Copy file fails - Member 'Level' was not found


I'm trying to copy a file from one site to another site, and this fails.
The information about where the file is located comes with an HTTP Post message. I've checked that the file exists in the right location and that the Flow has rights to read the sites.


The file is a normal page (.apsx) file, and should be copied from /SitePages library to another /SitePages library.

I had this working on my dev tenant, but now it fails: Member 'Level' was not found.

I'm not sure what this means...




Appreciate any thoughts and answers

If i move file instead of copy it works............ 
And after reading the documentations it seems like Copy and Move file uses the same parameters.

Hi @Anonymous,


Could you try again with it? Are you still having the issue?

It seems that there was some issue with action Copy file. I have made another test and it is working for me now.

Please take another try and feel free post back if the issue still exists.

I tried again, but now I also get the metadata for the file just in case... 




But it still fails unfortunately (same error message as before), even though I use the dynamic Path value.
If I use ID it also fails with same error.

Hi @Anonymous,


Please try to use dynamic content File identifier for the File to copy field.


What’s the previous action of Copy file?

From which action do you get the dynamic content ID for the File to copy field?

Unfortunately I can't access the "file identifier" because I use the get metadata and get file properties, and none of these return the identifier.

The ID I get from the "get metadata" action. Looks like this:

When it worked it was like this, using filepath. I had it working 2 weeks ago, 19 desember actually.

When I use the exactly same values with "Move file" it works normally.
There must be something wrong with the "Copy file" action, at least copying from one site collection to another site collection.
Even when I hardcode it like this it shows the same error message:

Could it be something about the state of the aspx file?

It worked on Friday, but now it doesn't seem like it works anymore...
