Creating a checklist item in Planner task

Hi All,

 

I am working on a connector which will allow the creation of checklist items in a task within planner. I have it working, but with a small snag - whenever I run the connector/action it only creates/updates one (the same) checklist item in any given task. I am guessing this is due to the way the API defines the creation of a checklist item: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/graph/api/resources/plannerchecklistitems?view=graph-rest-1.0 

 

To create a checklist item, I would need use a randomly generated guid for name/key in the json definition. I tried using a variable definition {guid} as the name, but it does not appear as a parameter/token within flow where I could pass along data.  (I've tried setting the parameter as a string in the swagger file, but since its apart of the body, I get the following error on the connector validation: "Contains a schema which has properties yet is not marked as type 'object'."

 

I plan on using the {{guid}} expression to generate the data, but how do I pass it along to the connector definition as a key/name for the checklist object?

 

I am new to Flow/Json, so please accept my appologies if this seems like a redundant question - I am unsure what to even look for to solve it.

Hi @drewkoppsoleil ,

 

Unfortunately, MS Flow does not currently support getting or appending checklist in Planner.

If you want similar features to be supported by MS Flow, please consider voting for similar ideas below:

In addition, It seems that someone has implemented a similar requirement through the Graph API, please check this similar thread and see if it helps:

Hi Drew,

 

In lieu of a tutorial, could you please copy the script you used in the source to update the task and create a checklist?  Flow still doesn't have the ability to create a checklist automatically so I'm hoping to use what you've done.

Have you created the tutorial? I can't seem to find it. Would love to see a copy of the Flow!
