Get a file FROM Sharepoint Doc Library TO OneDrive for Business

How do I get the URL of a document in a Sharepoint Doc Library? 

 

I've tried https://mything.sharepoint.com/:w:/s/mysite/

  • ID
  • Identifier
  • FolderPath
  • Path
  • Filename With Extension
  • etc, etc, etc

 

Where is the "doc url" parameter!?!?! 

 

An example url is: https://mything.sharepoint.com/:w:/s/mysite/EVyZUHK8hk1FhL0segS-fqABmyOEH8jn2PfmSzrKzMRZDA?e=oXg3XZ

 

How is the long string on the end referenced? 

 

Thanks

Try this:

This Flow ran successfully for me.  One enhancement is that if you are saving the PDF back to the same document library, you want to add a condition (not a pdf file) so the Flow doesn't run a second time.

 

Please let me know if this solves your issue.

Can you explain a little more about what you are trying to accomplish?  I ask because you likely don't need to reference the URL in order to copy a file from OneDrive for Business to SharePoint.  The OneDrive connection that you use determines the URL.

Hi @ScottShearer

 

Thank you for the reply. Here is the deep explanation: 

 

  • Sharepoint: 
    • When an item is created
    • Get file content
    • Create file
    • Update file properties
  • OneDrive for Business
    • Want to take the Word from the Sharepoint doc repo
    • Convert it to PDF
    • Write the file back to the Sharepoint doc repo

Not interested in a 3rd party solution. OneDrive for Business has PDF conversion baked-in and i'd like to leverage it.

Nice work @ScottShearer! That was what I needed!

 

There is one little item... when I create a new record in the Sharepoint list using a form, the text is created as HTML. Any idea how to pull plaintext instead of HTML?

 

Here is what I end up with in my PDF where all I typed in the Sharepoint form was "test test test":

 

<div class="ExternalClass1A514AEE288F4C3B924055541FE3993D"><p>test test test
<span id="ms-rterangecursor-start"></span>
<span id="ms-rterangecursor-end"></span>
<br>
</p>
</div>

When I open the Sharepoint list and click "+ New" to create a record and test, I just fill in the blanks as such:

Above is my flow doing some super cool things..

 

And the output is HTML for the "Issue" field. I want it to be (of course) plain text.

Don't mean to be a pain, but can you post the detail of the first 4 steps in your Flow please.

Thats kind of secret sauce at the moment. I want to get a video out on some cool functionality before I expose that too much. sorry to be a wet blanket!

Wow... I feel like a jerk! My apologies to you @ScottShearer. Here you are sharing with me and I'm attempting to be veiled. Sorry man, corporate culture wearing off on me. 

 

Here is a screenshot of the first 4 steps of the flow:

@ScottShearer, I figured out what the problem was!

 

I had to edit the column settings for the cell coming across as HTML. Had to uncheck the "Use enhanced rich text..."

 

Works like a charm now.

As another option, I tried the new "Convert to Plain Text" Flow component and it worked as well.

 

Switched column back to Rich Text, then in Step 2 of the Flow, inserted the converter on that single column:
