Limit nested JSON objects in Flow before sending to Powerapps

I am trying to send a JSON object from Flow to Powerapps to create a collection to use in Powerapps. The problem is that my JSON object has too many nested objects that exceeds the limits of the nested Gallery controls connected to my Powerapps collection (which is 2).

 

How do I trim my JSON object so the nested items are only 2 levels deep. In the example of my response how to I get rid of the "responses" level using flow. I think I need to use for each as I have seem something similar to flattening a JSON object for a csv table but cant seem to get it right.

Re: Limit nested JSON objects in Flow before sending to Powerapps

Hi Alice,

 

I am trying to transfer the JSON response back to a collection in Powerapps. If I take the response as is, it creates a structure that is 3 levels deep. Thus when trying to use this response in a Gallery in Powerapps it is restricted to 2 levels. I was wondering if there is a way to flatten this out some and thought by being able to remove the "response" level array that would do the trick.

 

Best,

Lance
