Is it possible to copy an attachment on a list item to a document library within the same site using SPD workflows and the REST api?

I have tried using the copyto function, but I cannot get it to work.

I have the relative url of the attachment itself (using another REST call).

All other solutions is off the table, I cannot use any 3rd party solutions or scripting or anything.

  • @EricAlexander Unfortunately not :-( The target of that post is to upload the attachment to the list item itself, not to upload it to a document library (Which is seperate to the list) - at least that's how I read the article.

Sometimes getting away and coming back wth fresh eyes is a good thing. I have made it work using the copyto function.


I still have an issue to fix though, the file get corrupted and cannot open (Happens on xlsx and docx files - but not txt files) - but that should be possible to fix I'm pretty sure!

  • Oh scratch that last comment as well. It seem everything now works perfectly.
