Automating retrieval of file from an external Sharepoint site

Hi,

 

I've been shared a file from an Sharepoint site that sits outside of my organisation. I'm trying to use a flow to automate the process of copying that file to an FTP server on a daily basis, but I cant find a way to do this. Does anyone know if this is possible, please?

 

Thanks!

 

Matt

Hi @Anonymous ,

 

If you would copy a file from your sharepoint to FTP, you could refer to screenshot below to create the flow:

Hi,

 

Just coming back to advise that the response marked as the solution did not actually work for me. There seem to be some actions that are not possible for files that are shared from a different organisation's Sharepoint site - these files appear to be 'invisible' when accessed via Flow etc - they cannot be retrieved as part of a flow. However, I haven't managed to find any documentation relating to this.

 

Regards,

 

Matt
