Access to shared Sharepoint folder

I have access to a shared Sharepoint folder. I can modify files in it using the browser.

 

However, if I try to do this via a flow, I can't seem to access it without having root site access. I only have access to a folder within the Sharepoint site.

 

I'm now using the flow step "Sharepoint, create file" with the site address:

https://mycompany.sharepoint.com/sites/org-1234

 

The shared folder in which I want to create a file has the following address:

 

https://mycompany.sharepoint.com/sites/org-1234/Shared%20document2/Forms/AllItems.aspx?<snip>....

 

How can I do this? Maybe I should use an other flow step?

Hi @marcvb,

Do you mean that you could not access to root site when you create file?

 

Actually, it is by design that you could not access to the root site if you are shared with a folder only.

You don't have permission to access to the root site so that you could not create file.

 

As an alternative solution, you could ask your admin to share the whole documents with you or ask your admin to create file.
