How to consolidate array entries based on a duplicate value?

Using the below array as an example I am trying to send 1 email to "someemail@gmail.com" with a table of the elements "System", and "Acronym". I am not sure how to do this, any help is appreciated.

 

 

[
 {
      "System": "Contaminant Assessment Process",
      "Acronym": "CAP",
      "Primary Contact Email": "someemail@gmail.com"
    },
    {
      "System": "Contaminants Investigations Database",
      "Acronym": "CID",
      "Primary Contact Email": "someemail@gmail.com"
    },
    {
      "System": "Pesticide Use Proposal",
      "Acronym": "PUPS",
      "Primary Contact Email": "someemail@gmail.com"
    },
    {
      "System": "Refuge Cleanup Projects",
      "Acronym": "RCP",
      "Primary Contact Email": "someemail@gmail.com"
    }
]

Go into your flow, choose to add a new step, go to "My Clipboard" and then copy the below into your clipboard and press CRTL-V. I've put everything you need into a scope which you can just paste.

Do you mean System and Acronym?

Yes, thanks for catching that, I've edited it to be correct.

Never knew you could do this! Very cool! What you have is closer to what I'm after however I don't think I explained my end goal as well so my fault.

 

I ended up following what I found here, and am in good shape.
