Copy files from a SharePoint folder to a AzureBlob folder issue. Files aren't created in Sharepoint

Hi,

 

Im currently trying to set up a flow that moves files to a blob storage folder when they are added into the Sharepoint folder by users.

 

I have used the template Copy files from a SharePoint folder to a AzureBlob folder issue and got to test and realised that this doesnt work if you move files into Sharepoint. Its only if you create the file in Sharepoint.

This isnt what I want. The user Gets there files and Adds them to the Sharepoint folder. Flow then copys the file to the blob table.

 

Is there anything in Flow that can give me what I want on this one?

 

Thanks in advance

Hi @debbieedwards,

 

I have made a test on my side and the issue is confirmed on my side.

 

The trigger "When a file is created" of sharepoint connector would onlt be triggered when a file is created in a folder, if you move a file from another folder to the new address, the flow wouldn't triggered.

 

I afraid that there is no any way to trigger the flow to moves files to a blob storage folder when users move file into the Sharepoint folder in microsoft flow currently.

 

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

Best regards,

Alice
