Sending multiple Attachements via Mail by pre-using the "Select-Operator"

Hello Folks,

 

I am trying to set up a flow which sends an E-mail with multiple attachements. I found some threads which descibes the datapreparation process via Apply-to-each loop. 

 

https://flow.microsoft.com/de-de/blog/multiple-attachments-single-email/

http://saltypc.com/?p=619

 

In my experience the Apply-to-each approach consumes a lot of time. Instead I would like to use the Array-"Select" operator and set the output of this operation as the new attachement input for the "Send an E-Mail" Operation.

 

Sadly this doesn't seem to work for me. I am getting the error that

 -> "Parameter 'Attachment Name' cannot be null or empty.
 
Below you can see a snapshot from the test-input of the step "Send an E-Mail" the Attachements-Input seems for me valid. 
 
[...] okmark:_MailOriginal'></span>\n\n<p class=MsoNormal><span lang=DE style='mso-ansi-language:DE'><o:p>&nbsp;</o:p></span></p>\n\n</div>\n\n</body>\n\n</html>\n","Attachments":[{"Attachment Name":"Test-250724.pdf","Attachment Content":"JVBERi0xLjQKJYCAgIAKMSAwIYWlsZXIKPD [...] MiAwIFIgL0lEIFs8kEDI5NDU4CiUlRU9GDQo="},{"Attachment Name":"Test_Sign.svg","Attachment Content":"PD94bWbj0 [...] DQo8L3N2Zz4="}],"Importance":"Normal","IsHtml":true}}
 
Could you give me an idea which might be wrong here in this approach?
 
Best Regards,
Lukas

Hi @GBLukas 

 

Can you please post a screenshot of the flow?

 

Can you ensure that the attachments array has the attributes as:

{

"Name" : "filename.extension",

"ContentBytes" : contentbytes

}

 

You need to ensure that the attachments array that you are creating has these attributes (Name and ContentBytes as mandatory). 

 

If you could share a screeshot we might better identify the issue and assist you with this. 

 

Hope this Helps!

Hi @yashag2255 

 

I wasnt beware of the fact that the array must have the specific key Names "Name" and "ContentBytes". I changed the Key-Names and now its working like a charme.

 

Thank you very much!

 

Best Regards,

Lukas
