Create Folder in netdocuments is a premium connector available. Please check your licensing before utilizing this Connector.

 Step 6 : Create folder 

Every workspace under netdocuments have a Parent ID associated.7.PNG

In order to perform query without caring about the namespace, you can use local-name().

Step 7 : Compose Action8.PNG

Step 8 : We need to get ID from the XML. 

Formula Used: 

xpath(xml(outputs('XML')),'string(//*[local-name()="ndProfile.DocumentInformation"]/*[local-name()="standardAttributes"]/*[local-name()="id"]/text())')

Step 9 : Create document in Netdocuments where Destination is the output of Compose 2 Action which would give us the Destination ID.

Save the Flow and run. If it is a success it should create a folder in Netdocuments and move document uploaded in SharePoint document library to that folder.
