flow with in a library with a boolean type column

Hello ,

 

I am currently working on a project where the user files a document in the library, it provides information in the columns, including one that is in boolean type.
I would like to create a flow, when the column Type boolean is true the file moves to another library.

I used a flow model
"When a file is created" + "add condition" + "create file".
condition:
If the file is true then I deport it otherwise I do not move it.

In the condition field I must enter the value that must be true.

Is it possible to retrieve the column type boolean as value?
Do I have to create my own expression?

Thanks for your help.

Hi @Edvh ,

 

You said that your flow does not start and does not move the file, do you mean your flow wouldn't be triggered? Or do you mean your flow would run however don't move the file?

 

I suspect that your flow would run and there is any error in your flow, please share the screenshot of the run history of the flow when it is run failed and share more details about the error message.

 

And please make sure:

1. You have selected the Identifier dynamic content in the file to Move field.

2. Choose the Destination Folder from the Picker.

Hi @Edvh 

 

Under the IF condition of the flow step you can map the boolean column type and check the value is true.

 

Thanks

Hi @Edvh 

 

In the condition operator, comprate the dynamic content boolean field with the expression value true

Hi @Edvh ,

 

You just need to compare the boolean Type column with expression true.

What is the name of the boolean Type column?

You could refer to my screenshot below for compare a name "boolean" of boolean Type column with expression true:

Hello,


I worked this weekend on the project, and I can not find a solution.
I put in copy my three screenshots:
library A
Bibliography B
flow

I thought @v-alzhan-msft 

 

 

biblioA.pngbiblioB.pngcondition.pngmethod but I must be wrong somewhere, because the flow does not start and does not move the file.

Thanks for your help

Thanks @v-alzhan-msft@RezaDorrani @abm for your help.

 

I did not enter the correct field in "File to Move"

When i entered "Identifier" in the field "File to Move" the flow worked.

 

Thank you very much for your help.

 

Best regards,

 

Edvh
