Ability to create an MD5 hash

It would be very handy to be able to create an MD5 hash from a string. I am working with a few API's (eg: Mailchimp) that require an MD5 hash for various functions.

+1 as well, some http requests need to be made with a (hmac) hashed secret key too.

I want to need some Hash values,

like MD5, SHA-1, SHA-256, etc.


I hope to add Get Hash action on Data Operations connector, to use as Action,

or, add getHash function on Windows Definition Language, to use in Expression,


and 'From' parameter can get File or content.

From 2017 and hasn't gotten any attention, disappointing. 



Could really use this.


Example:  (Same use-case OP mentioned) Mailchimp subscriber ID is simply the md5 hash of the member email address.  Without it, you have to GET the whole member list and filter for the email, then pull the subscriber ID.

Come on MS, this would be so easy to implement.

I have the need for this.  I wish to compare PDF files, and use it as a check to see if files have been updated.


I did try doing a file content equality, which I thought was working... but apparently was not.

Is here anything happening? Is this maybe possible via Powerapps?


Can someone show how?

This would be really useful, I'd love to see this. The best workaround I can think of off the top of my head is to put together a quick Azure Function — but that seems like overkill for such a simple task.
