Copy files from SharePoint document library to OneDrive for Business using Flows

Hi there,

 

I was trying to build a flow to copy the files from SharePoint document library to OneDrive for Business (Cloud). I created a trigger called 'When a file is created or modified (properties only)' , an action to fetch metadata properties 'Get file metadata'  for SharePoint and 'Copy file' for OnDrive for Business. 

 

The flow get through until the SharePoint side but with the OnDrive i get an error saying 'The file id is not valid'.

 

{
  "status"400,
  "message""The file id is not valid.",
  "source""api.connectorp.svc.ms"
}

Hi @Anonymous,

 

Do you want to create the a to OneDrive for Business when the file is created in SharePoint library?

Instead of using OneDrive for Business Copy file action, please use Create file action.

I have made the following flow for testing and it works great.

Hi Mabel,

 

I tried your workaround, but now i get a different error "Unauthorized".

 

However, just to give you a bit of background, I am actually trying to copy the files across to a different user's OneDrive for Business account NOT my personal account.

 

Is this achievable?

Thanks for posting this solution.  Exactly what we need it.  Why not turn it into a template?

Thanks
