Whenever I recommend to use the send HTTP request to SharePoint action in Microsoft Flow I find that a lot of Flow users struggle with the technical level of this actions. In this series of posts I will go through all the API calls available within the SharePoint REST API for SharePoint Online. For all the API calls available Flow examples are included, the examples are maybe not flow optimized as I wanted to makes it as easy as possible for non developers to understand how to setup these flows.

The SharePoint REST API offers operations for:

  • Sites ( Webs)
  • Lists
  • List Items
  • Folders
  • Files

Additionally, the REST API also includes:

  • ODate query operations
  • SharePoint Data Structure
  • Item Synchronisation
  • Permissions
  • Batch requests

It would be impossible to write about all of these above in a single post. Therefore this post will serve as an index to many posts to come soon.
