ftp setting options (get account name from a dynamic variable)

Hello,

 

I am trying to make a flow to download all uploaded files on FTP to my Ondrive.

The situation is that the target FTP provides a different anonymous account name every time for the security reason.

However, when I tried to make a flow to do that, I failed to find a way to set the account ID of FTP changed according to the input value.

 

For example, the system sends me "aaaaa" as an account name when a case is created, and an user uploads relevant files to a specific folder of FTP which is directly connected to the account "aaaaa".

Then I go to FTP address, and input aaaaa on the account box and nothing on the password box.

Then, I can see the relevant files on the specific folder.
Then, I download the whole relevant files from FTP.

 

Is there anyone already figuring out how this can be done?

Or,

Do I need to ask MS to develop this feature on FTP module?

 

Thank you in advance.

Hi @Daehyun,

 

I am afraid that account name cannot be got dynamically directly. While if you are familiar with Custom APIs, you could try to use Custom APIs to get the account name. More details about registering Custom APIs with flow, please check it at here:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/flow/developer/register-custom-api

 

You could also consider submit a request on Flow Ideas Forum about this feature:
