Help with Trigger Conditions

I have a flow i want to run only if a list column is equal to a choice field text.  Example would be Business Unit is equal to Indiana.  

 

I've tried @equal and @contains but neither are working and not sure what the issues could be.  

 

The column is a drop down between Indiana Chicago and Michigan.  

 

@contains(triggerBody()?['Business Unit Value'], 'Indiana')

@equals(triggerBody()?['Business Unit Value'], 'Indiana')

With everyone's help i was able to figure out the correct command, thanks for all your help. 

 

This is the trigger command that worked. 

 

@equals(triggerBody()?['Business_x0020_Unit']?['Value'], 'Indiana')

Hi @eenochs 

 

Drop down column return Id and value , so you should use value property in your condition:

following should work :

 

@contains(triggerBody()?['<Column Name>']?['Value'], Indiana)  (Note: no ' ' in indiana)

Hi @eenochs ,

 

If the Business Unit column is a choice field and don't allow multiple selections, the expression should as below:

 

@contains(triggerBody()?['BusinessUnit']?['Value'], 'Indiana')

@equals(triggerBody()?['BusinessUnit']?['Value'], 'Indiana')

Not having the ' ' around Indiana didn't allow me to save the flow.  

This is still not working.  Using either the contains or the equal i'm getting the following error.  

 

InvalidTemplate. Unable to process template language expressions for trigger 'When_an_item_is_created' at line '1' and column '11402': 'The template language function 'contains' expects its first argument 'collection' to be a dictionary (object), an array or a string. The provided value is of type 'Null'.'.
