Filesystem Gateway - Create Folder

Hi, I want to create a Folder on a local Filesystem on a Windows Server 2016 using a On Premises Data Gateway. I can't find an Option to create a Folder. Is there a Way to create a Folder?

 

Thanks!

Luca

Statement of Microsoft:

 

Doing some review on the concerns raised so, it has been confirmed by the development team that the experience you are having with creating a new folder, is a known issue. The solution provided by my colleague was provided by the development team as a short-term fix for the experience you have pending when this will be resolved.

 

Currently, the team is actively working on this issue, however, they have not provided a timeline as to when this issue will be resolved hence our inability to provide you with the information regarding a possible fix timeline.

 

The solution they have provided is as follows :

Kindly ask your AD Admin to set this AD user language to English and re-sync to AAD and make sure the data gateway’s exception does not show with the local language instead of English. Please note that changing the local PC language will not resolve this issue.

It's been a while since I used it, but I do not believe there is. But if you create a file in a directory that does not yet exists, I think it automatically creates it. 

Thanks for your Reply. Unfortunately when I want to create a File in a Folder, which doesn't exists, there is an error...

I just tried it and it worked fine for me:

It created the folder and then the file. What error did you get?

This is the Action. When i set the Folderpath to \\srvfile01\Daten\01_Kunden\A it works fine. 

 I get the following error message:

{
  "status"400,
  "message""Die angeforderte Aktion konnte nicht ausgeführt werden. Überprüfen Sie Ihre Anforderungsparameter, um sicherzustellen, dass der Pfad \"\\\\srvfile01\\Daten\\01_Kunden\\A\\Test/test.txt\" in Ihrem Dateisystem vorhanden ist.\r\nclientRequestId: 261107d1-6896-4714-a841-8824e4f15010",
  "error": {

  },
  "source""filesystem-we.azconn-we-01.p.azurewebsites.net"
}
 
 
Hope you find my mistake 🙂
 
Thanks!

Seems like it should work. Does the user that the connection is running under permission to create files in that folder?

The User has Access to the Folder and can create Folders.

@lucalerch 
Can you validate the path is correct ... In the screenshot you added the full path , but it should be relative to the root path defined in the file system connection. 

Thanks for your Reply. The path is correct.

 

This isn't working:

I tried on my flow and it seems to be able to create folders 
Can you check that the folder is shared with the user and that he has full control 
Just for testing try creating a test folder and share it with everyone with full control and see if you still get the error

@Mark-Shenouda

 

I created a new Folder "test" Everyone has Full Control. Unfortunately it doesn't work.

 

Error Message:

Die angeforderte Aktion konnte nicht ausgeführt werden. Überprüfen Sie Ihre Anforderungsparameter, um sicherzustellen, dass der Pfad "C:\Test\TestFolder/test.txt" in Ihrem Dateisystem vorhanden ist.

I can confirm the problem. I have changed AD user language to English but the problem is not fixed.
The flow fails on Windows 10 but seems to be working fine with Windows server 2012 R2.

Unfortunately, the issue is still unresolved.

 

For me it also didn't worked with changing Language to english. I don't think Microsoft will solve this issue -> They want you to use SharePoint.

Hallo , I am facing the same Problem in my power automate flow. Did anyone find a solution for this Problem. We do have a Server that uses German, will it really solve the Problem if we change the Language to English?? Or is there another new Solution to this Problem?

Hi orar1995, I think there is no other Solution for this.

 

It should work when you change the language to english.

We changed to english, and it doesn´t work 😞

I also tried first the action "Copy File" to create a folder, but it´s the same issue. The Folder-path at the end is wrong.

The input looks good 

\Auftragsabwicklung\2023\Marcus Schmidt\

and than the output

\\Auftragsabwicklung\\2023\\Marcus Schmidt/opener.txt
 
I don´t know, why it is so difficult to fix this problem 😞

Hi Everyone, 
In the end it did not work with me as well, but I have been able to save the files that I wanted to save inside a folder in OneDrive that gets cleared everyday, and the users could simply download the files from OneDrive,

just a hint if anybody might encounter the same problem
