Filter flow based on HTTP data

Hi, I have a flow written that connects to a website that I manage via HTTP and a specific page I built for this purpose.  I've written that page to either output the data in XML or plaintext.  The flow then takes the data and publishes it to facebook and twitter.   I want the flow to check the output before it publishes, and if it contains a certain phrase, then cancel the flow.  

 

The flow works fine without this check.  Based on some forum posts I found, I added a "compose" step to grab the output of the HTTP Step.  I've tried numorous tests but always end up with "ActionFailed. An action failed. No dependent actions succeeded.

Bsasically I just want the flow to evaluate if "[[DO NOT PUBLISH]]" in the the HTTP output.  I've tried the obvious of if the Output of Compose "does not contain" '[[DO NOT PUBLISH]]' but I get the error above.

What is the right way to test for this condition?

Hi @DanMurphy ,

 

Could you share the action configuration and error message in Condition branch?

The error displayed by the Error message has nothing to do with the logic of Condition configuration. This is because the action in the branch fails.

Like:

The reason for the error is that Get item action failed, so a similar error message will be displayed.

Please check the run history and error message of action in branch, and try to reconfigure these actions based on these errors.

Thank you for your help.  While I was going back to get more details to answer your question, I realized the failure was in the DATA.  The output for the test case was "DO NOT POST" and I was checking for "DO NOT PUBLISH".

Thank you for your help, you did help me in narrowing down where the problem was.
