Change file path OneDrive or SharePoint

I am hoping some can help me figure out a problem.  

 

Assuming I have two paths:

Root>Read>User1, User2, User3 etc.

and

Root>Write>User1, User2, User3, etc.

 

When a new file is created in Root>write or one of its subfolders, how do I move or change the path from write>user1 to read>user1?

 

Thanks,

Gary

Hi @Gary111 

Do you want to move file to Read folder or one of its subfolders when a new file is created in Write folder or one of its subfolders?

If yes, I set up a flow you can refer to with the following screenshots.

vLilyWmsft_0-1631685069081.pngvLilyWmsft_1-1631685079909.png

Flow in details:

vLilyWmsft_2-1631685137382.png

vLilyWmsft_3-1631685161113.png

Expression:last(split(outputs('Compose'),'root:'))

vLilyWmsft_4-1631685191177.png

Expression:split(outputs('Compose_2'),'/')

vLilyWmsft_5-1631685234676.png

Expression:length(outputs('Compose_3'))

vLilyWmsft_6-1631685268865.png

If the length is equal to 3, it means that a new file is created in the Write folder.

If the length is not equal to 3, it means that a new file is created in the Write's subfolder.

Expression:replace(outputs('Compose_2'),'Write','Read')

Expression:replace(outputs('Compose_2'),'Write','Read')

vLilyWmsft_8-1631685460860.png

Then save and test.

When I upload a file in Write Folder, after flow runs, the file will be moved to Read folder.

Lily,

 

Thank you for working on this.  I am getting an error 


Unable to process template language expressions for action 'Condition' at line '1' and column '13699': 'The template language function 'length' expects its parameter to be an array or a string. The provided value is of type 'Integer'.

I am guessing it is because I have a 'Test' folder between Root and Write

Thank you,

Hi @Gary111 

This error indicates that there is a problem with your expression. Is your expression completely copied from what I provided? Please check your expression. 

If your Write and Read folder is stored in Test Folder, you just need to change 3 to 4 according to the solution I provided.
