morning guys
Could you help me correct the following error?

It happens that I would like to attach all the files that you upload using Forms and send it by mail to approve or reject, according to the criterion of the evaluating user.

For now, the detail is that when generating the approval request and attaching the documents I get the following error:


Request failed. Error code: "InvalidRequestContent". Error message: "The content of the request was invalid and could not be deserialized: 'Could not find member' ContentBytes' in object of type 'ApprovalsConnectorAttachment'. Path 'attachments [0] .ContentBytes', line 1 , position 559. '. ".

It is worth mentioning that the flow does not generate an error when saving it



Regards,

Jhonatan Ora Badillo

 

The approval Power Automate expects something like this:

[
  {
    "name": "file 1 name",
    "content": "file 1 content"
  },
{
    "name": "file 2 name",
    "content": "file 2 content"
  }
]

 

You have to do the following:

  1. Create a string variable
  2. For each attachment
  3. Get the file contents and name
  4. Append to the array:
{
    "name": "file 1 name",
    "content": "file 1 content"
  }

 

Add this to your approval, Power Automate.

 

Can you please check if and let me know if you have any questions?

Good morning, dear.
I attach the screenshots of the flow.

Please could you help me with a solution? Now I get the following error

BadRequest. Request failed. Error code: "AttachmentContentNotValidBase64String". Error message: "The content of the attachment" imgAvInBev_anonymous.png "is not a valid Base64 encoded string."

@CFernandes thanks a lot for your answer.
Could you help me with following question, please?
It happens that now you are sending an email to approve for each file (Ideally, you should send everything in a single email, since users could attach up to 3 files as support).
Also, when sending the email to notify if it was approved or rejected, it generates the following error.


In condition: ActionFailed. Action error. No dependent action was successful.
On Email: OpenApiOperationParameterValidationFailed. The "inputs.parameters" element of the workflow operation "Send_Email_ (V2)" of type "OpenApiConnection" is not valid. Error details: Required property "emailMessage / Attachments / 0 / ContentBytes" is missing in the "SendEmailV2" API operation.

@JhonaOB1993 Are you using an 'SendEmailV2' action in your Power Automate? Can you end me a screenshot of it. 

Of course :)

The error that is generating me is the following:

The "inputs.parameters" element of the workflow operation "Send_Email_ (V2) _3" of type "OpenApiConnection" is not valid. Error details: The required property "emailMessage / Attachments / 0 / ContentBytes" is missing from the "SendEmailV2" API operation.

I would like the flow, then approve or reject, to attach all these files and email them to the requester and get the result with the approving user's comment.

In this case, I am testing with a .PNG file

Thank you!

Thank you very much!!!! I see that it does attach the files and send the mail :)
Just one last inquiry, please.
Do you know why I refused the shipment to the recipient?
In this case, the users requesting approval are external and I see that they handle .gmail .hotmail domains or others.

Thank you!

JhonaOB1993_0-1597763824837.png

 

@JhonaOB1993 The error is not related to Power Automate 🙂 The Error you are getting  "Your message was not delivered because the recipient's email provider rejected it"

 

That's the default message you get when the sender's IP is blocked. Which should not happen if the sender is O365.

 

You might want to contact your Office 365 Exchange Administrator(your IT guy), he should provide you more insight into this problem.

 

I hope this helps.

 

Thanks for the info :)
Please, could you indicate the link, email or telephone number to contact me.
I would like to have the flow ready today :)

Thank you very much!!!

Hola,

Estoy construyendo un flujo de aprobación a partir de un formulario en forms con adjuntos que primero va y almacena los archivos en Sharepoint y luego dispara un flujo de Aprobación. Cuando ejecuto el flujo corre bien hasta que llega a la aprobación donde me sale el siguiente error:

 

Error de la solicitud. Código de error: "AttachmentContentNotValidBase64String". Mensaje de error: "El contenido del archivo adjunto "RAA OCTUBRE 2020_Gisela Tamayo 1.pdf" no es una cadena válida codificada en Base64.".

 

He creado la variable y anexado a la matriz con "content" pero no funciona.

 

{
"Name": "@{items('Aplicar_a_cada_uno')['name']}",
"content": @{body('Obtener_contenido_de_archivo_mediante_ruta_de_acceso')?['body']}
}

 

Agradezco su ayuda.

September User Group Success Story: Reading Dynamics 365 & Power Platform User Group

The Reading Dynamics 365 and Power Platform User Group is a community-driven initiative that started in September 2022. It has quickly earned recognition for its enthusiastic leadership and resilience in the face of challenges. With a focus on promoting learning and networking among professionals in the Dynamics 365 and Power Platform ecosystem, the group has grown steadily and gained a reputation for its commitment to its members!   The group, which had its inaugural event in January 2023 at the Microsoft UK Headquarters in Reading, has since organized three successful gatherings, including a recent social lunch. They maintain a regular schedule of four events per year, each attended by an average of 20-25 enthusiastic participants who enjoy engaging talks and, of course, pizza.   The Reading User Group's presence is primarily spread through LinkedIn and Meetup, with the support of the wider community. This thriving community is managed by a dedicated team consisting of Fraser Dear, Tim Leung, and Andrew Bibby, who serves as the main point of contact for the UK Dynamics 365 and Power Platform User Groups.   Andrew Bibby, an active figure in the Dynamics 365 and Power Platform community, nominated this group due to his admiration for the Reading UK User Group's efforts. He emphasized their remarkable enthusiasm and success in running the group, noting that they navigated challenges such as finding venues with resilience and smiles on their faces. Despite being a relatively new group with 20-30 members, they have managed to achieve high attendance at their meetings.   The group's journey began when Fraser Dear moved to the Reading area and realized the absence of a user group catering to professionals in the Dynamics 365 and Power Platform space. He reached out to Andrew, who provided valuable guidance and support, allowing the Reading User Group to officially join the UK Dynamics 365 and Power Platform User Groups community.   One of the group's notable achievements was overcoming the challenge of finding a suitable venue. Initially, their "home" was the Microsoft UK HQ in Reading. However, due to office closures, they had to seek a new location with limited time. Fortunately, a connection with Stephanie Stacey from Microsoft led them to Reading College and its Institute of Technology. The college generously offered them event space and support, forging a mutually beneficial partnership where the group promotes the Institute and encourages its members to support the next generation of IT professionals.   With the dedication of its leadership team, the Reading Dynamics 365 and Power Platform User Group is poised to continue growing and thriving! Their story exemplifies the power of community-driven initiatives and the positive impact they can have on professional development and networking in the tech industry. As they move forward with their upcoming events and collaborations with Reading College, the group is likely to remain a valuable resource for professionals in the Reading area and beyond.

September featured user group leader

 Ayonija Shatakshi, a seasoned senior consultant at Improving, Ohio, is a passionate advocate for M365, SharePoint, Power Platform, and Azure, recognizing how they synergize to deliver top-notch solutions. Recently, we asked Ayonija to share her journey as a user group leader, shedding light on her motivations and the benefits she's reaped from her community involvement.      Ayonija embarked on her role as a user group leader in December 2022, driven by a desire to explore how the community leveraged various Power Platform components. When she couldn't find a suitable local group, she decided to create one herself!    Speaking about the impact of the community on her professional and personal growth, Ayonija says, "It's fascinating to witness how everyone navigates the world of Power Platform, dealing with license constraints and keeping up with new features. There's so much to learn from their experiences.:        Her favorite aspect of being a user group leader is the opportunity to network and engage in face-to-face discussions with fellow enthusiasts, fostering deeper connections within the community. Offering advice to budding user group leaders, Ayonija emphasized the importance of communication and consistency, two pillars that sustain any successful community initiative.      When asked why she encourages others to become user group leaders, Ayonija said, "Being part of a user group is one of the best ways to connect with experienced professionals in the same field and glean knowledge from them. If there isn't a local group, consider starting one; you'll soon find like-minded individuals."      Her highlight from the past year as a user group leader was witnessing consistent growth within the group, a testament to the thriving community she has nurtured. Advocating for user group participation, Ayonija stated, "It's the fastest route to learning from the community, gaining insights, and staying updated on industry trends."   Check out her group: Cleveland Power Platform User Group
