Copy file from one sharepoint tenant to another tenant

I am wanting to copy files between two sharepoint libraries that are in different tenants. I have so far created a flow that detects when a file is created or updated on one side, it then takes the content of the file and creates the file on the other tenant, but it seems to create the file but with no content.


Any ideas of another way


Much Appreciated

HI @djw1005 


Can you please share a screenshot of the flow you have created? Are you using the get file content action to get the file and using the create file action to create the new file in the other tenant?

Can you please check and confirm what is the content of the file on which you are triggering this flow?


Edit: Just putting the file content in the email id will not get the actual file content, instead it will be of form binary coded string. 


It will work on the create file action though. 


Hope this Helps!

The file content doesn't work at all as I thing it should. It's not pulling in the content of the word file

My issue is on similar lines. I am able to copy the file from one site to another site and want to capture the root site name. We are sending the email to the approver and they want to know from where the content or page is copied. Is it possible?
