Dynamically create Team Channel and Planner

Hi,

I have the following Flow;

So when a List item is selected I get all the item details, then create a Channel in an existing Team using those details, and then try to create a Planner in the newly created Channel, using the Channels ID. The first 3 steps work but the HTTP request fails. I used the HTTP request as I understand currently there is not an Action that can create a Planner. When I test the above I get an 'Invalid ID' Error. I checked the ID that is created during the Flow;

So the ID is '19:dc7291963c144a2da4e78cca707c5b6e@thread.skype'. As a test I tried creating another Flow that simply sends an HTTP request to the Channel with various different ID formats ;

  • 19:dc7291963c144a2da4e78cca707c5b6e@thread.skype
  • dc729196-3c14-4a2d-a4e7-8cca707c5b6e
  • etc

None of them worked. Would anyone have an idea?

Thanks

Hi @Marty3012 

It seems that the id you're using is the Team ID, and you need the Group ID. If you always create the channel and plan in the same team, you could add it manually, and if not, use Office 365 Group actions to get them and filter according to its name.

Hope it helps!

Hi. The idea behind the Flow is that each time it is run a new Channel will be created within the same Team, along with a new Planner within each Channel created. I tried the following;

In this example I am able to get the ID for the Team but not the ID for the Channel. The Flow succeeded but no Planner was created as it requires a Channel to hold it.

 

Would you know how to use Office 365 Groups to get the actual Channel ID ?

 

Thanks
