SharePoint On-Prem - File Identifier

I need access to the File Identifier on-prem in order to use the 'Get file metadata' action. What is the proper way to do this? Using ID leads to a 404.

Hi @trevorseward,


When using the action “Get file metadata”, in the File Identifier field, please try to select the dynamic content “Identifier” instead of “Id”.

I have made the following test and it works fine.

Please take this for a reference and try again with it on your side.


Best regards,

This is for an on-prem farm. "Identifier" isn't available.

I have the same problem, On-premises doesn't allow me to get the File Identifier, but only the ID for several actions including: Get files (properties only), Get file, When a file is created (properties only), etc... why is it limited, how can we get this, or how can we locate an exact file whithin our Flows?
