Summary

During the development of PowerShell Script or Power Automate Flow with REST calls you will need a Static Names of the List. The Display name of the list is not same as static name.

Please read here for more information about the Display Name Vs Static Name.

To simplify let’s create a simple Manually Triggered flow. Using the REST API make a call to the get Fields information in JSON. Map using the Select action to get only required field properties. After that apply the Create HTML action to create nice tabular data to see the map.
