Greater or less than Current time

Hi,

 

How are you all?

 

I have a flow where I capture the current date time this is shown as:

 

"body": "2019-10-28T08:13:37.2080299Z"
 
I want to say as part of condition:
 
CurrentDateTime is >= 07:30:00 and CurrentDateTime is <= 09:00:00
 
Any ideas how I achieve this ?
 
Thanks in advance

Try the following

 

formatDateTime(utcNow(),'HHmmss'). This will give you an output without semi-colons.
 
Then compare this with  073000 & 090000

Hey thanks for this, however the condition fails at the bottom of this screenshot.

 

"Unable to process template language expressions for action 'Condition_2' at line '1' and column '2770': 'The template language function 'less' expects two parameter of matching types. The function was invoked with values of type 'String' and 'Integer' that do not match.'."

 

The expression used is

 

formatDateTime(variables('Time'),'HHmmss')

Could you use compose step instead of variable and try?
