Getting multi value managed metadata

Hi,  

Im using an On Premise Data Gateway to move files from an On Premise SharePoint to an Online SharePoint for a client.

 

my flow successfuly picks up changes to the On Premise library and addes the files to the online library.

However when using Get File Properties action within the flow,  any field that is of type Managed Metadata, and has the mutli value option selected has the value of 'null' regardless of what was actually in the column.

i do not get this issue if the mutli value option is not selected.

 

in the image below Application, and Document_x0020_Category are both multi select managed metadata columns with data, but nothing is returned, 

Date_x0020_Produced is a single valued managed metadata column and this does return data.

Is this a bug/limitation or am i missing somthing?

 

Regards

Gary

Hi @garywalker ,

Could you please share a full screenshot of your flow's configuration?

I have made a test on my side.

when I used the 'Get File Properties action, I can get the column value.

It doesn't has the issue your have mentioned.

Re: Getting multi value managed metadata

The Values that i have entered have to be correct, as shown in the screen shots we can see other values coming back,  i can populate all values that are not Multi-Value Metadata fields,  and i can get the file content its self form a later step using the same values.  

I have tried this on my dev tenant, the company tenant and the clients tenant. I get the same result on all.

I have also tried using the 'Sent Http request to sharepoint' step,  this return a collection object in stead of null,  but i can not see how to access the collection.

 

Thanks for your help so far, but i have now started to create a custom dot net solution instead.

Re: Getting multi value managed metadata

I'm getting the same thing.  Connecting to an on-prem list with a multi-value managed metadata column.  Get Items shows null values for every list item, but using a SharePoint HTTP call returns the correct values.
