Copy documents between libraries with js pnp

Hi,

(I've tries Binging etc...)

 

 

Any?

Hi there,

It can be done with `copyTo` method. With pnp-core-js:

 

$pnp.sp.web
  .getFileByServerRelativeUrl('/sites/dev01/DocLib01/tttt/Development and Deployment Guidelines.pdf')
  .copyTo('/sites/dev01/DocLib03/Development and Deployment Guidelines.pdf', true)
  .then(function(res) { 
    console.log(res); 
  });

 

Which constructs POST request to the following REST endpoint:

 

/_api/web
  /getfilebyserverrelativeurl('[server relative url of the file to copy')
  /copyto(
strnewurl='[server reletive url where to copy, including file name]',
boverwrite=true)

Thanks!

 

A second question...is it possible to use pnp-core-js to copy file(s) to a doc lib in another sitecollection, too?

Hi Jon,

 

Nope, it doesn't seem to be possible with REST.

CopyTo method works within single SPWeb.

 

Though, it's possible to get a file's blob/buffer and metadata and create a new document in other SPSite/SPWeb using REST and pnp js core.
