Sharepoint Document Library- Folder Contents with file properties



I am in need of some help. I have a Sharepoint Document Library that has documents in it from an approval process. Those files, as a result of the approval flow, have file "properties (Sharepoint Column Data like "Approved By" and "Submittal ID"). I have setup a Dataflow to pull the data from the SP Library into an Entity in my CDS database however Power Query does not allow for any of the file properties to be carried along with this connection. 


Is there a way to bring this File Properties data over into CDS from my SP Library files?

Hi @Mbombace,

Unfortunately up to now I believe importing file content type is unsupported with Common Data Service Dataflows.  As a workaround, you can import the file path (URL) pointing to SharePoint into CDS and in your app reference that URL.


You can submit that idea though if it doesn't already exists at:

Hope this helps....
