I have a flow that creates a file in a Sharepoint document library on the press of a button. I am trying to test it, but it only can create files that are one folder deep in the document library. Whenever I try to create a file that would be two folders or more deep in the Sharepoint library, it sends back a BadGateway Error. This is what I am attempting to do:
And this is the error message that it spits back to me:
"message": "The file or folder name \"Administration/IT/Dropbox Test /elmo\" contains invalid characters. Please use a different name. Common invalid characters include the following: # % * : < > ? / |\r\nclientRequestId: 878fb54f-e4f4-47e6-ad9e-bca6afc1db7b\r\nserviceRequestId: 3401979e-7020-6000-d5cf-41c7a2e381d5;3401979e-102e-6000-d5cf-4a5aa3536326",
For some reason, it seems to be replacing the second folder "/test" with a "\", which then produces an invalid character error. I have replicated this issue with numerous folder names, I have never run into this issue with creating files before, so any help on how to solve this would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you for your response, but I don't think that is the issue. I am able to create files directly in the document library ("Dropbox Test") as well as within one subfolder. The error only happens when I am 2+ subfolders deep.
I also tested this on a document library with no spaces in the name, and the error still occurred.
Could you please share a full screenshot of the configuration of your flow?
I did the test on my side, there is no special configuration, it is filled according to the requirements of filed, Folder path is also 2+ subfolders deep.
But there is no problem you mentioned.
I noticed that the error code is shown as 502. Since you have no such problem about creating files before, I wonder that the failure may be temporary or transient.
Please click or tap Resubmit to try the flow again and feel free let me know if issue still exist.
I seem to have the same issue, and though the flow works fine for some of our users, I noticed it fails intermittently when creating a file in sharepoint for others. From what I have investigated, it seems to be tied to the type of keyboard used. Is there a way I can specify the type of keyboards used to trigger the flow?
