API to download & upload files from/to any repository

Hi all;

We are trying to set up a system where, when a record is added to a data repository, we then go read (download) one or more files from another repository, use those files and the data to generate some files, and then write (upload) them to a repository (usually the same one we downloaded from.

For the trigger for a record added, we are looking at Power Automate - seems to be exactly what we need.

Does PowerPlatform have an API to download/upload files from all the common repositories out there? In our case it could be DropBox or OneDrive, but it can also be (and more likely is) Salesforce, JIRA, QuickBooks Online, NetSuite, etc.

thanks - dave

ps - If not, we could probably do it with CData or Skyvia but we then have to figure out the query & insert statements for each.

Hi @DavidThielen,

 

You can definitely do this - you have a template that you can check and test, as a start point.

For example, if you have a file in OneDrive, when it's modified you could save it in SharePoint.

 

Hope this helps,

Ovidiu

How?

You are listing what I want to do but you are not listing how I can accomplish it.

And we will need to do this programatically (from our web app).

 

thanks - dave
