Connect Instagram to SharePoint



Im trying to connect Instagram to SharePoint. So every photo I upload on Instagram is automatically added into my picture library in SharePoint. If anyone tried this , please help me. When I connect it using https or without it ,it generated an empty file but no image content was associated with it. loto

The way around was connecting Insta to OneDrive and then connecting OneDrive to SharePoint. It takes a lot of time and memory. Any simple way or using a flow directly?

Hi @MNarmeen,


Could you please share a screenshot of your flow's configuration?

Do you want to create the media file within your SharePoint library when a media is uploaded to your Instagram?


I afraid that there is no way to directly create the media file within your SharePoint library when a media is uploaded to your Instagram in Microsoft Flow currently. I suppose that you want to create the media file within SharePoint library using "Create file" action of SharePoint connector, is it true?


If you use the "Create file" action of SharePoint connector to create the media file, you should provide File name within File Name field and File content within File Content field, but the output of the "When I upload a new media" trigger of Instagram connector doesn't contain File Name and File Content property, it just provide URL property related to the Uploaded media. In addition, creating/uploading file from URL is not supported in SharePoint connector in Microsoft Flow currently.


If you would like this feature to be improved in Microsoft Flow, please submit an idea to Flow Ideas Forum:


I think the solution that you mentioned is available currently, I have made a test on my side and my flow's configuration as below:22.JPGThe flow works successfully as below:23.JPG
