Flow for PowerApp returns 404 for users

I have a simple flow that receives a request from PowerApps that checks if a file exists on my OneDrive and returns the file content if it does.  When I run the flow (Through PowerApps) it works fine, when users try it fails with:


"status": 404,
"message": "Item not found",
"source": ""
I've shared the whole directory with the users and when they open a direct link they can view the file. Why does Flow not show the same thing?

Have you shared the folder being searched for the file by the flow with the other users who are running the Flow?  If they don't have permission to the folder then they won't be able to see the folder or file and will get a 404.

Yes, I have shared it.  Here's a sample path "/PowerApps/Worksheets/99156.json"  All users have read access to "Worksheets".  When I run "Check Permissions" in OneDrive it confirms they have read access.

Hi @pheil ,


Could you please share a screenshot of the configuration of your flow?

Sure, see below.  The "Getfilecontent" variable is a text value as seen in my previous message.

What makes this even weirder is I have another flow that creates a file in a directory and users are able to run that.  Permissions for that directory are "Edit, Contribute, Read".
