Compare SharePoint "HTTP Request"-Body and Filter

Hi all,

 

I want to notify the creator of a SharePoint List item when someone else is editing the item.
Additionally it should be shown which attribute has been changed.

So far, I'm using "http-Request" to get all versions of the affected item.
My problem:
How do I filter out the individual versions and how can I compare them with each other?

 

This is my http-request:

Thats what comes out(i deleted some private attributes...):

 

{
  "value": [
    {
      "Created": "2019-08-07T11:44:23",
      "IsCurrentVersion": true,
      "VersionId": 3584,
      "VersionLabel": "7.0",
      "ContentTypeId": {
        "StringValue": "0x01008AAB5C1AF65CFE439CA15ADE66F0FEC1"
      },
      "Title": "Test-Ticket",
      "OData__x005f_ModerationComments": null,
      "File_x005f_x0020_x005f_Type": null,
      "ComplianceAssetId": null,
      "Art": "Ticket",
      "Beschreibung": "<p>ZWEITER TEST<br></p>",
      "OData__x005f_HasCopyDestinations": null,
    },
    {
      "Created": "2019-08-06T14:50:15",
      "IsCurrentVersion": false,
      "VersionId": 3072,
      "VersionLabel": "6.0",
      "ContentTypeId": {
        "StringValue": "0x01008AAB5C1AF65CFE439CA15ADE66F0FEC1"
      },
      "Title": "Test-Ticket",
      "OData__x005f_ModerationComments": null,
      "File_x005f_x0020_x005f_Type": null,
      "ComplianceAssetId": null,
      "Art": "Ticket",
      "Beschreibung": "<p>Dies ist ein Test</p>",
    },
  ]
}

According to my understanding I have to split the "body" and insert it into an array with a foreach loop.
There I should be able to compare the different array columns with each other and highlight differences.

But How?

 

Thanks!

Leon

Re: Compare SharePoint "HTTP Request"-Body and Filter

 

Hi @Lon ,

 

HTTP request action returns the data for all versions of the specified item as an array.

The data contained in each version is stored in every element of the array.

And sort by the version number, for example, the element whose index is 0 is stored in the latest version of the item.

Index is 1 is the data of the previous version.

 

For example, if you want to compare the latest version of Beschreibung with the previous version, you could refer to the following Expression.

Current version

body('HTTP')['d']['results'][0]['Beschreibung']

Previous version

body('HTTP')['d']['results'][1]['Beschreibung']

Besides, please check this blog and get more details about the version of the item:
