Getting file identifier (SharePoint) using on-premise gateway

Hi,

 

I am creating a flow connected (using an on-premise gateway) to take action on files when they are created in a SharePoint folder.

I am having difficulties getting the file contents of the files that are created within SharePoint. For some reason, there is no option to get the "File Identifier" in the dynamic content from the file that is created. Only the file ID is listed as an option.

Am I unable to get the "File Identifier" of the created file due to the use of an on-premise gateway to access the library? Is there any other way to get the file identifier of the created file without using the dynamic content?

 

Thanks,

If you add a compose action is the file identifier available as dynamic content for that action?  Also the actual name of the dynamic content when searching for it is 'Identifier' not 'File Identifier'.  That may also be why you aren't seeing it.

Hi,

 

There is no dynamic content called "identifier" available when adding Compose action or within Get File Contents.
