Reference Checked Out To Flow SharePoint Document Library

Hi,

I am new to Flow and would like to reference the 'Checked Out To' column of the SharePoint document library. No problem with all other columns but just not able to reference checked out to column. I have tried multiple options:

 

items('Apply_to_each')?['CheckoutUser']?['DisplayName']

items('Apply_to_each')?['CheckoutUser']?['User.Name']

items('Apply_to_each')?['CheckoutUser']?['OWSUSER']

items('Apply_to_each')?['CheckoutUser']?['USER']

items('Apply_to_each')?['CheckedOutTo']?['DisplayName']

items('Apply_to_each')?['CheckedOutTo']?['User.Name']

items('Apply_to_each')?['Checked_x0020_Out_x0020_To']?['User.Name']

items('Apply_to_each')?['Checked_x0020_Out_x0020_To']?['DisplayName']

 

Any help would be appreciated.

Re: Reference Checked Out To Flow SharePoint Document Library

Hi @MiteshSudan 

 

I believe that the checked out to as an attribute is not returned on the Get files (Properties) or get file properties actions. When you run the flow with these actions, ou can check the run history and expand these actions to see what all attributes have been returned and you can in turn only use those attributes. (Makes sense?)

 

Hope this Helps!

Hi @MiteshSudan 

 

This is not returned as part of the response object

might be a good item to add to user voice

 

You would have to fire an extra rest api call using http request to SharePoint action to get it

/_api/Web/GetFileByServerRelativeUrl('fileURL')/CheckedOutByUser/LoginName

 

There is a IsCheckedOut property which you check first to see if file is checked out, if Yes then call rest api
