Update SharePoint site page properties with Send HTTP request



I have a list in one SharePoint site which represents normalized data I want to turn into site pages. I'm using this technique to make it happen:


(39) Create SharePoint Site Pages automatically with Power Automate - YouTube


In some of the columns on my list of items that I will convert to site pages have data that I want to map to site page properties. The end goal I'm shooting for is the same as what's highlighted in the video I shared. A list in one SP site driving the creating of pages in another SP library. The one variation I want to make here is updating page properties after the new page has been created. This is important because I need these properties to develop the UX my end-users will need and I don't want to do this by hand since we have a few hundred list items to convert to site pages.

Hi @kevintaylor81,


It should be possible to use the update file properties action for this.


Below is an example of that.



@Expiscornovus Thanks! That got me moving forward but I've hit a new snag


I'm getting an access denied error in my flow's second step.



Here is the raw output from that step.

Hi @kevintaylor81,


Can you share a screenshot of the configuration of that action? Just want to check for instance the URI in the action.


I also notice that you are using the GetFileByUrl method in your error message.


In SharePoint Online I have seen a lot of examples which use the GetFileByServerRelativeUrl method instead. Might be worth checking that as well:

Here is the image I think you're asking for. In the video I shared where the developer demonstrates this method, they started by using a relative URL method, but I wasn't able to get that to work so tried this. Would I just swap out that one string for GetFileByServerRelativeUrl?

I tried the GetFileByServerRelativeUrl method and this is what I got.
