Got to be a better way to deal with empty fields from SharePoint

I am using select to map an object/array, that i run through a Parse JSON figuring that if i just remove the type it would at least aknowledge that the property is there even if its empty.

 

I have come to the (hopefully wrong) conclusion that i have to test/default each field with:

if(empty(item()?['fieldname']), '', item()?['fieldname'])

This feels like such an ugly hack, there must be a better way to deal with this, any suggestions?

Hi @hjaf,

 

Yes, the only way to get the empty fields from SharePoint is use the expression that you provided and there is any better way to deal with this in microsoft flow currently.

 

Best regards,

Thanks for the feedback, I assume you mean there isn't any better way. I made a suggestion/idea about this here
