Get Files (Properties Only) challenges

I am trying to use the Sharepoint:Get Files (Properties Only) action in order to update a column when then file name matches a certain value.  However the Get Files action only returns 100 rows of data.  When I change the "Top Count" under Advanced Options,  the function errors out with a "Bad Gateway" message!!  Any help would be appreciated.

Re: Get Files (Properties Only) challenges



Could you please share a screenshot of your flow's configuration?

Is the amount of the files that you want to retrieve from your SharePoint library more than 100?


I have made a test on my side and don't have the issue that you mentioned. My flow's configuration as below:4.JPG

The flow works successfully as below:5.JPG



If you specify a number is more than 100 within the Top Count field of the "Get files (Properties only)" action and the "Get files (properties only)" action failed, I afraid that the "Get files (Properties only)" action has up to its limit. In other words, the "Get files (Properties only)" action could only retrieve 100 records at most currently.
