Creating a new folder in a newly created Team/SharePoint document library fails

Hi,

I got a question concerning Microsoft Flow/PowerAutomate and the creation of folders within the document library of a newly generated team in Microsoft Teams.

 

A. THE CONTEXT

1. Within Microsoft flow I create a new team with the Microsoft Graph "Clone a team"-command based on my team-template with the exemplary id: "f17cff1c-4da7....". For example:

 

POST

https://graph.microsoft.com/v1.0/teams/f17cff1c-4da7-4848-9955-b91e6662ed79/clone

{

  "displayName": "Example",

  "description": "Exampl-Descriptuon",

  "mailNickname": "TestMailNickname",

  "partsToClone": "apps,tabs,settings,channels,members",

  "visibility": "public"

}

- and it just works fine. The new team based on the template is created.

 

2. Then I want to create a folder in the new SharePoint document library of the newly created team.

- Therefor I have to get a few ids, for example the “drive id”, based on the newly created groups id. For example

 

GET

https://graph.microsoft.com/v1.0/groups/d7edce0f-622b-45134-95af-98a555cebb67/drive/root:/General

 

 

B. THE PROBLEM

1. With the above mentioned “GET Drive” command I get the following error.

{

  "error": {

    "code": "itemNotFound",

    "message": "The resource could not be found.",

    "innerError": {

      "request-id": "90d21f45-7db6-454a-a460-e9c7761cd390",

      "date": "2020-01-09T16:02:24"

    }  }  }

 

2. But if I:

a.) create a delay in Microsoft Flow, before the above mentioned “GET Drive” command starts

b.) Open the newly created Microsoft team manually by browsing to it

c.) Open the "Files" Tab in the General Channel of the newly created team.

d.) Get an "Error" that the "Files aren't accessible at the moment”. (See screenshot)

e.) Open the "Files" Tab once again,

f.) I can see the available SharePoint root folder “General”. (see screenshot)

3. If I did the above mentioned manually actions within time before the "GET Drive" Command in Flow starts, I get a successful 200 response from the "GET Drive" Command with a body like

 

{

  "@odata.context": "https://graph.microsoft.com/v1.0/$metadata#groups('e81b7b1f-2601-43d5-8e1c-a1bc7c3e6666')/drive/root...",

  "createdDateTime": "2020-01-07T11:11:28Z",

  "eTag": "\"{BC4CB7A8-3B3D-469A-8ZBE-9047F2EF49AE},1\"",

  "id": "01XQSC5ZVIW5GLYPJ3PJBI4PUXM7ZO6SNO",

  "lastModifiedDateTime": "2020-01-07T11:11:28Z",

  "name": "General",

  ...

  ...

 

that contains the ids I need for creating folders in it.

 

4. Then I use the "Create a new folder in a drive" command. For example:

 

https://graph.microsoft.com/v1.0/drives/b!HkE4eVN_l0KBXm4BKBWvtIKfr8Bn82356Dk6xR-JBBvim_gu079SwvTpVX...

 

{

  "name": "New Folder",

  "folder": {} }

 

- And it just works fine getting a 201 response.

 

D. THE CONCLUSION

1. Somehow it seems, that the drive is only created/accessible after I opened the document library of the newly created team within Microsoft Teams one time manually.

 

E. THE QUESTIONS

1. Is there a possibility to simulate my manual opening of the newly created document library?

2. Or is there another known way to create a folder within this document library of the newly created team?

 

Thanks in advance.

Hi @COlsch ,

 

I don't think it is possible to simulate manual open of the new created document library.

 

Best regards,

Alice
