Here is what I'm trying to do :
The problem is that I can't find a way to get the file content (or name) from the link, in either Power Automate or PowerApps.
If I could use the function "Launch" or "Download" of PowerApps to pass the content of the file to Flow, it wouldn't be a problem.
I must also be able to detect if the link doesn't work (if the SharePoint file was renamed or deleted), and prompt the user to provide a functionnal link.
Any idea ?
This is pretty easy !!
What you need to do is Create a STRING type variable and set that variable with the link that you have, then use the action GET FILE CONTENT USING PATH and as an input to this action, pass the Variable value.

Thanks a lot !
I didn't realize that I could put the whole URL in the File Path.
This works for URL with path like (https://emc13.sharepoint.com/sites/VidyaSiteBasedLogging/SP_Document_library/folder/Document.docx).
But not with sharing link, I get the following error : "URL is not for this web\r\nclient".
I hope it's possible to access files with sharing link as well as "path" link. As I can't expect my users to update the link with anything else than the sharing link. Constructing the "path" link is too tedious not to be automated.
