Beware of the “Content Type ID” in the action “SharePoint – Update file properties”

I encountered a rather annoying “feature” in the Microsoft Flow action “SharePoint – Update file properties”. When you have configured a document library with the option “Allow management of content types” to “Yes” (Advanced Settings), the mentioned action shows the option “Content type Id”.

When you use this option and later decide to configure Allow management of content types” to “No”, the action will give an error. The only “fixes” I found were:

  1. Configure the setting “Allow management of content types” back to “Yes”.
  2. Recreate the action and do not use the option “Content type Id” (if this is possible for your solution).

Removing the value from “Content type Id” and then set the setting “Allow management of content types” to “No” will still give an error.
