Building a Power BI Report around Sharepoint Files

There are 5 sharepoint folders that have files in them. I need to build a report that details a custom field that is viewable online:

luvagoldenk9_0-1656009592992.png

I am connecting through the Sharepoint Online List connector. I can see the file name through expanding Files.Folder Name. Not able to see the other file-related fields like created by, modified by, modified date, or current status field for the individual files. 

 

Would anyone have any suggestions as to how to access the other fields (created by, modified by, modified date, current status) is information for all files in the 5 folders?

 

Thank you!

Thank you for the quick response. That solution is very helpful for a Power App but it did not cross over well to Power BI.

 

I was actually able to resolve and find the Share Point custom fields. I had to use the expansion fields for Folder.Files, Folder.Files.ListItemAllFields, and FieldValuesAsText.
