HTTP get download file

Hi

 

I have a service that provides an API where I can download files with at HTTP GET command and basic auth. It works fine when Im testing the API with Postman but I cant find out how to download that file with Flow and for example put it in my onedrive. Anybody that could help me out a bit?

 

Regards,

If the file is a binary and you are looking for a way to simply transfer files between the HTTP endpoint and any storage service, you can add a HTTP to download the file and save the content using the "Create File". Here is an example of a flowHTTPSave.PNG

Hi @Ozcar,

 

Please check the following blog:

Five new services and improved advnaced capabilities for JSON and HTTP

 

In your scenario, I think HTTP action and the Parse JSON should be suitable to work.

Hi

 

Thank you for showing me that! It was super cool to parse JSON respones. But unfortunally I dont know how to write a schema that will take care of a binary gzip file. Any idea?

Yes it works! Sometimes the solution is so so easy. Thank you very much.

Hello Ozcar

 

kann you post screenshots of the solution you used?

Does your link links direct to the file or is a Callback or Server Response?

 

It seems that with JSON can be done but I also don´t know how to do it exactly.

 

I would strongly apreciate your help!

 

Cheers

Hi

 

Its very simple. Works exactly as described above. Do an HTTP GET and create the file with the body response. Not sure what is unclear with the solution.

Thank you for your feedback Ozcar. The problem with this settings is that the URL is a redireccion, and I get a 302 error. These are the details.

 

Do you have any ideas to manage this URLs?

 

Thanks in advance.

 

 

No it seems to be a problem with response from the service you are trying to use. I dont have a direct solution for you but I recommend to use Postman first before attempting to get it to work in Flow.

Hello Ozcar, 

 

It just workt parsing the JSON. Thank you very much anyway.  This is how I did it.

Is this working still? I'm trying the same exact thing but I don't get the "Body" variable containting the csv data from the HTTP GET.  Usually, when available it shows as Dynamic content but it's not there.   I typed it it to no avail.

 

 

 

Its working fine for me.

I am doing the same thing and have the Flow working perfectly. The Create File has the contents of the file, etc.
BUT, I can't figure out how to force the PowerApp to display or download the file.
First, I added a "Respond to PowerApp" with the "TheFile" from the "Create File" and I can reference "TheFile" in the PowerApp - BUT - the Download() function expects a URL.
So, how to a force the PowerApp to show and/or download the file to the user?

What URL would you enter in Power Automate since the link will vary with every email? For example, https://api.realwebsite.com/files/abcdefg/[variableparthere]

@Ozcar @tphill @dav_formica @Alerodri HTTP is a premium function, right?
