Retrieving attachments in Outlook module

So the goal is to automate my bookkeeping. I want invoices to be analyzed through chatgpt module. The invoices are in a attachment in the e-mail in a certain map. My problem is:

I have a module outlook 365, action search e-mail → module outlook 365, action download an attachment. In this action i am required to put a Message ID and a Attachment ID. So at the Message ID i put the variable “message ID” from the previous module. But i can’t find the variable for Attachtment ID in the list. Can someone help me with this.

Hi @Ilias_Karr,

As I don’t have access to any MS 365 environment, I can’t test. But could it be that you need to get the e-mail itself as a step between the Search Message [1] and Download an Attachment [5] module?

Some API’s don’t return detailed information in search endpoints as they do in singular GET endpoints. And also asking the obvious, does the mail have an attachment?

Thanks for your reply,

Yes there are attachments in the e-mail. I tried your solution, couldn’t find it after that.
