Recent changes to the driveItem: copy method of the API?

Lee Caine 26 Reputation points

Hi there,

Can someone tell me if there have been recent changes to the copy method of the Graph API, as I had code that was working up until today. ( I can't see anything in the change logs )

My code was using the copy endpoint to copy a template folder to another location sending a parentReference ( with id and driveId like it says in the docs ) after much playing around I found that by passing the path in parentReference as well made it work again. I tried with several ids with no luck until I passed the path as well?

Any help would be much appreciated.

    @SrinivasaRaoDarnaMSFT-7657 If in case, any change to the request body. Would suggest, it would be good if your team could post the change officially before it gets released to the public. If any failure, we can read through the API documentation for changes. It will avoid a lot of confusion and time. Thanks.
