Get File Properties not sending managed metadata values back in body

We had a flow that ran without problems until the week before last.


Recently, when using the action "Get File Properties" or the action "Get Files (Properties only)" for SharePoint items in our environment, the values of the managed metadata columns are no longer sent when the properties are looked up. So they are missing inside of the returned body. All other values are returned.






The lookup happens to a document library and the item we are looking for is a document set.


We have already set the limit of entries to no limit for performance, i.e. all columns should be transmitted. Since the solution was successful before, we hope that others may have a solution or similar experience.

Update Post:


so I run several tests in our environment:


Retriev managed metadata from Documents in a Library - works

Retriev managed metadata from a Document sets in a Library - doesnt work (anymore!?)


We had your solutions running successfully with retrieving managed metadata also from document sets, so there had to be some unknown changes?!  Seems we need to open a case 😞


Working with SharePoint Designer and create a SP 2010 Workflows works like a charm, but is deprecated.

Next Update:


I have found older entries of successfully running flows. In those runs, we see that the request for managed metadata columns worked well by using "@odata.type": "#Microsoft.Azure.Connectors.SharePoint.SPListExpandedTaxonomy" and returns the expected values. Also from document sets.


This Odata.type call is now missing when trying to retrieve managed metadata values from document sets since about last week!


Does anyone have similar experiences?
