Converting Option Set Values to Labels using Dataverse

Hello!

 

I found this article about getting the label of an option set value, but it's all referring to the old CDS rather than Dataverse so I'm hoping to get an updated answer. 

 

In my flow, when a Lead is created, I'd like to send an email containing the labels from an option set in the Lead. 

 

Thanks in advance!

Hi, @thecharwest 

 

I think the following would work. I have used the same example used in your link to show a before and after.

 

Before: Triggeroutputs()?['body/_leadqualitycode_label']

After: Triggeroutputs()?['body/leadqualitycode@OData.Community.Display.V1.FormattedValue]

Hiya @Gaznae

 

I tried this with my field which is called "samar_websitefieldisoqarstandards" and put in an expression like this:

 

triggerOutputs()?['body/samar_websitefieldisoqarstandards@OData.Community.Display.V1.FormattedValue']

 

It lets me add this to a Compose stage, but when I add that to an email, even if the field contains data, it comes back blank in the email. Am I missing a step somewhere?

 

I ended up following this guide: https://linnzawwin.blogspot.com/2020/07/get-lookup-display-name-and-option-set.html

 

Thanks for your help so far.

Hi, @thecharwest 

 

You will need to change triggerOutputs() to the output of the action where this field is present. For example, body('Create Lead')?
