Check out SharePoint file to user who uploaded the file

When a file is added to a document library in SharePoint, I'd like to run a flow that checks out the file to the person who uploaded the file.

 

The "Check out file" SharePoint action works, but it checks out the file to the person who created the flow (me). Is there a way to check out the file to the person who uploaded the document?

Hi @Siddz ,

 

Do you want to check out file for the user who upload the file? If so, I'm afraid that is not available ,cause there is no such an out-of-box action. I also checked the doc of SharePoint Rest API , and did not find a way to meet your requirement.

 

But you can create a new idea through the below URL, then ask  your colleagues to raise up the votes.  

 

Power Automate Ideas - Power Platform Community (microsoft.com)

 

The  product team has direct visibility of these ideas and they will implement it on the basis of the highest number of votes received. 

 

Best Regards,

Thanks, @v-bofeng-msft.

 

Yeah, I was hoping to check out the file to the user who uploaded the file (instead of the flow's creator). Thanks for the response. I'll add the suggestion to Power Automate Ideas.
