Moving Folders Cross-Site

by Jeff Childers. » Wed Nov 12, 2014 2:59 pm

I have a document folder named “oldfolder” located at documents/oldfolder.
I want to move old folder to and name the new folder “newfolder”.
Thus, it should eventually be located at
So I have created a move folder from library action with the following settings:
Site Url – blank
ThrowError – Yes
Source Folder URL – documents/oldfolder
Target Library URL –
Target Path in list – /newfolder
login info is added correctly
Now, I have successfully transferred folders within the same site collection. After doing so, I simply changed the Target library URL to one in a different site collection. So the only error here could be associated with the cross site move.
When run, I get the following error: Exception: Invalid URL: /.
So, what am I doing wrong.

Hi Jeff,

We were able to reproduce the issue. We fixed it and now it has to work as expected. Please try to run your workflow again.

Please let me know about the results.
