I have a requirement to copy modified files from SharePoint to shared network path. When i execute this using Power automate in a loop, first file content is being used for other files and leading to wrong file creation. I have tried to add delay in loop and reset file identifier string but still same issue is observed.This behavior is inconsistent, sometime it works fine.

Please let me know how to handle this issue. Thanks in advance

  • Are the files are in a Library or in a List as Attachments? Within your loop, are you fetching each file's content by using [Get file content] and passing [identifer]? I've not noticed this issue though. If you can post your flow, I can take a look into it. Mar 27, 2021 at 18:29
  • I am performing this on Library. I have posted same query along with image on below link powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Using-Flows/… Mar 29, 2021 at 5:15
  • Logically, not seeing any issue. Can you check [Identifier] and [File Name with Path] in the flow running history? Do they look different in the [Apply to each]? Another thing, you may not need [Parse JSON] action here, you could directly use [Value] from [Get file (properties only)] in [Apply to each]. Mar 29, 2021 at 12:25
