Create a folder structure in library using REST API


I need to create folder structure in doc library using flows.

Based on this structture i need to create folders in doc library

I am achieving this CREATE NEW FOLDER in flow but through REST API nedd to create using send an http request.

@SBK52  below is example of rest api to create folder using Send HTTP request to SharePoint 




Uri: _api/Web/Folders/add('shared documents/flowfolder1/subfolder1')

here Shared Documents is url of library

flowfolder1 is parent folder - if parent folder does not exist then first create parent folder using the same rest api but URL as _api/Web/Folders/add('shared documents/flowfolder1')

subfolder1 is the new sub folder that will be created by this rest api
