How to determine status code for a condition

I want to put in a condition that checks the output status code of the step above it.


So if it's output status code is 200 it's yes but if it's output status code is 404 then it's no.

What would be the syntax to have a condition step read the "Status Code" of a prior step and take action based on this?

Hi @PowerAppsJunkie ,

 

You could try the following method to get the status code.

  • Configure Compose action under the specified action to get the status code.
outputs('ActionName')['statusCode']
  • If the action name contains a space, replace the space with "_".
  • Set Configure run after, continue to execute the following action when the above action runs successfully and fails.

Hi @PowerAppsJunkie 

 

So lets say you have an http request action and you need to fetch the response status code

 

you can use expression

body('HTTP')?['statusCode']

 

You can share screenshot of your action which produces the status code response if you want the exact expression

@v-bacao-msft That worked great!

I have a question though.  Is there a reason to use it in compose vs just putting that statement in the expression of the condition?

 

I used it both the compose and the condition and it worked both ways.

 

Also if I wanted to check the output of say Body instead of statusCode would I use ['Body']?  Is there a reference for outputs that I can lookup so I know what I can grab from the output of an action?

This is REALLY useful, thank you 🙂

@v-bacao-msft do you know if this has changed since you posted this? I can't get this to work using the statusCode property. 

Worked great for me. In my case, I am reading the output of an 'Add member to group' action using

 

outputs('Add_member_to_group')['statusCode']

 

My only problem now is how to get a list of status codes. Is it action-specific?
