I want to keep the date only. 

For that i add a compose action and i use this expression

 

substring(outputs('Compose'),0,10)

 

It's working for the monteh where the date are in this format DD/MM/YYYY but sometimes the date are in this format DD/M/YYYY and in this case the expression take the comma. Exemple : 14/01/2022, 

 

Could you help me ?

Thanks

We can use the split() function, and split the date/time at the comma character. Try the following expression:

 

first(split(outputs('Compose'),','))

 

The split() function returns an array with two items:

We just want the first item. The first() function will return the first item of the array (i.e. item 0).

The following shows the run time output - with date/times of different lengths:

Hope this helps.
