JSON error when inserting sharepoint "created by" and "created by email" fields into an HTTP flow

I'm trying to create a flow that starts once a list item is added into sharepoint, it then sends a HTTP request to our service desk system.

 

In the HTTP body, it will let me insert one of the dynamic objects - Created By, or Created By Email, but not both, which results in a JSON error

 

We need both of these fields for our service desk system. 

 

Here's a screenshot with just Created By. No JSON error

And heres the flow with both Created By and Created By email. Note the JSON error at the bottom, so it won't let me save the flow

Hi @CrispyFries,

 

Can you try creating two variables and set these variables to the Created By and the created by email.
