Create Sharepoint list item - Dynamic URL

Hello,

 

I am trying to build a flow currently to work alongside my Powerapp, currently I have a top level site with about 350 subsites representing my customers different geographical sites, the purpose of the app is for any of the site managers to raise a repair case, each site manager has their own of these subsites and part of this case raising we would like an item to be created in a sharepoint list. Currently the App writes back a record to an SQL database to raise the case with HQ. But so that they can view what cases have been raised and HQ can communicate information back to the manager we need it to also create an item in a sharepoint list. The problem we have is that although the list name is static across all sites the URL obviously changes, this works fine for creating a file in a document library as we have the app writing photos of the repair work back to a library at each subsite, but if I try to use dynamic content in the URL I get the following tempsnip.png

 

Does anyone know a way around this?

 

Thanks


Dan

Re: Create Sharepoint list item - Dynamic URL

Hi @rio688,

 

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

 

I afraid that the dynamic URL of a sharepoint list is not supported in the "Create item" action of sharepoint connector, and there is no way to achieve your needs in Microsoft Flow currently.

 

If you would like this feature to be added in Microsoft Flow, please submit an idea to Flow Ideas Forum so it might be considered for future releases:

Re: Create Sharepoint list item - Dynamic URL

By default, i.e. using the MSFT SharePoint connector you cannot use dynamic URL but that doesn't mean that you cannot accomplish that using Flow's...

 

To implement that need you need to create a custom Web API, can be an Azure Web API and implement that logic. And use for example the HTTP Action to call that Web API.
