Comments migration from one SharePoint list to another (using flow)

Hi all,


I've seen in previous topics (Get Microsoft Lists Comments using Flow) it was possible to collect comments sending an HTTP request (Thank you @Expiscornovus ). However, I was wondering if after getting those comments it was possible to migrate them to another SharePoint list?


I'm migrating one SharePoint list from one SharePoint to another, and eveything has been migrated but comments. I really need them but I don't see any "comments" field or anything similar in the "create item" operation.


Does someone know how to do this and support me?


Thank you!

I know this is an older post, but I would also like to know if there is a way to use this. Currently, we are using a SP List to track active requests. We would love to make a Power Automate to move things from our active request SP List to a SP List I just created for completed requests, and it works where all the data comes over, except comments. Comments are important for us to flow over with the rest of the list item. Is there any way to do this?

Can see from other posts that Microsoft has prohibited migration of comments by design. Can't say I understand that but it's SUPER frustrating when discover it after having had to migrate the site due to unexplained techological bugs!!

Here's a way for you to retrieve the comments (if you - as we - are using the comments as part of the request process):
