Hi,

i got the solution the problem was with "ContentBytes". In Approval mail system content key is required and not contentbytes. Now my flow is working fine...

Hi!
So in your append to array you currently assign the DisplayName from Dynamic content menu, retrieved from “Get Attachments” action to the Name property... why don't you do the same with 'Content bytes' property and assign as its value the Attachment Content from Dynamic content menu, retrieved also from “Get Attachment Contents” action?
Hope this helps

Hi,

Actually the flow is getting terminated in condition stage only and the condition always flows through No..... Screenshot attached.

Ooops!
You are right, this seems to be the problem!
My suggestion is, to replace YES and add the following expression from dynamic content menu instead:
true

Hope this helps

HI @efialttes ... Thnx for replying..

 

The flow is working now but without any attachments... 😞

As was suggested i had even replaced ContentBytes expression with Attachment Content from Dynamic content menu, retrieved also from “Get Attachment Contents” action.... still no luck...!!

 

 

Hi!
I guess you followed the recommendations on how to add attachments to an Approval, right?
