cannot make subfolder in file-system (on-premise)

Hi all,

 

To get to know the file-system connector of microsoft flow, I have created a simple flow. I have the on premise gateway setup correctly working on my local system. 

The flow is working perfect, files are stored on my local file-system. 

 

Except it throws an error when I want to create a subfolder. 

The requested action could not be completed. Check your request parameters to make sure the path "\\\\share\\Dexxx\\xcache\\testweb/testfile.txt' exists on your file system.\r\nclientRequestId: 86fc2ab1-5ab1-458a-9494-6847ec343864"
 
I have tried to get it to work with network shares, but also with the local disk C:\Users\xxx\Desktop\test
The requested action could not be completed. Check your request parameters to make sure the path "C:\\Users\\xxx\\Desktop\\test/testfile.txt' exists on your file system.\r\nclientRequestId: f1ca1f45-0ea6-4552-9317-13d7b6e11803"
 
In both experiments the last folder is a folder that needs to be created. 
When I try to store textfile.txt in an existing folder it is working. 
 
I have another flow working that uses Onedrive for Business. When I add a folder to the path and this folder doesn't exist, the flow will create this folder. 
 
Is it possible to have the connector file-system create subfolders and if this connector doesn't support this is there a workaround?

Hi @mediatn,

 

The file system connector support to adds a doesn't exist folder to the path, you can test like this:Annotation 2019-08-19 153244.png

Hi @v-litu-msft ,

 

I thought it was a good shot and tried it a minute ago. 

 

C:\Users\userx\Desktop -> working
C:\Users\userx\Desktop\Subfolder -> not working

 

The error I am getting is:

"The requested action could not be completed. Check your request parameters to make sure the path 'C:\\Users\\userx\\Desktop\\Subfolder/testfile.txt' exists on your file system.\r\nclientRequestId: 75398459-0d05-489b-9155-bbfc50a387de"
 
Do you have any clue?

Hi @mediatn 

 

Try connecting the filesystem connector username with your domainname\username. 

 

Thanks

Hi @abm & @v-litu-msft ,

 

I have logged in with domain\username

I already found out if I don't log in with domain\username (so including domain\ ) I wasn't able to browse the folders using the picker in create file -> (field) Folder path.
The login should be as needs to be. 

Let me show a screenshot:

I "found" the path using the picker in the field 'Folder path' and added '\Subfolder'

When executing this flow. It gives an error on Create File (connector file-system)

And a screenshot of the error:

"The requested action could not be completed. Check your request parameters to make sure the path 'C:\\Documents and Settings\\Userxxx\\Desktop\\Subfolder/testfile.txt' exists on your file system.\r\nclientRequestId: cb13f92f-fb82-4100-a913-4132579ca631"

I hope this does ring a bell to somebody. I don't know where to look. 
I have added a slash at the back of the path, to try -> not working. I even changed the slashes to forward slashes ( I thought, you'll never know) -> not working. 

Thanks in advance for your reply.

 

Hi @mediatn,

 

The error message shows that the path doesn't exist in your file system, so you may need to create a new File system connection that root path contains your target file path, for example:Annotation 2019-08-20 093341.png

Please have a try, I hope it can help you.
