Get output from apply to each

Hi All,

 

I've reached the following "blocker" in my project.

 

I have applied to each step which collects start and end dates from a calendar.

I'm trying now to pass these parameters to PVA (Power Virtual Agent)

However, i cannot refer to the values of applying to each, but only to the Current Item.

So my idea here is te following

For each of the results here:

Radoslavov_0-1608637622394.png

To get the outputs for Start and End time steps,

in my case, these will be a list of a total of 18 rows in the format Start Time xxxxx - End Time xxxxxxxx

Inside the Apply to each, I cannot use Initialize Variable so the must be something else to get these 18 outputs.

Any suggestions?

 

Regards

Kiril

Hi @Radoslavov ,

 

It should be outputs('Composed_time') .

 

Thanks

Hi @Radoslavov ,

 

The unique feature of using Compose inside apply to each loop is that if accessed outside loop it gives you output in array. So you can use one compose action with formatted date as you want like Start Date : End Date and then outside of loop use compose action with output as outputs('Compose').

 

Thanks

Hi @ManishJain ,

 

I've tried this and it didn't work, perhaps I'm doing something wrong:

Radoslavov_1-1608709789600.png

Radoslavov_2-1608709806056.png

outputs('Apply_to_each')['Composed_time']
 
But I got the following error 
Radoslavov_3-1608710245849.png

InvalidTemplate. Unable to process template language expressions in action 'Compose' inputs at line '1' and column '15787': 'The template language expression 'outputs('Apply_to_each')['Composed_time']' cannot be evaluated because property 'Composed_time' cannot be selected. Please see https://aka.ms/logicexpressions for usage details.'.
