Create file in OneDrive dynamic folder

This should be a simple process.  We are generating documents in a SharePoint library and walking through a multistep approval process - All Good.  What I need is for the document, when marked as Approved, to be converted to PDF and copied to OneDrive for Business in the same folder hierarchy.

For example - library at https://sharepointsite.com/sites/sitename/Shared%20Documents/Project A/Report/ has a report that, when approved should be copied to https://ondrivefolderstructure/Project A/Report/.

 

Now the triggering, copying and converting I can do. 

 

How do I get the dynamic folder subpath - /Project A/Report/ from the SharePoint file and replicate it into OneDrive?  There are many projects and many subfolders but the struture should be replicated in two locations.  Where is the string manipulation subset of Flow?

 

Thoughts?

Hi @Anonymous,

 

I have made a test on my side and would offer you the method refer to the path.

 

Please refer to screenshot below to create the flow:

The expression in the Compose 2 as below:

first(skip(split(outputs('Compose'),first(split(outputs('Compose'),'/'))),1))

  

Note:

1.Choose the "Folder Path" dynamic content of the trigger in the Compose field.

2.The expression in the Compose 2 as below:

 

first(skip(split(outputs('Compose'),first(split(outputs('Compose'),'/'))),1))

  

When a file is created in the link https://sharepointsite.com/sites/sitename/Shared%20Documents/Project A/Report/, the flow would run successfully as below:

Please let me know if your problem could be solved.

 

Best regards,

Alice
