Microsoft Flow ModifiedBy dynamic field returns null/empty

Hi all,

 

Does anyone experience the issue with Microsoft Flow when trying to get value of ModifiedByEmail dynamic column from SharePoint? I have the flow set up on a document library to trigger when a file is created or modified. However, all ModifiedBy columns (ModifiedByDisplayName, ModifiedByEmail) always return me null/or empty. Please advise. Thanks

Hi @nhueluongvi

 

I can confirm that I'm also experiencing this issue, but it's only happening in document libraries and not in lists. Perhaps you can submit this issue in the I Found A Bug forum below:

Thanks Fausto, I'll submit a bug to them shortly. Just to clarify, I was able to use the flow to get ModifiedBy columns in a document library last week, probably some changes that Microsoft made recently that created this bug 😞 

 

Thanks again

Probably. If you can, go back to that Flow history and see the last successful run. If it shows all the ModifiedBy properties, take a screenshot and uploaded with the bug.
