Retrieves additional information (metadata) such as file names of files already in Google Drive by specifying file IDs.
This is used when other metadata information is needed while the file ID is being obtained by other actions.
How to use
Select the "Google Drive" connector when adding steps to the flow.
Select "Get file metadata using path" from the "Actions" menu.
The "File Path" can be selected by keystroke or by using the picker on the directory icon.
Unlike "Get file metadata using id", the content is also a file path.
It works even if you delete the specified file and then create a file with the same name.
Typical items used in subsequent steps are as follows.
Additional information about the target file can be obtained.
|Id||Text||Identifier of the file/folder.|
|Name||Text||File and folder names.|
It is difficult to use as is, so string manipulation is often required.
|MediaType||Text||MINE type of file.|
|LastModifiedBy||Text||User name of the last updater.|
|Size||Number||The number of bytes in the file.|
