Apply retention label with the action 'Send_an_HTTP_request_to_SharePoint'

I am trying to apply a retention label to a file when it is created or modified in a SharePoint Online library if Yes/No field of this file is set to Yes.

New2PA_0-1629966575921.png

 

I an following the method #9 in this article: Retention in SharePoint Online: the HOW – Joanne C Klein to invoke the Send an HTTP Request action from a Power Automate Flow to make a REST call against the document using the SetComplianceTag method.

New2PA_1-1629966702931.png

And I built my flow as below.

New2PA_2-1629966793969.png

Unfortunately the flow ran with a failure. The error is detected on the action 'Send_an_HTTP_request_to_SharePoint'.

Error Details:

 

{"odata.error":{"code":"-1, Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.InvalidClientQueryException","message":{"lang":"en-US","value":"The expression \"web/lists/GetByTitle(\u2018testdoc\u2019)/items(2)/SetComplianceTag()\" is not valid."}}}

Did i miss anything? Could my requirement be achieved by the action 'Send_an_HTTP_request_to_SharePoint'? If yes, how? If no, is there any alternative?

Hi @New2PA,

 

I just had a look in the interface. When I try to set it I see the POST request has an additional field I need to set, isUnlockedAsDefault. You might want to add that to your body field.

 

{
"complianceTag":"3YearsDeletion",
"isTagPolicyHold":false,
"isTagPolicyRecord":false,
"isEventBasedTag":false,
"isTagSuperLock":false,
"isUnlockedAsDefault":false
}

Hi @New2PA.

 

I just noticed the %E2%80%98, that corresponds with ‘ character in your error message 😁

 

Can you please use the ' character instead in the GetByTitle('').

The label is getting applied, but still I can delete the folder, it should not get deleted.

Please help me on this @Expiscornovus

Hi @Anonymous,

 

In the previous example the retention settings of the label are different. In that example we were deleting it after 3 years (the Only delete items when they reach a certain age setting). In that setup labeled items won't be retained, but when they reach the age you choose, they will automatically be deleted from where they're stored.​

 

In your example you want prevent it from being deleted. That type of definition comes with different retention settings. I believe in your setup the isTagPolicyHold should be true instead of false.

 

Try this instead:

 

 

{
"complianceTag":"00_Reference",
"isTagPolicyHold":true,
"isTagPolicyRecord":false,
"isEventBasedTag":false,
"isTagSuperLock":false,
"isUnlockedAsDefault":false
}

Hi @Expiscornovus 

 

Thank you for taking the time to get back to the users around this topic.

 

I am trying to create this same power automate to apply a retention label to files that already have a retention label on it. Will this work and also would it work on the condition of the 'Content type' metadata field is equal to a certain value?

 

Currently the bottom flow run successfully but the retention label does not override from the original label.
