Error getting pages from Site Pages library to other library based on metadata

Hi everyone,


We're pretty new to Power Automate, but we're trying to move newspages/pages in the SitePages library to another 'archive' library based upon a column 'Archiveren' (choice field yes/no/later). So if you change this column in the site pages library, it should automatically start a flow in which the page or pages are moved to a library called 'testpages'


If yes, then the page should be moved to the archive library.


What we did is shown in the screenshots attached:

1.Choose 'when a file is created or modified in a folder' - we gave the ID of the site pages library in the library 'name field'

2. Get files (properties only) 

3. Condition: if 'Archiveren' = 'ja' (yes)

4. Get file metadata >Copy file (in the new library - testpages) > Delete file (in the sitepages library)


Anyone care to help us out? Big thanks in advance!

Hi @AB_,


I had a quick look at your current setup. I see the Copy file is using the DisplayName of the file.


However, as far as I am aware the 'Het pad naar het doelbestand' field expects a destionation folder. So, in your setup Testpages should be sufficient as a value.


Additionally, you could also check with Get changes for an item or a file (properties only) action if the Archiveren? field value has change since the last major version.


Below is an example of all those things.

I also added the same custom fields as in the source library to my target library.





You also might want to use a trigger condition expression if Archiveren? is equal to yes. This will prevent the flow from triggering a lot 😀
