Get all attachments from a sharepoint item combine to PDF

Good morning! 

 

Has anyone ever had to get all the attachments on a SharePoint item and convert/merge them to a single PDF? 

I am able to get all the attachments and convert to PDF (even if they are already PDF) and attach back to the SharePoint Item, but I cannot figure out how to essentially staple all the converted PDF's into one.

 

Is something like this possible?

Hey @BrandonMcG 

Unfortunately, merging documents to a single PDF document is not provided by native power automate actions and you will need a third party connector.

The following article outlines how to merge a collection of SharePoint files to a single PDF document, noting you'd need to change the SharePoint 'Get Files' action to the 'Get Attachments' action:

NOTE: You don't need to convert the documents to PDF before merging... the action will convert any non-PDF's to PDF and then merge.

We are not opposed to using a 3rd party platform however the documents are not in a "Library" they are attached to a SharePoint Item so the instructions are hard to follow and the data the controls have is different.

Hey@BrandonMcG 

Give me a few hours, I'll pull some detailed instructions together for you.

@BrandonMcG 

Do you have what you need to progress this one?

Cheers J
