Copy SharePoint List attachments to a SharePoint Document Library

I have quite a large SharePoint list where each list item has an attachment. Is it possible to create a Flow that will copy all of these list item attachments over to a SharePoint Document library? I would also need a link back to the original list item from each attachment. Is this possible? If not, I would at least need some reference to the original list item (e.g. Created By, Created Date, ID, etc).

Once this has been set up I will also need to set up a Flow which automatically copies list item attachments into a document library but I should be able to set this up using the above logic and using the "When an item is created" trigger.

Any help would be much appreciated!

Do you have access to run SharePoint Online Management Shell?  If so, I have a script that I developed on premise to do this same thing. It could be modified for use in SPO by leveraging CSOM.  If interested, let me know and I can send you the script.


I have not tried this in Flow, though I think it might be possible by invoking an HTTP action to sharepoint…??
