How can you send an email if a sharepoint folder has been shared please?

Hi, 

  A company sharepoint shares different subfolders with external users for invoicing purposes, a folder per company invoiced with that company. Is there a way Flow can automatically check for new sharing additions to the folder and send an email to the non-tech team leaders. They are trying to avoid a share of company X with company Y or with internal users who should not have access and is for a quick fix over the weekend.

 

TIA

Hi @skillsy 

 

Currently the SharePoint connector in Power Automate does not support a trigger for when a file or folder is shared with another user and so it is not directly doable. However, you can setup a recurrence flow that runs on a schedule and have an action using the SharePoint Send HTTP request to get details of users or groups that have access to a specific file or folder. 

 

Hope this Helps!

Dear @yashag2255 , can you tell in a bit more detail how that HTTP Request for getting users or groups with access to specific folders in Sharepoint can be setup? Thank you so much in advance.
