Email body to MVC application

I'm looking to automate the process of receiving an email with candidate information and presenting those details in an mvc application. The email is always in the same format as it is generated by a form online.


One approach I have tried is creating a flow to go from the email directly into the sql server. However, remote access is predictably disabled.


The other approach I have been trying is to parse the email body into JSON and then into blob storage. I could potentially then connect to the storage from the application.


Has anyone ever done anything like this? I feel this can be achieved with microsoft flow but at this stage I'm not sure how. Any help appreciated.

Hi @Anonymous,


I am afraid I have no Blob storage test environment here, so I have not done a similar complete experiment.

But depending on what you describe, the parts that can be implemented by Flow are roughly the following:

   1.Configure When an new email arrives as a trigger.

   2.Configure Dynamic content-Body output from the trigger in Parse JSON action.

   3.For Schema configuration, you could first output the Body of message and then configure it in "a sample JSON payload".

   4.Configure Create blob action to fill the Dynamic content output by Parse JSON in the corresponding field.
