    So I know this probably isn't the correct discussion forum to get this answer, but it's worth a shot to see if there is someone out there that can help me. I am trying to create a Flow that downloads a CSV for me automatically. However, the website I am trying to download from does not have a direct API to the CSV, and it requires you to enter a username and password to the website. What I do have is the direct URL to download the CSV. These are the steps I need to take:

    • Do an HTTP Get to the download URL
    • It will redirect to the account login form
    • I need the flow to login with my credentials and redirect back to the download.

    After that, the file will be in the body of the HTTP request and I can use the CSV in the flow. I just don't know how to build this flow so that it logs into the website and then retrieves the file. If someone could help that would be awesome because this flow will end up being a game-changer for our CRM.

    @Jordan Visina - A couple of suggestions:

    First, have you tried creating a custom connector within Flow to get to the data? https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/connectors/custom-connectors/define-blank

    Second, you might want to check out the Flow User Group and post your question there. https://www.flowug.com/home
