Re: Renaming a File in SharePoint Online

Hope someone can help since there is clearly something I'm missing. I've followed the steps in the flows but when I do a test the workflow keeps running until it times out. When I look at what's happened I get a Bad Gateway error.

My flow looks like this

When I combine the site address with the uri, I can view the item's contents without any problems. Have I mistyped or omitted something?


Thanks,

Re: Renaming a File in SharePoint Online

Hi @faustocapellanj ,

I've tried to follow this post about renaming my file in SharePoint. It's been really helpful, but I'm getting the following error message:

 Capture2.PNG

 

Here is why I have:

Capture.PNG

 

When I use your recommended _api/web/lists/GetByTitle('List or Doc Library Name here')

My 'List of Doc Library Name' is 'Documents' and it returns 'SP.Data.Shared_x0020DocumentsItem'

 

I've tried using 'Documents' , 'SharedDocuments' and 'Shared_x0020Documents' instead of 'Shared%20Documents' but still getting the same error message. I wonder if you have an idea on how to get this to work?

Thanks !

Re: Renaming a File in SharePoint Online

Hi @izzie21 

I think your issue is that you are using the File Identifier instead of the ID property. If you look at the screenshot below, the section inside the red rectangle is expecting a number not a string.

Try that and let me know.

Re: Renaming a File in SharePoint Online

I have a Folder inside my List. Anyone know how to call that folder instead of the root of the list?

 

I've tried 
_api/web/lists/GetByTitle('Documents/General')

_api/web/lists/GetByTitle('Shared%20Documents/General')

 

And no response from the API. Error I get is 
List 'Documents/General' does not exist at site with URL 'https://

 

@faustocapellanj any thoughts?

Re: Renaming a File in SharePoint Online

Hi @BFroc 

I think for your case, you'll have to use the GetFolderByServerRelativeUrl endpoint. The link below has done information about this endpoint. By the way, I'd test the endpoint in the browser first to make sure you can see the folder you need and then try it in Power Automate.
