Scan .pbix attachment

Hello,

I have a requirement to scan .pbix files attached to emails looking for specific words and raising an error in a modal dialog if the words are detected in the .pbix file.

We looked into unzipping the .pbix file, but was wondering if there is a more optimal solution that is recommended.

Greatly appreciate your time and insights on this.

I don’t have a solution, but I know you can unzip files with Flow. Maybe flow can also search for text - I don’t know.

Thank you Matt

To clarify you are sating that unzipping the files and searching them is the only recommended approach?

No, I am not saying that.  I don't know what approaches can be used.  You have indicated that unzipping works. I am just drawing your attention to the fact that Flow can do the unzipping automatically, so maybe you can investigate if it can also search the unzipped file for you and do what you want.  I don't know if it can or can't, I'm just putting the idea out there.
