Onedrive for business - get file content

I have created a flow that triggers when a file in a onedriver folder is modified.

 

I have two some what identical actions that tries to fetch the content from the file. 

 

In the first action the path to the file is done through the explorer of the action and the second one is taken from the triggerOutput.

last(split(triggerOutputs()?['headers']['x-ms-file-path'],'root:'))

 

getContentError1.PNG

This one works,

 

getContentError2.PNG

This one doens't work.

 

The path produced in both actions are identical, so I'm really wondering why the first one succeeds and the other one fails.

 

What might be the reason for this? I want to use the triggerOutput solution.

Hi @Anderstechlogic ,

 

If you use File browse to specify a file, it is equivalent to configuring the file identifier, although the file path is displayed.

File path is not supported here.

If you want to use the triggerOutput solution, I suggest you use Get file content using path action.

Re: Onedrive for business - get file content

Please see the OneDrive for Business connector documentation for reference. What is likely happening, is that you are either locking out the file with the first Get file content action, and/or exceeding the API call limit. With that in mind, you may want to rethink the design of you Flow, and possibly instead storing the file in a SharePoint Document Library.

If you could provide an expanded screenshot of your Flow and steps, your Flow run history, and of any detailed error messages you're receiving we could likely better assist you. Also, for the best results, you may want to review How to write a good forum post.

Re: Onedrive for business - get file content

The error happens even if i split it in to 2 seperate flows. And this is just something I found while fiddling around. Not an actual flow, and there's not anything else in the flow. I'll provide the error message here :
