Go to folder based on input from drop-down list



I want to perform an action on a specific existing folder on OfB, which I choose from a drop-list, but I always get the error "The expression "drive/items/01_PPTX/children" is not valid." (where 01_PPTX is the folder in this case)


This is the Trigger:

2018-10-21 10_45_19-Clipboard.png


And this is the result:

2018-10-21 10_45_19-Clipboard.png

Adding another '/' (eg /01_PPTX/) doesn't work.

Should I convert my input variable (Inputxxx) to something else first?


Kind regards,

Re: Go to folder based on input from drop-down list

Hi @ManuH,


Do you want to specify the OneDrive folder dynamically using options from the trigger?

Could you share more details on action List files in folder? How did you configure the Folder?

I have made a flow which is triggered by a Button, in List files in folder action, I select the folder from the Show picker. In List files in folder 2 action, configure the Folder using dynamic content from trigger.

However, when the flow is triggered, List files in folder 2 just failed with error “Cannot find resource for the request Attachment”.


Please share more details on this issue. I will do more research and back to you later.


Best regards,
