Dynamic expressions in action fields

I've figured out how to do dynamic expressions in an action's field, but the way I'm doing it is not optimal. Example: I have a Flow that runs once a day and copies some data to Azure Blob. I want the blob to have a dynamic filename based on the date.

However... my blob name ends up with quotes in the name (e.g. "2017-02-01" instead of just 2017-02-01). If I do not put the quotes around the expression, it will not evaluate and my blob name will end up as @{utcnow('yyyy-MM-dd')}.

 

Can someone help me out here?

Hi @toddkitta,

 

Please take a try with compose action:

Then specify the Compose output value in the Blob name.

See if this would meet your requirements.
