Get File Info Details

UiPath.Box.Activities.File.GetFileInfoDetails

The Get File Info Details activity uses the Box Get file information API to retrieve all file information from a specified file (File Id).

After retrieving the information, the activity outputs a BoxFile object (Box File) that includes all of its properties.

How it works

The following steps and message sequence diagram is an example of how the activity works from design time (i.e., the activity dependencies and input/output properties) to run time.

  1. Complete the Setup steps.
  2. Add the Box Scope activity to your project.
  3. Add an activity or run an external process that outputs a File.Id value (e.g., Upload File, Search for Content, etc.).
  4. Add the Get File Info Details activity inside the Box Scope activity.
  5. Enter a value for the Input property.
  6. Create and enter a BoxFile variable for the Output property.
    • Your input property values are sent in the Get file information API operation request.
    • The operation returns the BoxFile value to your output property variable.

Input
  • File ID - The ID of the file that you want to retrieve information from. This field supports only Strings or String variables. To get the File ID value, add an activity or run an external process that outputs a File.Id object (e.g., Upload File, Search for Content, etc.).
Misc
