Destination Folder Is uriEncoded, Request Ignores It, Does What It Wants?

Hi,

I'm trying to copy a newly created file from one Sharepoint library to another. I'm a site owner on both sites. I have an expression that finds the folder name on the new site and then URI-Encodes it. When I run it, it fails.

Here is the full expression:

uriComponent(concat('Patient Records and Data',replace(variables('folderPath'),'Shared Documents/CompanyName','')))

But here is the perplexing part:

The "Destination Folder" Input for the failed request reads perfectly encoded (ie. folder%20name%20good )

But the error message is "Failed to verify the existence of destination location https://site.sharepoint.com/folder name good"

Other than the spaces the names are right, I can copy and paste the destination link into a new tab and it works.

 

Anyone ever have this problem before?

Hi @wesborland1234,

 

Have you tried not to convert the folder path into URI code? For example as below:

Thank you, But it does not work when you don't convert it either. Just gives the same error. And if you copy and paste the failed URL into a browser it brings you right to the folder so I know it's there, and I have permissions to it.

Hi @wesborland1234,

 

I tried again and I find that if there has an addition "/" at the beginning of the folder path, it won't work.

But if I remove it, it could work.

For example "/Shared Documents/NewChannel" conldn't work, but "Shared Documents/NewChannel" could work:

That doesn't work for me. Thanks for trying to help though. Here is the full flow I am doing (maybe the problem is in a step leading up to it?):
