Sharepoint Copy file action removes + sign

Hi,

 

if I pass the following string as the path for the "file to copy" property on the copy file sharepoint action in flow like so:

 

"/account/xx/xx+_AE771997370DEB11A813000D3AB6E3D6/xx.pdf".

 

it removes the + from the file path and consequently can't find the file in sharepoint.

 

 

Failed to verify the existence of source object at 'https://xx.sharepoint.com/sites/xx/account/xx/xx_AE771997370DEB11A813000D3AB6E3D6/xx.pdf' due to error 'The system cannot find the file specified. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070002)'.
clientRequestId: 712eca42-f169-46fb-945e-fc49ba907cd2
serviceRequestId: 712eca42-f169-46fb-945e-fc49ba907cd2

 

 

I found this thread that says the issue has been fixed - this is not the case for us.

 

Kind regards,

Thomas

It has been a month and Microsoft has not even responded to the issue.

I am experiencing the exact same issue. MS claims to have fixed it in September 2020 (see Copying sharepoint files with a + symbol in them but that does not seem to be the case or the bug has reappeared.

Hi @thomas_schick ,

I also had the same issue with move folder action of sharepoint. Did this issue resolved for you? If not then you can try by giving identifier instead of folder name. I did solved this issue by using this trick.

Hope it will help you also.
