Get folder metadata Action in SharePoint Connector

Japanese version.

This action retrieves additional information about a folder on SharePoint, such as the folder name and who updated it.

It requires the ID of the folder as a parameter, but is used infrequently because if the ID of the folder is known, other metadata is often obtained as well.

How to use

Select the "SharePoint" connector when adding steps to the flow.

Select "Get folder metadata" from the "Actions" menu.

Set parameters.


Site Address

Specify the SharePoint group where the folder whose metadata is to be retrieved is stored.

File Identifier

Specify the ID of the folder stored in SharePoint.

Select a folder with the directory icon on the right.

When selected, it looks like a folder path, but it is only a display and the substance is an ID.

If you delete the specified folder and then create a folder with the same name, it will be treated as a different folder.
In such a case, an error will occur that the folder does not exist, so it must be re-specified in the flow.
