I am starting to create a robust approval flow for files in my organization. During this process file will need to approved, copied to other folders, and deleted. Unfortunately, the flow is flailing at the "Copy file" function. I have attached screen shots of how I'm building it below.
In the copy file function, I have using "ID" from the "for a selected file" list. What is also frustrating is that the runs when I set the trigger to automated "When a file is created in a folder" (the flow is built exactly the same, except for the triggers). For QA reasons, I want the flow to be manually triggered though. Thank you for the assistance!
Solved! Go to Solution.
After For a selected file you need to run get file properties then use the identifier from that action instead of the ID from For a selected file. This should resolve the issue.
Thank you for the response. Unfortunately, that did not work either. This time the error came back as "null". I used the "Get file properties" function, and selected the file that caused the trigger.
Thank you. "Get file metadata" was missing, this caused the flow to stop running. I was able to get it to run after I added it in. I was also able to add "Delete file" with the Identifier from the "Get file properties" step after "Copy File". The flow was able to run.
