Create a document set (with http request)



I want to create a document set (created my own content type with some columns) in a document library. Since it is (currently) not possible to create it via an action directly in flow (except with plumsail $$$) i want to use the http-request-action. I use the instructions from Karine Bosch:


How do I need to configure it to also fill my columns, that I created on my own document-set-content-type?

From what I understand in your post, you want to populate metadata on a newly created Document Set.  You can do this is the same Flow by passing the ID of the Document Set you created in a Get File (properties only) action against the library where the set is stored.  Once you get the file, you can add an Update file properties action against that Document Set, and update it the same way you would a document.  


Take care!

Thank you @AKRogers

that is one way you can do it. I thought that maybe it would be possible directly inside the http-request which I use to create the doc set...?

Sure thing, you could potentially set up the metadata for the new Document set using the Body of the POST HTTP call.  I haven't specifically done it when using the Slug header to suggest the new URI of a Document Set, so I'd be interested to see how that works out.  


Here's a related post with a very similar solution that you can map to your needs.  There is a great screenshot in there of the Body with parameters and __metadata being used:
