Support for Ultra Pipelines
Works in Ultra Pipelines.
Snaps in the Microsoft OneDrive Snap Pack have an in-built retry mechanism for failing connections and requests; but, a high volume of requests from a client might reach the throttling threshold. In such scenarios, the Microsoft Graph limits further requests from that client for a period of time and returns an HTTP status code 429 (Too many requests), thereby causing the requests to fail. Hence, we recommend you to keep a check on the number of requests emanating from your client instance.

|Parameter Name||Data Type||Description||Default Value||Example |
Specify a name for the Snap. You can modify this to be more specific, especially if you have more than one of the same Snap in your Pipeline.
|Get Children||Get Children|
|Drive Type||Drop-down list|
Required. Select a drive type from the following list of permitted drive types in this drop-down list (to retrieve the list of sub-folders and files in the location) and specify the corresponding details needed:
- OneDrive. To retrieve the list of sub-folders and files in a driveItem in a OneDrive location. Requires User, Drive, and Source Relative Path/ID.
- documentLibrary. To retrieve the list of sub-folders and files in a shared library (document library) location. Requires Shared Library, Drive, and Source Relative Path/ID.
- Drive. To retrieve the list of sub-folders and files in a drive (in user's OneDrive or shared library) using the Drive ID. Requires Drive (ID) and Source Relative Path/ID.
- All. To select a drive from the list of all drives and shared libraries (including SharePoint sites) that you can access, and retrieve the list of sub-folders and files in that location. Requires User, Drive, and Source Relative Path/ID.
Required for Drive Type options - OneDrive and All. Not needed for Drive and documentLibrary.
Select a user from the suggested list of users to retrieve the list of sub-folders and files from that user's OneDrive location.
The list of users displayed varies based on your access to their OneDrive locations. This option is meant for administrator users who are authorized to manage other users' drives, as well.
Required for Drive Type option - documentLibrary. Not needed for OneDrive, Drive, and All.
Select a Shared Library from the suggested list of libraries to retrieve the list of sub-folders and files from that library location.
The list of shared libraries displayed varies based on your access to them. This option is meant for users who have write access on both the source and target shared libraries.
Required for all Drive Type options.
Specify the name of the drive to retrieve the list of sub-folders and files in a location inside the drive. The suggestions for this field are based on the Snap account and the User or Shared Library selected.
For the Drive Type Drive, specify/pass the ID of the drive to retrieve the list of sub-folders and files in it, typically from the upstream Snap.
For the drive type All, select a drive from the OneDrive or a Shared Library drive.
Specify the Source Relative Path/ID of the driveItem, next.
|Source Relative Path/ID||String/Expression|
Required for all Drive Type options.
Enter the relative path for the driveItem, beginning with root:/, to retrieve the list of sub-folders and files in it. Alternatively, pass the item ID in this field.
Relative Path and ID
- Any URL in this field that starts with root:/ is treated as relative path. All other entries (without root:/ at the beginning) are treated as driveItem IDs.
- When the driveItem ID passed is invalid (not a 34-character alphanumeric code such as 014ZXBQNNHW2DJ3CDKQZBJHRYWFWVRRQA2), the Snap returns the error - The resource is not found.
Enter the list of different parameters, separated by a comma, that you want to retrieve for each child item in the selected driveItem.
The Snap returns all the available information on the selected driveItem, if this field is left blank.
|N/A||id, email, roles|
|Number Of Retries||String/Expression||Specify an integer value to set the maximum number of reconnection attempts that the Snap must perform, in case of connection failure or timeout.||0||3|
|Retry Interval (Seconds)||String/Expression||Enter, in seconds, the duration for which the Snap must wait between two reconnection attempts, until the number of retries is reached.||1||2|
|Snap Execution||Drop-down list|
Select one of the three following modes in which the Snap executes:
|Validate & Execute||Execute only|
Working with Drives and Drive Items using this Snap Pack
This Pipeline demonstrates how you can retrieve information about drives, driveItems and a recursive list of children items under a given driveItem. It assumes that you have configured your Azure application and the Snap accounts already. The Pipeline uses the following parameters.
We start with the Get Drive Snap to collect information about a particular drive followed by a Get Drive Item Snap to get the details of one of these driveItems.
We pass the Drive ID to this Snap to gather the relative path/ID of the driveItem we want to view the details of.
We, then, use a Mapper Snap to capture the Drive ID of these driveItems and pass it to the Get Children Snap to retrieve the recursive list of all children items under the relative path/ID provided.
