Automating the downloading of PDF files from an external site and saving in a SharePoint document library.

  • 1.  Automating the downloading of PDF files from an external site and saving in a SharePoint document library.

    Posted Aug 19, 2021 10:09 AM
    Hello, trying to connect to an external site, do have login credentials, https://extranet.SiteName.com/food/Pages/rRecipes.aspx and download the PDF files from this site.  Want these PDF's to be downloaded to a SharePoint document library.  Would like the download process to run on an interval time.  It would be great to download all of the PDF's the first time it runs and then only download new or changed PDF's since the last run and over write the PDF if it exist in the SPO document library.

    I have tried a number of different steps working with the FTP & HTTP actions and I cannot get access to the page with the PDF's let alone being able to download them.  I would like to get it working using the standard actions in Power Automate, though if a premium action is required that is fine.

    Thanks in advance for your assistance.

    Kind regards,

    Hello. You will need to use a gateway to access that on-premises SharePoint site.
