How can I create a share link of a file in my 'Onedrive for business' with longer than 1 hr expiration?

Hi,

 

In my MS flow, I am using 'Create share link' in  'Onedrive for business'.

But I find out that that link will expire after 1 hr of creation.  I have tried using 'anonymous' or 'organization'

but both will expired in an hr.

How can I create a share link which lasted longer than an hr?

 

Thank you.

Sam

Re: How can I create a share link of a file in my 'Onedrive for business' with longer than 1 hr expiration?

Hi @sacheu 

I don't find this to be the case when I use the OneDrive for Business Create share link by path action. The link doesn't expire in my case, because I don't have an expiration set in the SharePoint Admin Center for anyone links. Perhaps there is a global expiration policy set in your tenant?

Although in any case I thought any expiration should be in terms of days, not hours. So your case sounds very unusual. I'm unsure where you're located and exactly how SharePoint/OneDrive calculates the expiration date of a link, but I wonder if your timezone could have anything to do with that (i.e. if 1 day = only 1 hour for you before it's the next UTC day) - just a thought, I haven't tested that theory.

Does this help you...?

Hi @sacheu,

 

I have tested on my side 3 hours ago, create a share link of Onedrive file and email it. 3 hours later, the URL of the Onedrive still could access, the following screenshot is how I configure it:

 Just like @SandyU said, there is no expire setting when you create the Share link in Flow, the default expiration is very long.

 

There is a post about the default expiration in OneDrive, hope it can help you:

I test it by going to 1 sample run of my MS flow, check the output of the 'create share link'. 
Then  I manually load that link after 1+ hr. I get this error message:
 
Sorry, something went wrong
The access token has expired. It's valid from '11/20/2019 5:01:11 AM' and to '11/20/2019 6:01:11 AM'.
