Flow not running automatically

Hello!

 

I have created a flow, which copies images from my FTP to onedrive. These images are being updated regularly, with new file names.

 

When I test the flow it works OK, and sends the file.

 

However when I leave the flow to automate, nothing happens. The flow doesn't seem to run. (It is turned on).

 

My flow looks like this: https://1drv.ms/u/s!Ag7I4LdLbVZh6gOaO4bXs8KqKlVi

 

Any ideas?

 

Thanks!

Hi @agour,

 

The flow you provided would run when a file is added or modified to the folder timelapse in your FTP.

 

Does the flow would works fine when you test it and wouldn't run when you leave the flow to automate?

 

Could you please explain more details about how you test the flow or leave the flow to automate?

 

Please share more details so we would try to provide a proper workaround for you.

 

 

Best regards,

Alice

Hi Alice,

 

Ok so I hit 'test' and then upload a JPEG image to the FTP. The script then runs fine, and sends the image to onedrive.

 

 

I have an IP camera sending images to the FTP every 10 minutes. The flow doesn't seem to run at all in this instance.

 

I've done some looking into the FTP and I think I have figured it out.

 

The FTP doesn't seem to show the latest files, even though they are there. If I connect via http I can see all of the images.

 

I imagine this is some sort of hosting issue, so I will email to find out.

 

In the meantime, is it possible to have the http source used instead of ftp?

 

Thanks!
