Getting SP items and split each item's string

Hello there !

I've seen a lot of solutions for splitting string and then applying foreach, but i haven't seen the way around.

Explanations :

I'm getting ItemS from Sharepoint (depending on their departure date), and for each of them, I have a string called PassengersMails, which is like the following : "email1@XXX.com;email2.XXX.com;email3.XXX.com".

i already have a foreach on the Value of GetItems.

In it, i already have a condition on If PassengersMails is empty.

Now in the No of the condition, i would like to split the PassengersMails string to an array. For each item in this array, I want to retrieve the Passenger's Display Name (using a O365Users connection) and to store it in a new string.

 

I can't figure out how to proceed.

How to split a string from a foreach Value ?

 

Thanks a lot, have a nice day.

Re: Getting SP items and split each item's string

Hi!

 

If you have a common delimiter you could use the split expression maybe? 

I have tested it wit a variable with two e-mailadresses in it, and then an apply to each where the input is the splitted version of that variable (for you it's your string from your previous action):

Hope this helps, otherwise let me know I will check again 🙂

Hi @Gaëlle !

 

Did this solve your problem, or do you need any other help? 

Otherwise could you mark the answer as solution?

Re: Getting SP items and split each item's string

Hi @Willemijn , how do I traverse the string using built-in API's in MS Flow?

 

Apologies as I'm very new to this..

Right now, what I can do is use the first() and last() functions, but this limits me to only 2 inputs..

I want to get the values per index such as..

 

name = splitString[0];

address = splitString[1];

Re: Getting SP items and split each item's string

Hi, 

 

Do you have an example with sample data of the string you would want to split and what the expected outcome is? 

Then I can take a look.
