Power Automate (Flow) integration
Applies to JungleDocs for Office 365.
JungleDocs for Office 365 is compatible with Power Automate (previously Microsoft Flow), further increasing the scope of available document automation. While we are working to make our product integrated into Power Automate by default, you can also do it manually.
Enable JungleDocs for Office 365 in Power Automate
1. First, you will need a personal API key. To obtain it, go to SharePoint site contents and open JungleDocs for Office 365.
2. Once in the app, click Settings > Flow Integration.
3. In the window that opens, you can find existing personal API keys and create a new one. If it's your first time connecting the app with Power Automate or you're a new user, click Create new personal API key and copy the new key for later use.

1. Sign in to your Power Automate account and click Settings > Custom Connectors.

3. To locate the app faster, type in JungleDocs in the search field. Along with the app, you will see the available action list.
4. Select an action, for example, Execute New-From Existing Rule (it will create new document from the item which was created in the list).
5. in the Site Address field, paste the URL of the source list (in the example it is Companies) and select the JungleDocs rule to execute (the rule should be already configured in the source list).
6. Save and test the new flow.
Notes related to API keys
- API keys are personal. Users and administrators can see only their own API keys. If the key doesn’t belong to your account, it will be shown stripped.
- API key scope is global (i.e., for all site collections).
- It is possible to define who can view, create and manage API keys in permission roles.
- Only administrators can delete/disable API keys created by other users. Users with permission to manage API keys can only disable or delete their own keys.
- API owner should have a JungleDocs for Office 365 license, too. Otherwise, Power Automate actions connected to the key will not work.
Notes related to Power Automate integration
- By default, flow action execution time is limited to 10 minutes. If the limit is exceeded, flow execution will be aborted. Contact us if you need to adjust this setting.
- By default, there can be no more than 10 rules running at the same time per user. Contact us if you need to adjust this setting.
- Flow actions may display errors when used for the first time. This is due to internal Power Automate action provisioning. In this happens, wait for 5 minutes or up to one hour, and the actions should resume working normally.
