Add url to body of e-mail in a flow

Sending e-mail from a flow triggered in Dynamics 365:

 

How does one grab the url to include it in the body of an outlook e-mail in the flow?

 

I was given a JSON command, but it doesn't work.  (Perhaps I'm not inserting it correctly?)  uriHost(body('Parse_JSON_to_get_execution_context')?['@odata.context'])

 

I also want to pull owner and account and include them in the e-mail, but blanks are returned.  How do I accomplish these?

Hi @Anonymous 

 

Could you post a screenshot of your flow?

 

uriHost() expression should give you the url. So it depends the data you are passing. 

 

To retrieve owner you need Get Record by Id step. Here you need to pass the id of owner from your trigger. The entity you need to configure for this step is users.

 

To retrieve Account you need Get Record by Id step. Here you need to pass the id of Account from your trigger. The entity you need to configure for this step is Accounts.

 

Thanks

Hi,

Thanks for your interest.  Here are the pertinent parts of the flow:

I don't quite understand your comments about "Id step".  Are you saying I need to link to the Accounts and User entities to properly grab account name and owner?

Above is that added as an expression? Check the run history and see the results.

 

Yes for the Account and Owner you need another two action steps Get Record. Set the identifier (account/owner) from the previous step.

uriHost(body('Parse_JSON_to_get_execution_context')?['@mcdonald.com'])

Hi @Anonymous 

 

Check this in a compose statement and see what value you are getting via execution history.

 

body('Parse_JSON_to_get_execution_context')?['@mcdonald.com']

 

Also post your JSON body content.

 

Thanks

What is '@mcdonald.com', is it an item that exists in JSON?

If you specify '@odata.context' from your base post, I don't think you'll get an error.

That's my misunderstanding of what to do with this.

I have this workaround, using JSON... but I can't make heads or tails of it:
