How do I break a for-each loop?

Hello everybody,


I've run into a situation where I need to parse some arrays and break when it finds what I am looking for. I tried using the 'Terminate' function in my loop where it finds a correct datum but I receive an error saying 'Terminate' cannot be used within a for each loop. 


Is there any way to perform this logic?


Here is a picture of the flow:

Hi @ChrisC,


Add a do until loop.

Hi ChrisC,


For better understanding, could you show me a full screenshot of your flow configuration?


Here is an article about “build more advanced flows than ever”, hope it can be a reference for you:

Does it really work?

Could you provide an example?

I tried and it throws an error when updating a flow:

The workflow run action 'Terminate' has type 'Terminate' that is not allowed to be nested under an action of type 'until'.
