Error on creation of onenote flow

Hi,

 

I'm trying to create a onenote flow, but the section id list gave me the error:

"Could not retrieve values. The OData query is invalid. An identifier was expected at position 21."

Hi Samuele,

 

I got the same error when trying to access Section ID in OneNote trigger/action.

I will try to report this to the product team and will update you once I got any further information.

I came across the same bug as well. Tried manually put in a id from the URL from a page, but just didn't work (invalid id error).

 

 "message": "The section id is invalid. If a custom value was entered, please try selecting from the supplied values."

Hi Samuele,

 

I got the update that the fix is currently in our deployment train. I believe that it will be fixed in not a very long time.

I'm receiving this same issue. I need to be able to automate emails to one-note but I cannot select a onenote section ID and I cannot use the GUID that I get from copying the link.

Do we have an ETA for the release of this update?

Help, for me this still doesn't work. When I want to select the section id , I get following error :

 

Can not get values. Unable to construct notebook list url.

The first problem i got is getting the sections in the Section ID : line
Getting the error: Could not retrive values. Error: One or more of the documents libraries contains more than 5,000 OneNote items (notebooks, sections, groups) and cannot be required using the API....

 

The second problem :
Instead im trying to Enter a custom value. But when entering the Section ID, i get the error:
"message": "The section id is invalid. If a custom value was entered, please try selecting from the supplied values.
Even though the SectionID is valid.

Im stuck..

I'm not sure this will help

when I created the flow manually it seemed to work with these two steps

1) when a new email arrives

2) create a page in quicknotes

 

then from there just copy the pages to the notebook you want.

Im not sure i understood,
The flow i want to create is:

When a new page is created in a OneNote section (Onenote page with bug information) , create a task in Planner with the same name as the Onenote Page, and  link the Onenote page.

The flow works on small onenote notebooks, but when i try to use the larger notebook i want to use,  but the section id list gave me the error First error,  so i tried to use the "Enter custom value" function but it gives me the second error, that the section ID is invalid..

oh we must have been creating different flows.

I got around the onenote page issue with creating the page in quicknote and copying them over.

when will the fix be there?
