One string variable with multipe values



I am trying to retrieve users in site groups from a Sharepoint site. Firslty I am retrieving al the site groups through a HTTP request, put that output in a Parse Json, and then turning the names of the site group in a variable. Photo 1 shows the overall flow.

The following photo's show the four outputs from [apply to each - append to string variable]

output 1.JPGVariable 1Ouptut 2.JPGVariable 2Output 3.JPGVariable 3Test 4.JPGVariable 4

If I would insert a HTTP request with the following URI:  _api/web/sitegroups/getbyname('VarGroupName')/users I will get the following 4 outputs (with an error ofcourse):


_api/web/sitegroups/getbyname('Test 1')/users

_api/web/sitegroups/getbyname('Test 1Test Members')/users

_api/web/sitegroups/getbyname('Test 1Test MembersTest Owners')/users

_api/web/sitegroups/getbyname('Test 1Test MembersTest Owners Test Visitors')/users


Here is a photo of the 3rd result.

Now I know this is due to the Append to string variable input, but does anyone know how I can make sure that only one of each variable is filled in individually?


Thanks in advance!

Re: One string variable with multipe values

when you do an append you should put a separator in.


So something like text1;text2;text3


Then in the in the apply to each feed is with 




where the ... is the variable that is set to text1;text2;text3


Now you will get 3 items 


Text1  and text2 and text3
