Copy/Paste Actions inside Switch Condition

Hi All,

 

I am trying to duplicate an action that is under one Switch Case to all other cases. However, when i copy to clipboard and try to select the action from "My Clipboard", it gives me the following error message - "Failed to find SWITCH"CASE in definition". I can move the actions between cases, but i'd like to replicate the actions. It does not matter which Case I pick, the error message is the same, just the Case number changes.

 

Has anyone come across this issue before? or is aware of a potential solution?

 

Thanks.

Hi @silpiaskz 

 

The copy actions to clip board and paste is a preview feature and currently there are a couple of issues including the switch case action control. 

 

You can raise it as a bug here: https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/I-Found-A-Bug/bd-p/BugFound

 

This should be fixed in the upcoming releases. 

 

Hope this Helps!

Hi @silpiaskz 

 

This seems to be a bug

same case for me

 

reason is because the definition of the copied action is different when used inside switch case

As a workaround you can place your copied activity somewhere near to switch case block but mind that out side the block . then you can drag that inside switch block smoothly without any error 

 

I have figured out a workaround even when dealing with controls. It can be very useful when you have a lot of cases on your switch. 

 

1. Create a parallel branch above your control

2. Create a scope under the parallel branch

3. Within the scope create the entire process you want for the case

4. Copy your scope to clipboard

5. Paste a new scope under the parallel branch as well

6. Drag your duplicate scope into the desired case

7. Update small changes accordingly per case

8. Rinse Repeatimage.png

best answer..thanks!

This is hilarious! Probably MS thought this way but didn't  broadcast the message to the end users and hence their feature became bug! Alas!

Hi, 

 

I encountered the same issue with Switch Case and the work around trick I did is, Every time I Update the item eq. Task Status from what is inputted in Post Adaptive Card with response, I will copy exactly the same case name as encircled with red in the expression below But not on the other cases which has a different Case Name.
