Automatically create SQL table based on json results

I need to create an SQL table automatically, based on the results I get from HTTP API call.

How do I do this? Especially so that data types for columns are created automatically based on the json results?

Thank you!

Although it is one-time and manual, it really helps.

Hope Power Automate creates "Create SQL table" action soon!

Hi @michaelshparber ,

 

Sorry for I'm afraid that your requirement couldn't be achieved in Microsoft flow currently, since the function to create table to sql server is not supported in Microsoft flow currently.

 

Best Regards,

So how do you recommend me to approach this?

I have an API call that returns 150 columns.

I don't want to define one-by-one.

I am sure, you guys deal with creating SQL tables somehow...

Maybe a different tool?

I need to create it once, then I will use the flow to populate it.
