OpenApiOperationParameterTypeConversionFailed on Update Item - copying folder path from document library to list column

Hello,

 

In the below flow, I have it set that when an item is created, the item is updated with a custom Contract Reference.

The next action, grabs that reference and creates a folder in a document library with the same name.

The next action is supposed to go back to the item and write the folder location URL path to the "Document Folder" column.

However, when the flow is run, it fails on the second "Update item" action and results in the following error.
* Note, the custom reference number is written to the list item and the folder is correctly created in the document library.

 

OpenApiOperationParameterTypeConversionFailed. The 'inputs.parameters' of workflow operation 'Update_item' of type 'OpenApiConnection' is not valid. Error details: Input parameter 'item/DocumentFolder' is required to be of type 'String/uri'. The runtime value '"Contract Documents/"' to be converted doesn't have the expected format 'String/uri'.

Hi @sudosaurus 

 

What's the Date Type of Document Folder? Is this a string? Also check the runtime and see what value is returned for Folder Path?

 

A screenshot will be helpful.

 

Thanks

So, the "Contract Ref" column gets auto populated with this custom reference:
LWCM-DATE-ID

LWCM-@{formatDateTime(triggerOutputs()?['body/Contract_x0020_Start_x0020_Date'],'dd-MM-yyyy')}-@{triggerOutputs()?['body/ID']}

On the "Create folder in document library" action, a folder created and named the same as the custom reference number.

Then I have the second Update Item action where I choose Folder Path and place it in the "Document Folder" column which is of the type: URL or Picture

Hi @sudosaurus 

 

Thanks for the update.

 

Are you only updating Folder Path in your second Update Item? What's the column data type (text)?  

 

Thanks

Refer to this article : Setting and Updating SharePoint Hyperlink fields in Flow and Logic Apps - Collab365

URLs are basically special objects and you should use a REST API call to update url fields.

Hope this helps, let me know if you need more help
