Create a sharing link for a file or folder - Link scope

Hi,

 

I'm trying to build a flow that creates a Sharepoint sharing link for a file or folder, limited to a specific recipient. At the moment the only "Link Scope" options are:

 

Anyone with the link, including anonymous

People in your organisation

 

Neither of these would achieve what we need. However, I noticed a third option, called "Enter custom value".  Does anyone know what the capabilities / limitations are of this option, and what syntax it requires?

 

Thanks

Hi @adriaanvw ,

 

Scope must be either 'organization' or 'anonymous'. So custom value doesn't work here.

Unfortunately, MS Flow does not support such features. If you want similar features to be supported by MS Flow, please consider voting for similar idea:

Also, you could post your idea in the Flow Ideas forum, so it might be considered for future releases.

Hi @v-bacao-msft ,

 

Thanks for confirming my suspicions, and yes, I've already voted for that idea.

 

Kind regards,

Adriaan

There is a way to share to a "specific user" it just is not as clear because you don't use any of the email flow functions. see my response on page 4 of this link, this does allow to share to a specific user.
