JSON Format error when using 'Get Rows' from SQL

Hi All, 

 

I would really appreciate some advice with building this flow! 

 

I am essentially trying to get rows that were created in the year 2018 (which works fine) it just fails with the error 'The response is not in a JSON format.'

 

Any ideas on why or how to fix? 

 

Thanks! (Screenshot below)

Hi @ niamhks,

 

What action has failed in your flow?

If the error code 502 appears, the failure is temporary or transient.

You could refer to link below to troubleshoot a flow:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/flow/fix-flow-failures

 

 

I have made a test on my side and don’t have the issue that you mentioned.

 

The screenshots of my flow’s configuration as below:

The flow run successfully as below:

Please Resubmit  the flow again and see if your problem still exists.

Alice Zhang

Turns out my problem was that I just needed to capitalize 'name' in the Filter of Get rows.

In case someone also encounters this issue.

 

Here, it was also a case problem i had :'Id eq 145', and it was fixed when I entered 'ID eq 145'.

So be carefull you use the exact fieldname.

I've used a million of these get rows actions in FLOW and this is the first time I truely can't figure this out.

 

I am filtering just like you:

LastModified ge @{body('Subtract_from_time')}

 

but I get:

"message": "The response is not in a JSON format."

 

The spelling and case of LastModified is correct and the Flow runs with eq rather than gt or ge I just get no values since none of the records had that exact date in LastModified.

I was having issues with this also - i was using ColumnName eq -> and having this point to a dynamic property off an email (subject line).

I had to wrap the dynamic property in apostrophes to get it to work. my code looks like this now:

"ColumnName eq '@{triggerBody()?['Subject']}'"
