Create and edit List view

Hello,

 

is there any possibility to create a new list view by a flow? What I want to do is the following:

 

I have a list where all employees of our department are stored. In a second list we manage our tasks. Each employee has his own view, this view is formatted by JSON. Now I want to create a new list view when I add a new employee. 

Is there any solution for this?

Thank you!

Hi @chhe 

There's no out-of-the box action to do this but I believe it can be done either using the Sharepoint HTTP action (Sharepoint REST API) or setting up a Custom connector (again, it's the Sharepoint REST API).

I have personally not done this but it looks like someone has here. http://blog.techperspect.com/2015/07/create-list-view-using-sharepoint-rest.html

 

Cheers,

I have found a guide to create a list view:

 

http://www.ludovicperrichon.com/sharepoint-rest-api-call-with-powerautomate/#createlistview

 

But I have a problem:

 

The list view I want to create has a JSON formatted view. The JSON code is about 500 rows long. I have put the following text in die HTTP request:

 

{
    "__metadata": {
        "type": "SP.View"
    },
    "ViewType": "HTML",
    "Title": "testAngelegt",
    "DefaultView": false,
    "PersonalView": false,
    "CustomFormatter":  "JSON_CODE"
}

 

But I run into a timeout. If I put a short JSON Code everything works fine. I can't believe that it's not possible to send a longer JSON Code via HTTP request. Is there any solution for this?
