When a file is created (properties only) triggers against temp file before upload is complete

My flow is supposed to move files after they are uploaded with the Graph API, but this flow runs against the "~tmp" file instead.  It would make more sense if the file was "created" when it was actually fully uploaded.

Hi @pheil,


Could you please share ascreenshot of the configuration of your flow?

Could you please share more details about the temp file that you mentioned?


Please share more details so we would try to provide a proper workaround for you.


Best regards,


I created this because I need my files on my Sharepoint site to have the "EWS" tag so that they can be filtered by my PowerApp.  The flow on a rare occasion will run correctly for a single file if a lot of files are uploaded at once.   Seems like it might be based on how often it checks for changes.  It doesn't look like there is anything else helpful in the run history, but I can provide it if needed

Additional image of some sample files loaded into a different directory.  The tmp files disappear when they are done uploading.


@v-yuazh-msft  Is a work around available now? 🙂


I have a similar (but simpler) usecase but the exact problem.  PFA Sshots. the file link sent in the email is the ~tmp link

which obviously doesn't redirect to the final created file.  Except for one of the 4 files created (Which I assume is created fully by the time Flow triggers that one)



How I'm using it - I'm syncing files from a remote server to my sp site using Rclone. On a new file created in sp, I need to send an email with the file's actual link.
