Can't Create Flow to Create page in a OneNote section - error

Cannot create Flow to 'Create page in a section' in OneNote for a specific notebook.  The notebook is stored in a Sharepoint subsite.

I can select the Notebook Key for a OneNote that is stored in our O365 SharePoint, but when I try to select a Section Id I get the following error:
Could not retrieve values. Error; unknown error code encountered when attempting to retrieve notebook details. Code: 20143, clientRequestId: 9997E811-538A-4C47-80E5-C12B17766FAF

I am able to navigate to, view, and edit the notebook and section, so my permissions look to be fine.

I have tried multiple web browsers and operating systems, including IE11 on Windows 10.

I can select other notebooks and am able to select a section inside of them, but not this specific OneNote notebook.

Screenshot of the error available here:


Any ideas on where to go from here?

Hi @ JasonW,


How could you select the Notebook Key for a OneNote that is stored in our O365 SharePoint?

I have made a test on my side and I couldn't select the Notebook Key in action "Create page in section" for a OneNote that is stored in my O365 SharePoint, so your issue couldn't confirmed on my side.


I would make more research on why I couldn't select the Notebook Key action "Create page in section" for a OneNote that is stored in my O365 SharePoint and why you meet the error that you mentioned when select a Section Id in action "Create page in section" for a OneNote that is stored in my O365 SharePoint, and once I figure it out, I would reply here.

Any resolution on this issue? I have the same problem.


I have the same issue.

I have the same error.


Did anyone find an answer? I want to create a note with a pdf, when a pdf is stored on sharepoint.
