Filtering CAML query in Send HTTP Request

Hi all,


I'm using the Send an HTTP request to SharePoint action in my flow to collect an aggregate (AVG) from a SharePoint list.


I was wondering if there's any way to amend the CAML query to filter by View (or even better, the value of a particular column, e.g. a column called "Work Type" with a value called "OA Simulation").


This is what I have currently. I am not overly familiar with CAML queries but it was the best method to obtain the average from what I could find online.


I also copied the process off this video.

Hi @lizwharty,


If it helps I can share an example with you.


Lets say you have the list below with a view that is grouped by work type, totals avg on OA Simulation. And you are after the average values of OA simulation.



In that case you could use the following Body value:

"parameters": {       
          "OverrideViewXml":"<Query><GroupBy><FieldRef Name=\"WorkType\" Ascending=\"TRUE\" /></GroupBy></Query><ViewFields><FieldRef Name=\"LinkTitle\" /><FieldRef Name=\"WorkType\" /><FieldRef Name=\"OASimulation\" /></ViewFields><RowLimit Paged=\"TRUE\">30</RowLimit><Aggregations Value=\"On\"><FieldRef Name=\"OASimulation\" Type=\"AVG\" /></Aggregations><JSLink>clienttemplates.js</JSLink><XslLink Default=\"TRUE\">main.xsl</XslLink><Toolbar Type=\"Standard\"/></View>",




In your output you will see the avg values listed. 




Hope this helps a bit?
