File ID/Identifiers in gibberish - why?

Hello,

 

I have a flow where I want to do something when a file is created in a folder. Unlinke my other flows with this trigger, the outputs in this Flow come out scrambled, al though I made the flow trigger for testing - this won't work because I am using conditions to filter our the file path, ID, etc.

 

Here is a screenshot. I blurred some stuff out because I wasn't sure if it can be used agaisnt me by bad actors.

Also, to mention, the folder I am spying on is a folder created from a service on the web called "ODrive" which auto-creates a folder in my OneDrive. In other words, the directory you see wasn't made by me but is picked up by the trigger as a valid directory.

Hi @SolarWill,

 

I have some updates for you.

The outputs of trigger When a file is created will be encoded automatically.

Please use the trigger When a file is created (properties only) instead, which will return the outputs as expected.

Hi @SolarWill,

 

Thanks for feedback.

The issue could be reproduced by me.

To test this issue, I have created a flow with OneDrive for Business trigger “When a file is created”. I uploaded the file manually though, the outputs of the trigger are not as expected.

I will help report it and back to you later.
