unable to copy files from folder to another library dynamically

Hello Everyone,

I am trying to copy folder and also all file inside the folder when the folder associated column called "Factory" is to a specific name. 

Based up on this name it will get the site URL dynamically and then it will create folder. Until this it is working fine. But I am not able to copy files at all. I don't see right action for this to do dynamically using https request.  Please let me know the best way to achieve this. 

 

Steps so far achieved: 

1. when a new item is created or modified (Library A)

2. condition: is folder = Yes

3. Get items (list B) - filter= Title eq 'FactoryNameColumnValue'

4. Compose  -- FolderName (this is from library)

5. send http request to create folder

Hi @Anonymous 

 

Thanks for the discussion.

 

You don't need the HTTP request to create folder. There is already a create new folder action step available. 

 

Once the folder is created then use the Get Files properties. Then iterate each files and copy file from destination to target.

You can't reply on that trigger mainly if user takes long time to upload  a file you will miss that file to upload. I would add a column called 'Ready to copy' Yes/No type then use the trigger to item modified 'Ready to copy' Yes.

@abm . Awesome. Thanks for your help. One of the my major issue is now fixed.  

 

Now because my choice column is in drop-down, it is not allowing for multiple selection so I have to change it to checkbox so that we can select multiple names. But the issue how flow can determine each name from checkbox and copy files to each of that selected name(Based up on the name it should select URL to copy content)?
