Hi Flow Experts,

Error - The API 'sharepointonline' returned an invalid response for workflow operation 'When_an_item_is_created' of type 'OpenApiConnection'. Error details: 'The API operation 'GetOnNewItems' is missing required property 'body/value/0/Title'.'

Good thought @shaikha92. The setting below on the title field should help mitigate the problem during data entry. From current experience the value does not need to be unique.

yes, although its a required by default I've seen where some users change in the settings to hide it and make it optional field then causes problems later such as in migration to SPO. It's a good practice to always use it. For me I'm using it for storing custom request reference ID.

Still could not get the point, since I am an new user to power platform.

Please could u elaborate and show me.

here's how to find your title field: 

 

1. Go to your SharePoint list

2. Click the gear icon and select List Settings

3. go to columns and select any column to edit

4. check the url in the browser it should be like this:

repeat on all columns until you identify the title field, then in make sure all items in the list has value in their Title column. Hope its clear now.

The solution is, make sure the title column row for that get Items is not not empty.

Thanks for this, this was the real issue to solve the error above. For some reason a blank line was in sharepoint causing the malfunction of the flow.
