Setting the default column value of a subfolder in a document library using Power Automate

I have a Flow that automatically creates project folders in a document library on SharePoint based on a form response and I need different folders to have different default column values to make use of searching using metadata. The Folder structure is Client/Location/Project so I want the folders in the client folder to have a default value of the client, the location to have default values of client & location and I want the project folder to have default of the previous as well as the project number.

 

The issue i'm having is that I can set the default column value for the library but I run into issues when I try to set the default values of the subfolders. The error i'm receiving is "List 'xxxxxxxxxx/xx xxxxxx' does not exist at site with URL 'https://xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx'.
clientRequestId: c2e9facc-fe0d-4caf-a611-25f2c6fe21b8
serviceRequestId: 28bfa59f-5061-b000-a4fc-4d19b87acc90"

 

See screenshot below of configuration:

Hi @Anonymous,

 

For me it's not entirely clear if you want to update the default value of a column or if you just want to update the metadata of a list item, in this case a folder.

 

So, I have created REST API examples for both scenarios. Hope this helps a bit?

 

1. Update the default value of a document library field. In this case I am setting the default value of the field to Contoso Sports.

 

URI

 

_api/web/lists/GetByTitle('@{variables('LibraryName')}')/Fields/getbytitle('@{variables('FieldName')}')

 

Headers

 

{
  "Accept": "application/json;odata=verbose",
  "Content-Type": "application/json;odata=verbose",
  "X-HTTP-Method": "MERGE",
  "IF-MATCH": "*"
}

 

Body

 

{
  "__metadata": {
    "type": "SP.Field"
  },
  "DefaultValue": "Contoso Sports"
}

2. Update the value of that same field for an item in the document library. In this example I am first retrieving the ListItemEntityTypeFullName. I am using that value for the type in the second request. In this case I am setting the value of the field of the folder item to Contoso.

 

URI

 

_api/web/lists/GetByTitle('@{variables('LibraryName')}')?$select=ListItemEntityTypeFullName

 

Headers

 

{
  "Accept": "application/json;odata=nometadata"
}

 

listentitytypename.png

 

URI

 

_api/web/lists/getByTitle('@{variables('LibraryName')}')/items(1)

 

Headers

 

{
  "content-type": "application/json; odata=verbose",
  "accept": "application/json; odata=verbose",
  "IF-MATCH": "*",
  "X-HTTP-METHOD": "MERGE"
}

 

Body

 

{
	"__metadata": {
    "type": "@{outputs('Send_an_HTTP_request_to_SharePoint_-_ListItemEntity')?['body/ListItemEntityTypeFullName']}"
  },
  "@{variables('FieldName')}": "Contoso"
}

Thank you for your detailed reply, for the 2nd one I get an error saying "Invalid JSON. A comma character ',' was expected in scope 'Object'. Every two elements in an array and properties of an object must be separated by commas."

 

bthomas_0-1611914080163.png

 

However, the main issue I have and need resolving is setting a default value in a column specifically for the project name subfolder e.g. Contoso/ProjectName

 

Thanks,

I think I have the same need as the original poster - who did not seem to have gotten his issue resolved.

 

We are trying to use Power Automate to set the default column value at the folder level. Ie. corresponding to the following UI in Sharepoint - Not the general default value for the column in the document library.

MortenNB_0-1626163866003.png

 

Any ideas on how to achieve this?

Hi @Anonymous did you ever get this working.  I am trying to do the same thing

I'm assuming this was never resolved? 

 

Is there a restapi that allows us to set this setting?

There are a few open threads around this request and I figured it out today so thought I'd drop what I figured...

 

And, a warning:


🔥TWO LIBRARIES DIED IN THE MAKING OF THIS POST 🔥 


Don't try this on a Prod library! Test it out and get it working first. (Luckily I wasn't as stupid as I normally am and only tried in test sites.)

First, my goal was to set default values on sub-folders. 

Here is my Flow:

Rhiassuring_0-1659565785010.png

 

One caveat - this won't work until you've modified one default, as this seems to create the file in the background. (For myself, I have one piece of Library metadata that will default across the board, so I am going to see if I can just set that through API on its own - but wanted to post this first. UPDATE: Updating one default didn't work to trigger the HTML creation. Oh well.) 

Step 1)
Initialize a string variable.

Step 2)
Get the client_LocationBasedDefaults.html content.

Rhiassuring_1-1659565866808.png

Step 3) I have a Compose for step 3, but that's just because it kept failing based on everything I was reading, so I wanted to look at what the DEFAULT output was from this file. If you want to see, you will do this in a Compose:  

 

decodeBase64(body('Send_an_HTTP_request_to_SharePoint_-_Get_Defaults_String')?['$content'])

Step 4) Build your defaults! It's not even difficult it's just SO PICKY. Here I am setting values for 2 different folders.

Rhiassuring_2-1659565944057.png

 

 

 

 <MetadataDefaults><a href="/sites/Intranet/TestDefaults/Test1"><DefaultValue FieldName="TextTest">bad</DefaultValue></a><a href="/sites/Intranet/TestDefaults/Test2"><DefaultValue FieldName="TextTest">good</DefaultValue></a></MetadataDefaults> 

 

 

 

Step 5) Cram it back into the file and rejoice.

Rhiassuring_3-1659565986952.png

Here's what it looks like, with some more complex sends... showing that it inherits properly.

Rhiassuring_0-1659568308441.png

I've never been so happy to see those horrible little green gears. Flowers? They kind of look like ICQ flowers.

PS: This works with MMD as well but you need to structure it as -1;#LABEL|LABELGUID

Thank you so much for this! I did get it to work by testing what you provided above. However, when I'm trying to do multiples of the same folder on different site columns, it completes, but only changes the first one. Any idea of my error?

<MetadataDefaults>
<a href="/sites/Projects/TestDefaults/Test1"><DefaultValue FieldName="State">TX</DefaultValue></a>
<a href="/sites/Projects/TestDefaults/Test1"><DefaultValue FieldName="Vesper Dept">Projects</DefaultValue></a>
<a href="/sites/Projects/TestDefaults/Test2"><DefaultValue FieldName="State">CA</DefaultValue></a>
<a href="/sites/Projects/TestDefaults/Test2"><DefaultValue FieldName="Vesper Dept">Projects</DefaultValue></a>
</MetadataDefaults>

Thank you for you blogpost.

In my flow, a new folder is created and then I want to set the default values for the columns.
I can run the flow successfully and the default values are set on the newly created folder, however, the the default values of the previously created folders are deleted.
In my case the file "client_LocationBasedDefaults.html" is overwritten, so that only the folder created in the flow has a default value.

How do I make sure the new value is added in to the current client_LocationBasedDefaults.html file instead of creating a new client_LocationBasedDefaults.html every time.

You can just create a condition to query for that file - if it finds it, then, just copy the text out and append your updates. If it doesn't, then, create a new one.

Thanks for this post but i have given it many tries doing exactly as you do but i am unable to get this working in anyway. I am able to get this working in powershell PNP (i am at the point to just build a function app for this).

It is a crucial function to have so is there perhaps more information you can give or test if this still works as expected

When you have multiple for the same folder, the syntax is different. Try something like this:

<MetadataDefaults>
<a href="/sites/Projects/TestDefaults/Test1"><DefaultValue FieldName="State">TX</DefaultValue><DefaultValue FieldName="Vesper Dept">Projects</DefaultValue></a>
<a href="/sites/Projects/TestDefaults/Test2"><DefaultValue FieldName="State">CA</DefaultValue><DefaultValue FieldName="Vesper Dept">Projects</DefaultValue></a>
</MetadataDefaults>

Okay y'all, buckle up. I know this is more than two years old but it's basically the only post I found while trying to do this so hopefully this saves someone else the headache.

 

All kudos to @Rhiassuring whose work above was the foundation for this post. I literally would not have known where to start without them.

 

Here's how I figured out how to add new defaults to the existing defaults. Important note here that these steps assume the client_LocationBasedDefaults.html file already exists, which it will not unless at least one column default has been set through the UI. In my use-case I do not have a need to programmatically create new client_LocationBasedDefaults.html files, only update the existing one for an existing library, so I did not spend time trying to figure that out.

 

Step 1. Get the path to your client_LocationBasedDefaults.html file

Go to your SharePoint site’s document library (at the top level) through a web browser and then copy the URL, it will look something like this:

https://mycompanyonline.sharepoint.com/sites/mysubsite/LibraryName/Forms/AllItems.aspx

or

https://mydomain.sharepoint.com/sites/intranet/LibraryName/Forms/AllItems.aspx

Now replace the “AllItems.aspx” at the end of your URL with “client_LocationBasedDefaults.html” like 

https://acmecorponline.sharepoint.com/sites/RR-Catalog/Shared%20Documents/Forms/client_LocationBasedDefaults.html

 

Step 2. Add the “Send an HTTP request to SharePoint” action in your Flow. Pick your site and GET as the method. For a URL like my above example, the Uri would be as follows:

_api/Web/GetFileByServerRelativePath(decodedurl='/sites/RR-Catalog/Shared%20Documents/Forms/client_LocationBasedDefaults.html ')/$value?binaryStringResponseBody=true

Don’t populate Headers or Body sections.

 

Step 3. Modify the existing client_LocationBasedDefaults.html content to be able to use later.

The output of Step 2 is going to be the current folder defaults for that library. It will look something like this: (line breaks added for readability – don’t put line breaks in your actual Flow!)

<MetadataDefaults>

<a href=\"/sites/RR-Catalog/Shared%20Documents/Anvils\"><DefaultValue FieldName=\"Class\">Anvil</DefaultValue></a>

<a href=\"/sites/RR-Catalog/Shared%20Documents/Disguises\"><DefaultValue FieldName=\"Class\">Costume</DefaultValue></a>

<a href=\"/sites/RR-Catalog/Shared%20Documents/Cooking%20Utensils\"><DefaultValue FieldName=\"Class\">Appliance</DefaultValue></a>

<a href=\"/sites/RR-Catalog/Shared%20Documents/Jets%20%26%20Motors\"><DefaultValue FieldName=\"Class\">Transport</DefaultValue></a>

</MetadataDefaults>

We need to insert our new defaults into this file before the </MetadataDefaults> closing tag, and we need to remove all the backslashes (\) - the string you put together to put in the HTTP request later should have NO backslashes in it. Don't replace them - remove them. Use a compose and nest a decodeBase64 formula within the replace formula:

replace(decodeBase64(body(‘Step_2_Action’)?['$content']), '\', '')

Then we need to remove the closing Metadata tag so that we can append our changes in a later step:

substring(outputs('Previous_Compose'),0,sub(length(outputs('Previous_Compose'')),19))

 

Step 4. Determine your new defaults.

All of the folders in the above example are located at the top level of the library. As you go deeper into the folder structure the syntax of the metadata defaults simply extends the URL. For example, “Shared Documents > Jets & Motors > Jet Bike Kit” would be:

<a href=\"/sites/RR-Catalog/Shared%20Documents/Jets%20%26%20Motors/Jet%20Bike%20Kit\"><DefaultValue FieldName=\"Class\">Transport</DefaultValue></a>

Notice how Jet Bike Kit became Jet%20Bike%20Kit and Jets & Motors became Jets%20%26%20Motors? If you are building your own path out of dynamic values in Flow, you have to account for the required formatting. Replace all spaces with %20:

replace({dynamicvalue}, ‘ ’, ‘%20’)

Look out for other types of special characters in your folder names. Don't have any if you can help it, but if you do you will have to replace them with what SharePoint actually sees - look at the URL you get when you navigate to that folder in the library to get an idea of what SharePoint sees as the actual folder path and name. Once you know that, you can add steps in the flow to replace or remove certain special character from the dynamic values before you plug them into your final string. In this case, we know that & = %26, so we would write a replace formula for the & symbol:

replace({dynamicvalue}, ‘&‘, ‘%26’)

This only applies to the path, the default value itself does not need to be transformed.

In my scenario, I am updating a folder’s metadata based on values in a list item. The list items are categorized by the top-level folders, meaning I have a field on the list that tells me if the item is Anvils, Disguises, Cooking Utensils, or Jets & Motors. So, I would do something like this:

2023-06-16_18-14-20.png

replace(replace(triggerOutputs()?['body/Class'], ‘ ’, ‘%20’), ‘&’, ‘%26’)
replace(triggerOutputs()?['body/Title'], ‘ ’, ‘%20’)
<a href="/sites/RR-Catalog/Shared%20Documents/@{outputs('Compose_Path_Class')}/@{outputs('Compose_Path_Title')}"><DefaultValue FieldName="SKU">@{triggerOutputs()?['body/SysID']}</DefaultValue></a>

 

Step 4a. What if I want to add more than one default value to a folder?

If you need to set multiple defaults for the same folder, you need to do that within the <a> tag, so you wouldn’t close the tag until you’ve covered them all. Add more by adding additional <DefaultValue> tags after the URL. For example:

<a href=\"/sites/RR-Catalog/Shared%20Documents/ Jets%20%26%20Motors/Tennis%20Balls\"><DefaultValue FieldName=\"Class\">Transport</DefaultValue><DefaultValue FieldName=\"Department\">Sports</DefaultValue></a>

In this case you would likely want to build each <DefaultValue FieldName=\"{column}\">{defaultvalue}</DefaultValue> statement separately and then combine them all into one statement with the folder path. I prefer compose actions over variables, but it may make more sense to have a string variable and an append to string variable action if you have a lot of default values you want to add to a single folder.

 

Step 4b. What if I want to update more than one folder at a time?

If you will be adding multiple folders in one flow, that basically equates to adding multiple lines. I would recommend using an apply to each if possible (and/or call a subflow) to go through the steps to modify and combine your default values for each folder you would want to update. In this scenario, you would have to add an additional action after my Compose New Path that is an append to string variable so that your output will capture all the options. Then wherever I am plugging in outputs('Compose_New_Path') you would plug in the string variable.

 

Step 5. Combine the existing with the new.

This is thankfully a simple concat:

concat(outputs('Compose_LocationBasedDefaults'), outputs('Compose_New_Path'), ‘</MetadataDefaults>’)

 

Step 6. Upload it back to SharePoint

Use the “Send an HTTP request to SharePoint” action again, with PUT as the Method and a Uri like:

_api/Web/GetFileByServerRelativePath(decodedurl='/sites/RR-Catalog/Shared%20Documents/Forms/client_LocationBasedDefaults.html ')/$value

 

In the body, enter the output from your concat in Step 5.

 

In my flow I ended up combining a bunch of these steps, but I would strongly recommend you create each one separately first and make sure it works on a test library before doing that yourself. I would also recommend saving the original output from the first HTTP request and adding that into a compose while you’re building it, because as you test you will be appending on to your previous tests, which can compound mistakes and make it hard to tell when you’ve succeeded. If you have the OG code ready in a compose, you can swap that output back into your flow in between real tests to ‘reset’ the file.

Hi all! You mentioned that it works for Managed Metadata Column, but we need specific template 1;#LABEL|LABELGUID. But I don't understand where we can find the first number. With random number it doesn't work. Do you know the secret, how we need to set those values?) 

Go to the Term Store (where you created the Managed Metadata in the first place - can be found by adding /_layouts/15/SiteAdmin.aspx#/termStoreAdminCenter to the end of your site address) click on the term you want the ID for, then click on the "Usage settings" tab and copy the Unique identifier:

RathwynAE_0-1691445873827.png

 

Then you want it formatted like this:

Apptio|310483e1-56b3-4f66-a014-7bd52c0362fd

 

This is what you will need whenever referencing the Managed Metadata basically anywhere that's not a user interface - like if you want to Switch on it in a Power Automation flow, the Case would be in that same format.

Frequent Visitor

Both posts here from @Rhiassuring and @RathwynAE were great here and I was almost there. 

I have created a Team create form in a powerapp that querys the Term Store for the Customer so that the users can have their documents automatically tagged from the start. 

I got as far as being able to set the managed metadata default value on to a column, but when testing, the documents are not being 'tagged' and the values when clicking on the column in the default column values settings, the defaul setting is not actually set.

I tried creating the client_LocationBasedDefaults.html file, but had no luck. It really feels like that is the key. Manually setting it isnt a solution as the customer wants this flow to skip needing to touch the site before handing it over to the owners. 

Anyone got any ideas about creating that file? 

Hi Karina, 

From my work this week, i have found that that number is always '-1', so you can build the structure in a compose action. It may have not been working as you were using '1'?

The first number isn't the standard -1 WssId, it's the ID for the metadata term in your site's locally cached TaxonomyHiddenList:

/sites/YourSiteName/Lists/TaxonomyHiddenList/AllItems.aspx

 

Browse to that list and show the columns 'IdForTerm' and 'ID' -- the ID is what you need to compose your string 'ID;#LABEL|LABELGUID'. The IDs are auto-increment and apply to any metadata used in the Site Collection, doesn't matter what term set they belong to or what List they are used in. When you manually set a metadata value (via a form, using the library column defaults page, etc.) and use a term for the first time it will add it to the TaxonomyHiddenList and you'll get a new ID generated.

 

Even thought you know what the next ID number will be, updating client_LocationBasedDefaults.html with new, sequential IDs won't work since it doesn't actually add them to the TaxonomyHiddenList. You need to get the terms added to TaxonomyHiddenList first so you can retrieve their IDs to then write to client_LocationBasedDefaults.html. You could create a test List, use Flow to loop through every term in your set and assign it to a List item. That would populate TaxonomyHiddenList with all your terms and IDs so you could then query that list to get the IDs you would need. This is what I've had to do since I don't have permission to run Powershell.

Hi RathwynAE,

Can you please share the Screen shot of the full flow because I am trying to do the same but I am getting errors.

Hey there,

 

I also had a customer with the request to create the client_LocationBasedDefaults.html file, without manual input before. So I fiddled around a bit and found a PowerShell script to create a client_LocationBasedDefaults.html file: https://github.com/msisgreat/ps/blob/master/Upload_client_LocationBasedDefaults.ps1

 

I tried converting this into a flow and got this working:

Hope this helps! 😊

Updates to Transitions in the Power Platform Communities

We're embarking on a journey to enhance your experience by transitioning to a new community platform. Our team has been diligently working to create a fresh community site, leveraging the very Dynamics 365 and Power Platform tools our community advocates for.  We started this journey with transitioning Copilot Studio forums and blogs in June. The move marks the beginning of a new chapter, and we're eager for you to be a part of it. The rest of the Power Platform product sites will be moving over this summer.   Stay tuned for more updates as we get closer to the launch. We can't wait to welcome you to our new community space, designed with you in mind. Let's connect, learn, and grow together.   Here's to new beginnings and endless possibilities!   If you have any questions, observations or concerns throughout this process please go to https://aka.ms/PPCommSupport.   To stay up to date on the latest details of this migration and other important Community updates subscribe to our News and Announcements forums: Copilot Studio, Power Apps, Power Automate, Power Pages
