How to verify info in email body

Good Day All. Thank you in advance for any help. I am trying to search the body of an email (Its an alert email from MS). After I convert the body to plain text I need to check to see if there is a number higher than 0, but dont know how to search just the test I need. In the test below I need it to find the Total failing checks and then find the number a few lines later. In the code below I highlighted the test and number I need it to find. I then need to forward the email based on if the number is higher than zero. Could really use help on how to do the data verification. Thank you!!

Re: How to verify info in email body


Hi there!  For this, I'd lean into a 3rd party tool like Parserr.  With that, you could set a rule that looks for "Total failing checks" and grab the thing after it (I'm pretty sure you could even leave it in HTML format).


From there, you could just set a condition to continue the flow if the count was high enough.

Keep us posted.

Hi @mikecarey ,


Could you try to configure a similar Flow and provide the results of Compose to us so that we can provide the appropriate expression to extract the data you need?
