We are unable to find the site address. Please try selecting a site address from the dropdown.

I am attempting to build some very simple FLOWS in SharePoint. When I attempt to setup the trigger my site does not appear in the drop down even though I have the site open in another tab. Only 1 of the sites I have created appears in the list but not the one I need. When I attempt to manually enter the site url I get the following error;

We are unable to find the site address. Please try selecting a site address from the dropdown.

 

I have tested the manually entered url by copying it to the address bar of a browser. - I access the site every time

My site URL is https://uark.sharepoint.com/sites/hous-cross

Flow cannot see this site at all. In fact flow will not allow me to proceed any further.

Hi @lmartini,

 

Thanks for feedback.

What’s your current situation? Are you still having the issue?

Could you use the site addresses before?

Please make sure you are using the right site URL.

By the way, could you try to create a flow for a list or library in SharePoint Online? Please take a try with it to see if the site address will be populated automatically.

Please check the following doc for more details:

Please feel free post back if you are still having the issue.

 

Best regards,

All of this activity is in SharePoint Online.

 

I was able to access the site addresses last week. All of my sites appeared in the drop down.

 

This situation occurs when I attempt to create new Flows. The first step is to insert the trigger. The trigger I was using was When a file is created or modified. I also tried to use the “properties only” version of this as well. The first parameter that must be provided is the site. When I attempt to use the drop down only one of my sites appears ( not the correct one). When I attempt enter the url of the correct site the insertion point jumps back and forth in the entry line. I have to watch very carefully as I enter the url to make sure that the insertion point is at the end of the entry. After I have completed the url entry, nothing else works in the Flow. When I insert the table name Flow errors out again and says it can’t find the table. I know the url entry is correct because I copy it into the address line of another tab of my browser and press enter. I am able to access the site.

 

Hi @lmartini,

 

Could you try to recreate the connection to see if it will work?

The issue could not be reproduced by me.

If you are still having the issue, please feel free post back. 

 

Best regards,

I am having the exact same issue. Today in SharePoint Online I created a new site from the Modern admin center. The URL to the site is https://companyname.sharepoint.com/sites/HelpDesk. I then created a custom list on that site which is what I am setting up my flow for. My site does not show up in the drop down, I have tried typing in the address manually and copy and pasting it. Same thing every time. "We are unable to find the site address. Please try selecting a site address from the dropdown".  Please help

Same here. I have a lot of sites, two of them have almost identical URLs. The first one appears in the drop down and I can make the flow no problem. The second though does not appear in the drop-down and even though the difference in the name and the URL is a single letter, after editing the site is not accepted. Very frustrating...

 

I also find it confusing that the name of the site seems to be required as well as the URL.

UPDATE: I have since found that if I open the site and click on a few pages therein, the site now becomes visible in the drop-down. I guess the system is trying to be clever and show us only the most recently used top 10-15 sites? We have hundreds of sites so it would be nice to have some other way of populating...a search perhaps?

Hi @lmartini 

 

Could you try the below?

 

Under the SharePoint action step where you enter the site name click the Dynamic content and enter the site name manually. Save the flow. Generally it should resolve the site name correctly.

 

Thanks

 

Thanks
