Copying flow - options not showing up

 

 

I am to create a flow from scratch by copying an existing flow. There is an action that I am unable to replicate. It looks like this: 2018-09-05_14-48-02.pngWhen I try to enter a value these options do not show up for me. Does anyone know how to get these to populate? All of my options have the same icon in purple but only Body, Table item entity, and Output are my options.

Re: Copying flow - options not showing up

Hi @helpmewithflow,

 

I did a test later and found that it is actually written with Expression. The reason why it is displayed is different from the existing flow, because you need to save the flow first, then refresh the page, or re-open the flow, the display is the same.

 

But essentially it is still expression.

 

You could place the mouse over the corresponding Value, see what its expression is, then type it into your own expression, then click ok.

 

Although it shows the Fx icon style at the beginning, after you save the configuration, refresh or re-open the flow, the display will be the same as the existing flow, shown as below:

Please take a try and let me know if issue still exist.

 

Best Regards,

Barry

Re: Copying flow - options not showing up

Hi @helpmewithflow,

 

Could you please share a full screenshot of the configuration of your flow?

 

You could use Expression when you enter value. Use item()?['Coulumn'] in Expression, such as item()?['Visit_x0020_Type'] to get the value of the corresponding column.

I would be helpful if you posted more details of your flow and we would try to provide a proper workaround for you.

 

Best Regards,

Barry

Hi @v-bacao-msft thanks for your response. 

 

When I use that expression it does not appear the same way as the existing flow. I have copied the entire flow. Thanks again in advance.

Thanks @v-bacao-msft. That was definitely the problem. I can't believe I didn't think of that. It works as needed now. 🙂
