Don't send email if the flow body is empty

Hi,

I have created a Flow to call the kusto function and email the kusto object as Bar chat. But I don't want to send an email if the kusto function return null or empyt. How to validate this. I have put the condition expression before sending email and try but didn't work as expected. Please let me know how to validate it. Any help will be appreciated.

Hi @Biswapati,

 

Which connector do you use in your “Run query and visual results” action?

I don’t find the connector on my Microsoft Flow, so I could not make a test on my side.

According to the screenshot that you provided, please take a try to type the following formula in Condition box:

@empty(body('Run_query_and_visualize_results'))

Best regards,

Kris

Thanks for reply,

The connector is "Kusto - Run query and visualize results ". I have tried the expression @empty(body('Run_query_and_visualize_results')). But it's always return false whether the "Kusto - Run query and visualize results" return data or not. I have tried follwoing option that didn't work for me :

@contains(body('Run_query_and_visualize_results')?['body'], 'com.microsoft')
empty(item()?['appId'])
@and(empty(item()?['appId']), empty(item()?['standardDeviationRate']))
@and(empty(item()?['appId']), empty(item()?['standardDeviationRate']))
@empty(body('Run_query_and_visualize_results')?['body'])
@equals(body('Run_query_and_visualize_results')?['body'], '')
@equals(body('Run_query_and_visualize_results'), '')
@contains(body('Run_query_and_visualize_results'), 'com.microsoft')
@empty(body('Run_query_and_visualize_results'))
@not(empty(body('Run_query_and_visualize_results')['body']))
@contains(coalesce(body('Run_query_and_visualize_results')['body'], ''), 'com.microsoft')
@empty(coalesce(body('Run_query_and_visualize_results')['body'], ''))

Run the flow and see the output by cliking on the "Search for users" action. Replace the 'Value' with the item that you are getting inside the Body as below (For your reference). I have used  'empty(body('Search_for_users')?['value'])'  and working for me. If it's not working then I am just the beginner of the flow. You can post your question in the group. Someone ight help you.

 

Example:

 

Body
{
  "value": []
}
