Filter Array fails for Output of Get Files (property only) action

I want to filter the output of the GET FILES  (property only) action with FILTER ARRAY action. 

This fails because the output is not defined as an array.



while when using list folder the Filter Array action works.


Is this a bug that can be fixed?

Hi @ErichH,


Could you share more details about your scenario? What do you want to achieve by using Filter array?


Per my test, I found that there is no return value for Title, it is null. While you could use Name (file name) instead of Title.


Please have a try with it on your side.



Best regards,

Re: Filter Array fails for Output of Get Files (property only) action

interesting. I see in the list of dynamic content the field TITLE (although without description).
Could it be part of standard sharepoint list? Should it be filled with a meaningful value if part of the standard list setup (e.g. could contain (Display)Name).


the objective of using filter array is to handle complex filters and especially "CONTAINS" and "DOES NOT CONTAIN" use cases


As you projected the flow runs when using NAME
