Condition not working ( matched against managed metadata)

Hi

 

I have a list that acts sort of like a mini CRM- managers update a lead status so when it becomes an offer I need to automatically create a matching folder in Sharepoint to save related documents. I am trying to build a flow that will identify the industry practice in which the offer was made ( we call this column 'vertical' and it's a managed metadata column:

So my flow looks for a new record in the list with a value of 'Industry and Defense' , which is one of the possible verticals. 

if it matches the condition I would like to at first get an indication for that so I started with simply sending an email.

The problem is the flow never passes this condition. it doesn't recognize the vertical as 'Industry and Defense'. I also tried matching to  'vertical value; in the dynamic content. still no luck

This is althogh I have to proposals with vertical Industry and defense

What am I doing wrong? Does this have something to do with the fact that Im using a managed metadata column in my condition?

I used compose to check all three values: Vertical, vertical value and vertical label

it seems that vertical value is the term I should use in my condition and it still returns false for the condition... 

Hi @Gali ,

 

Based on the link, please try label.

 

If you want to use value, you will need to extract the value out or use contains.

Hi @Gali ,

 

Please check the spelling of Defense/Defence in your condition.
