Filtering taxonomy

Hi 

 

I'm stuck and Google has not been my friend in need this time.

 

I want to filter a get item from a sharepoint doc library on a metadata field with values from the taxonomy word set, but trail and error always ends up with error.

 

Isn't it possible to filter on managed metadata?

 

This should work in my book

 

Kategori eq 'Timeregnskaber Tilsyn', "Kategori" being the column name and "Timeregnskaber Tilsyn" being the value. The value is actually "Løn og Kørsel:Timeregnskaber Tilsyn" because the value I use is a sub of another value.

 

Any other work arounds because my flow is taking forever to fiddle through all items in the list.

Re: Filtering taxonomy

Hi @Kvist80 ,

 

Are you using Filter query of SharePoint action Get items?

 

I am afraid that not all the column types are supported in Filter query, such as Choice column, Lookup column.

 

Per my certain test, Managed metadata column is also not supported currently. If you need this feature, please feel free submit your request on Flow Ideas Forum:

Further, a workaround for this issue is adding a Condition. Then use the dynamic content of Managed metadata label to check if it equal to the specific value.

Note: the returned value of Managed metadata column is of type String.
