I need to download the files contained in a single public resource folder on github:
I need a simple 'Recurrence' trigger, one download per day.
I can use HTTP GET to execute the download ZIP url, however, that file is too large to automatically extract with Power Automate, and we need to move the uncompressed files into our Sharepoint.
I believe there's a method via subversion:
But I don't think PA supports subversion code / requests.
Does anyone have a solution for this flow?
Instead of thinking about getting a folder, why don't you just take the files, one after each other? The files all has a name pattern that can easily be calculated.
Create your recurrent flow that runs daily.
Have a sharepoint list with just one entry, the date last processed, starting with '01-22-2020' (MM-dd-yyyy), which is the name of the first CSV file.
1) Your flow grabs that date.
2) Then calculates the URL to use and GETs the file (you may have to catch the situation when there is no file for the date).
3) The file is then stored in your sharepoint, a document library.
4) Your flow then calculates the next date to use and stores it in the sharepoint list.
5) Your flow then loops till the date reaches todays date.
6) Your flow ends
When your flow next time runs, it will start from the stored date 🙂
Hope this gives you an idea. Kind regards, John
