OneNote - create section, then create page in that section

I can create a section - no problem. But what if I want to create a page within this new section? I believe this behaviour to be a bug.


The "Create Page" asks me for the Section ID. If I return any of the following variable names:

  • Create section in notebook object id
  • Created by name
  • or if I manually generate the name of the section that I want it to go in, using whatever string I used to create the section

it all fails.


What am I actually supposed to be passing to this variable? The error "Including a Section Id" is less than helpful, because you've already told me that I should be entering one. But I don't know what it looks like, or where I should be getting one from.


Can someone help?

Hi @daniel_d,


Thanks for your feedback, the issue is confirmed on my side, the result that the “Create section in a notebook” action returned doesn’t contain Section Id property, so we couldn’t get Section Id dynamic content from outputs of “Create section in a notebook” action within “Create page in a section” action.


I would post this issue to my team, if the issue is solved, I would reply to you here.


Best regards,

HI Kris,

Any update for this bug or estimated date to fix it?

I've run into the same need. My users would like to have a list submission in SharePoint spin up a OneNote section and create an initial page.
