URL value error - A URL field contains invalid data

Hello wonderful community of helpful people,


Hoping you can help with an intermittent issue i'm having regarding the URL.

Please see flow below

Error message - "Invalid URL value.

A URL field contains invalid data. Please check the value and try again.
clientRequestId: 449d2f9c-4e3d-4550-900f-018d295f7437
serviceRequestId: 449d2f9c-4e3d-4550-900f-018d295f7437" 


This error message comes up in other flows I have as well but only for certain folders - I wonder if its because the URL is too long? Is there a way of by-passing this? - this is an example of a link that breaks it (I added the X's for anonymity) 


For context this is what the flow is supposed to do - 'For a selected file' - change the column value - 'update file properties'

I may have a fix to this but works with some projects and not with other - but thought it worth posting in case it helps you @stacyjpelletier .

For the URL field that requires filling I use an ETag instead see photo below. You first need to use 'Get File Properties' and then select the ETag from that. I hope this helps you 🙂
