How do I add a file location for power automate to access its content from?


I am currently working on a project in AI Builder (Object Detection) I wanted my flow to be like the following:

1 - Accesses File Location (Local File)
2 - Imports all the photos from within the folder
3 - performs object detection on the images one by one 
4 - records the confidence score on Microsoft Excel 

Stuck with (1) & (2). Cant seem to find an option to access file location and upload more than one image. Any help? 


Hi @Hashibul ,


Trigger actions available to process local files are the following ones:



If you build a flow that detects new files on a folder (Trigger "When a file is created") and that you move or copy all your images in this folder, the flow should trigger for all files.


Hope that helps,

I have tried it and it did not work. I assume this is because Power Automate is not actually uploading the images from the file location, just using it as a trigger to start the process, however, that is not what I aim to do. I wanted the flow to access my file location, upload all the photos within that and run the checks on the images.
