You should use Graph API to get folder id.

Hi @Rowley101 ,

Are you trying to read Folders other than Inbox, Sent Items, Calendar and Contacts ?

Is it a Custom Created Folder ?

@Rowley101 Why don’t you store that folder name in config file or Orchestrator assets (more recommended) so that every time they change the folder name you can simply change in the Orchestrator assets

yes it is a custom folder with a custom name. something like

May be you can get the list of folder names from outlook and then validate as you want
