How do I get the Folder GUID of a newly created folder?

I need to retrieve the folder GUID for a folder I have created using the 'Create New folder' action in my flow. How can I do this? I do not need the Folder ID but the SharePoint GUID of the new folder. Is this possible to get from any of the actions?

 

I have looked at 'Get folder metadata' and 'Get file properties' but these doesn't appear to return the GUID only the Folder ID.

Hi @Verve,

 

You could use a Send an HTTP request for that and retrieve that column value via a REST API call.

 

Below is an example of that approach.

 

_api/web/lists/getbytitle('Documents')/items(@{outputs('Create_new_folder')?['body/ID']})?$select=GUID
