Unable to create shareable link to SharePoint List Folder

While working on a Flow, I had to create a shareable link to a list item. I understand it's not supported yet, but I found a workaround. Since it does support files and folders, in my flow, I created a folder in a list, created a shareable link to that folder (anonymous, edit) and created an item in that folder. Everything in the folder inherits from its parent. It worked!


On Feb. 11 in the message center, there was news about Microsoft removing the Outlook share link from the UI for shareable links. Since then it no longer works.I get the following error: 


Cannot request driveItem for an item that is not in a document library


Any ideas?
