Is it possible to upload a file from a Canvas App to SharePoint's Document library?

Dear all, 

Perhaps someone has worked on a similar scenario?

Steps:

1. User opens a canvas app form in the SharePoint list.

2. User attaches a few files in the Canvas App form and enters other registration details;

3. User submit the form and the item with registration details is saved to the SharePoint list;

4. Attached files are uploaded to the SharePoint Document Library;

5. Links to the individual attached files, which were uploaded to the SharePoint list library, are saved in the respected fields (probably with the help of Power Automate):

6. Item in the SharePoint list is updated.


If not, do you think the fulfilment of such a scenario is possible taken into account features supported by the SharePoint Sites, Canvas Apps, and Power Automate? Many thanks ahead.

Hi @Anonymous ,

 

Upload and tag multiple files to SharePoint - https://youtu.be/r3UC3TMXhlI  & https://youtu.be/UYK7yruBHDM 

In flow, you can switch the add attachment action to create file.

Hi @Anonymous ,

If your number of files is small (i don't know ...less then 10), I think you should take in consideration to  use the attachments feature of the SharePoint list and the in the background,using a power automate flow, to save the files to your SharePoint Document Library if this is mandatory. 

 

Hope it helps !
