Automate auto tag of new Yammer post with Flow

Hi all

 

I have a case, where I want to add a topic to each new message in a specific Yammer group. As it is not possible even using the Yammer API to edit messages, the only way to achive adding a topic to a message is posting a comment to that specific message. This part of my flow works perfectly fine, that is,

  • When there is a new message
  • Service user triggers flow, and post a reply to the message with a topic
  • Delte the reply, so only the topic is left back

In this way I achieve what I want.

 

Now, using the Flow action "When there is a new message in a group", apperently applys to each message/post and comment. So if someone comments on a message, the flow is also triggered. This, I dont want to. It only must be triggered when there is a brand new message and not a reply/comment to a message. My flow looks like this:

 

When there is a new message in a group -> Post message (reply to the initial message) -> Call Yammer API using HTTP action and delete the reply.

Is it in any way possible to create the flow, so it is only triggerende on new messages/posts and not comments. 

 

 

Thanks

Hi @emuja,

 

Thanks for feedback.

It seems that Flow is currently not possible to distinguish between a new post or a reply/comment on yammer.
