Is there a way to delete a file from the origin point when the signed Flow has triggered for Adobe Sign

Hi there,

I am using the Flow template that when a document is signed in Adobe Sign it is created in an Approved folder with -signed after it.  This works fine, but what I want to do is remove it from the original location when this flow is running.

The problem I am not sure how to capture the path back to the original file.  I can pull out the agreement name as a dynamic value as part of the 'agreement workflow' process but I can't see how to actually find where that file is in the structure of folders we have for the various approvers.

Is anyone familiar with this and how I can find where the source file is in Sharepoint and delete it?

 

Thanks

Hi! I am afraid I don't have an Adobe Sign account to repro this, but the File Identifier field is the identifier from SharePoint. I don't think the trigger outputs have info to get the corresponding file from SharePoint.

 

If all files have a different name, perhaps you can use Get files (properties only) action from SharePoint, use Filter Query to get only the file name that matches the one signed. Then, from that Get files (properties only) action you might be able to get the id if the file to delete it.

I pass the get files information into a File array and then pull out the details from there, including the path to the documents level in Teams.

I can then delete the file after that step, thanks for your reply it sent it in the direction I needed to head.

I am looking to do this same thing, but it seems I may not be quite as tech savvy as you.  Could you possibly share a screen view of the final product for those who are power automate beginners, like myself?
