Create sharing link for a file or folder - Bad Gateway Error

Hi,

 

I have a flow that populates a Word template, creates the file in a sharepoint library and then tries to 'Create a sharing link for a file or folder'. 

 

For some reason every time to flow attempts to run it returns a 'Bad Gateway' error message. I've tried tweaking different options and recreating the flow but get the same outcome everytime.

Any ideas?

 

Thanks in advance,

Re: Create sharing link for a file or folder - Bad Gateway Error

Hi @jake-hodgson 

 

Can you go to sharepoint and check the file that is being created? 

 

Also, you might want to add a small delay (10-15 secs) before the create a link action and try this. 

 

Hope this Helps!

Hi @yashag2255,

 

Yes the file is being created with no problem.

 

Just attempted it again with a 30 second delay after the 'Create File' but it still presented the same error. 

 

Thanks Jake

Can you please post a screenshot of the flow? (expanded actions barring any sensitive information)

Hi @yashag2255,

 

Here is a screenshot of the flow;

I have recreated the flow using the OnedriveFB connector and creating a sharing link and it work fine so I'm struggling to see why this is happening.

 

FYI the step previous populates a word template then goes on to create the file.

 

Thanks Jake

Hi @jake-hodgson 

 

I am not sure if you tried this - Can you please add a small delay (20 seconds) between the Create file 2 and the Create a sharing link actions?

BTW, I just spotted that the create a file action is referencing to /Documents and the Create a ssharing link points to Documents (this is basically shared documents) I am hoping that this is not being done on purpose. Please seee the screenshot below: (are you typing the /Documents over there or choosing it from the prompt)?hah.png

Hope this Helps!

Re: Create sharing link for a file or folder - Bad Gateway Error

Hi @yashag2255 ,

 

I've created a seperate flow to test this, I've used a different library, site and added the delay and still get the 'BadGateway'. I'm thinking it may be a permissions issue? 

 

I can create a sharing link on site itself with no problem.

I'm baffled!

 

Thanks Jake
