Need to Extract Value from Variable Array by Key in Pair

Hello,

 

My challenge is to obtain the numeric value that has been paired with a string key name stored in a Variable Array named T Factors (e.g. ["Readiness,3"]).  The final goal is to insert that numeric value into a numeric column for a single Sharepoint list item.

 

Perhaps I'm trying to overthink this or simplify this too much, but after a day of attempts, I'm lost.

 

Any help provided would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thank you,

 

Doug

Hi @DougMyers 

 

Array - ["Readiness,3"]

Use expressions

 

int(variables('varname')?[1])  - this will give you the number 3

variables('varname')?[0] - this will give you the string Readiness

 

varname - name of your variable

Re: Need to Extract Value from Variable Array by Key in Pair

Thank you for the insight.

 

I tried the basic one and cannot get it to work.  Here are a few ways I tried (placing in a text column for now):

 

variables('T Factor'?[1]) (This is pointing the the Variable Array.)
variables('Readiness'?[1])
 
I get "The expression is invalid." when I try to save it.
 
Note:
 
There are 27 items in the array T Factor.   Here's how I build the Variable Array key-value pair:

Any further advice?
 
Cheers.

Correction:

 

variables('T Factor')?[1] obtains the 2nd pair within the array but does not allow for obtaining a specific key OR value.
