SharePoint URL size limits blocking flows?

Apparently, the limit of characters allowed in a SharePoint URL is 255

Item URL: 

https://abcdefghi.sharepoint.com/sites/ProductDevelopment/Shared%20Documents/01%20Sales%20Package/Service%20Pricing%20and%20Internal%20Business%20Case/03%20SLA%20OLA%20-%20DCEFG%20ABC/Schedule%HIJKLM%20-%20NOPQRS%20TUVWXYZ%20-%20ABCD%20EFGHI_20180406.docx?d=w123456789012345678901234567890

 

Results from running a flow on the above Item:

"status": 502,
"message": "Invalid URL value.\n\nA URL field contains invalid data. Please check the value and try again.\r\nclientRequestId: xxxxxxxxxxxxx\r\nserviceRequestId: xxxxxxxxx",

 

My flow breaks when creating a list item with and using the lengthy URL as a hyperlink inside a list item

 

is there really a limit in that blocks my Flow?

Re: SharePoint URL size limits blocking flows?

Hi @ Jes,

 

Could you please share a screenshot of the configuration of your flow?

 

Will your flow breaks when creating a list item with and using the lengthy URL  that you mentioned as a hyperlink inside a list item?

Does the flow would works fine when creating a list item with and using the URL  less than 255 characters as a hyperlink inside a list item?

 

Please refer to link below to learn more about about how to increase the number of characters limit in hynamic column type:

Please let me know if your issue could be solved.

Alice Zhang
