Upload File
Use the Upload File action to upload a specific file in the file, stream, or string formats to the OData service.
Complete the following steps to use the Upload File action in your workflow:
1. Drag the Upload File action under OData to the canvas, place the pointer on the action, and then click or double-click the action. The Upload File window opens.
2. Edit the Label, if needed. By default, the label name is the same as the action name.
3. To add an OData connector type, refer to Supported OData Connector Types.
If you previously added a connector type, select the appropriate Connector Type, and under Connector Name, select the connector.
4. Click TEST to validate the connector.
5. Click MAP CONNECTOR to execute the action using a connector that is different from the one that you are using to populate the input fields. In the Runtime Connector field, provide a valid OData connector name. For more information about MAP CONNECTOR, see Using Map Connector.

This list specifies all entities or navigation properties that support media entities. Entities that support media have the HasStream property set to true. The navigation property on an entity is represented as EntityTypeName/NavigationPropertyName.
