Update a SharePoint custom field property with a HTTP REquest

Hi,

 

I need to update a custom field property on en existing folder in SharePoint. I use an HTTP Request action for that but I cannot find the right parameter for the REST call:

 

2019-09-02 20_08_06-Edit your flow _ Microsoft Flow.png

I cannot use the "Update item" trigger since I already have another trigger (MS Forms).

 

Can anyone help me to find the correct parameters for this HTTP Request action?

 

Thank you!

Fab

Hi @Fab2000,

 

You can use the Get Files (properties only) action, the Filter array to find the folder named your Destination folder's name.

Then add the Apply to each to put the output of the filter, use the item()?['ID'] to get the ID of the folder.

Hi @Fab2000,

 

It may have some error with the Body, it should be "__metadata" : { "type": "SP.Data.LibraryNameItem"}.

About how to work with a folder with Http request, you could refer to this document:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/dev/sp-add-ins/working-with-folders-and-files-with-rest#...

 

And there is some easier way to do with this, you can use the Update file properties action.

Hi, 

 

Thank you for the prompt reply. 

 

  1. In my scenario, I don't have the folder ID since it is created automatically when the flow creates a Teams channel. Is there a way to grab the folder ID based on the folder name?
  2. If there is no way to find the folder ID, I'll try the HTTP Request. In the example you gave, how can I find the "real" odata.type to be used in the Body?

Thank you,

Fab
