Associate Flow with Document libraries

I'm trying to create a flow in flow. But after connecting to the SharePoint site to dock the database, I verify that it only reads the lists and not the document libraries. So I assume that FLOW handles only pure metadata, and not even metadata associated with files. Is this conclusion right? and is there any way to work on collections of documents? I had imagined that a workaround could be to automatically generate a list with the metadata associated with the collection of documents. But it would be a fairly complex procedure. Is there any other indication?

Re: Associate Flow with Document libraries

Hi @apuca,

 

I think you may not notice some existing actions.

SharePoint connector provides a lot of actions to manipulate the content in SharePoint site, including list, library, event etc.

As for "metadata associated with files" you mentioned, there are existing actions like Get file metadata that can be used. You could try to use these existing actions.

For more information on SharePoint connector related actions, please refer to the online doc:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/connectors/sharepointonline/

Also if you have any questions about the relevant action configuration, feel free post back, we would provide a proper workaround for you.
