SharePoint REST API - copy list item to multiple sites

Hello Cat Happy


I'm building a flow that triggers when a new item is added to the Events SharePoint list in one SharePoint site.
The Flow is supposed to copy this Event (item) to multiple sites.

There is no Copy item so I'm wondering if I can use the Send an HTTP Request to SharePoint using the REST API to copy item from one site to another site. 

I managed to get the item using the ID.


Flow - Get and Post itemFlow - Get and Post item

(I can't use the Create Item because the URL to the sites I'm going to copy the item to is coming from a list, so Flow doesn't understand which list I'm creating an item in - the columns isn't showing up.)


Appreciate any thoughts and answers!

Hi @Anonymous

Tbh, I think you could do both.

You say that create item depends on "the URL to the sites I'm going to copy the item to is coming from a list".

Couldn't you get these URL's from each list using the get item connector in advance, then move on to create each new list item having assigned the previous URL to a variable or using dynamic data to suit perhaps?


Please say thanks with thumbs up.

Any other questions, just ask.

Thanks, Alan

If I save the URL in a variable I still get the same error message. If this was what you meant I should do? 

Hi @Anonymous,


The you could "Enter custom value" to the List Name field of "Create item" action.

It seems like I'm not able to get the fields/columns, even though I write the list name as a custom value.
If i do it like that Flow will make an empty item in the Events calendar, with no info about timedate/location etc.
