OneDrive to Trello issue finding cards

Trying to figure out if/how its possible to have a flow that is triggered by the creation of an item (or modification of contents of a folder) in OneDrive, and the action is to find the corresponding (to the folder) Trello card and comment the link to the OneDrive folder. 

 

I have already worked out the trigger - but i have only been able to find actions that use specific trello cards using pre-defined cardIDs, and not a way to search for a string that finds a specific card (or some other method) and then comments on it. 

 

I looked through the Trello API REST code and was unable to isolate a function that would make this seamless. Perhaps there is another way? Any pointers would be awesome!

Hi @Zmagnetricity,

 

Would it be possible to filter the Get card lists, then use condition to find the proper card?

@v-micsh-msft thank you! 

 

Tried the method you presented and it definitely does its job.

The issue(s) I am having now are:

 

1) There doesn't seem to be an option for the trigger to be the creation of a folder inside of the specified directory - which is what I am hoping to achieve - instead it can only be triggerd by the creation of a file.

 

2) When I got the flow to run, by creating a word document inside of the specified directory, there was no comment on what should have been the corresponding Trello card - which leads me to believe there is some sort of user input error as far as getting it to recognize the card in trello that contains a string from the created file in onedrive.
      a) this is secondary, since I need it to be triggered by the creation of a folder.

 

End goal: trigger: creation of a folder in a specified directory in OneDrive for Business; action: list cards on trello board; conditional: if trello card contains string (folder name - part or whole), comment is made on Trello card containing the folder filepath (or link to folder)

 

See below for current configuration:

Hi @Zmagnetricity,

 

Good to hear it works, also thanks for the comments.

For the trigger idea, please consider post in the following forum:

Microsoft Flow idea

Currently there is no direct trigger for OneDrive for Business folder creation, also there is no action to create the folder.

Sounds good - I will do the cross-post now. 

 

Wondering if there is service that could be utlized with comparable functionality in the 365 family, instead of onedrive. Could the same flow be built with sharepoint or something else? 

@v-micsh-msft

 

Also, even when doing testing and using the creation of a file in a specified directory in onedrive as the trigger, it was not commenting on the relevant card in trello - even though all the steps ran successfully. 

 

my guess is that this was caused by the conditional being to specific a la. calling for a card name that contains the entire item name created in onedrive. Does that sound about right? Any suggestions on widening up those parameters?
