Populating a variable array with variables

Hi all, and happy new year!

 

I am getting through various compose() the fields from a JSON. 

I want to put some of these fields into an array (fig.1).

At a certain condition, on this array so populated i would then run an apply to each to see if one or more of the fields in the array are equal with a certain value (fig.2).

If I understood correctly, i need to go through a compose(createarray()) in order to set the array variable. However i don't really have a clue on how to do it in a way that it maintains the syntax.

Or should i use again a parse JSON?

I have to admit that I am a bit lost here 😉

 

ADDENDUM: in fig.3 i've put how the array should look like (at least in my mind)

Thank you in advance and best regards,

 

Vittorio

Hi @nightfall :

Don't you want to refer to the previous compose action value in a ‘dynamic content’ way?Some thing like :1.JPG

If so,the answer is 'Yes'.You can use this formula:

 

outputs('ComposeActionName')

It doesn't seem to have chaged much from before,just use 'expression' instead of 'dynamic content'.But iam afraid there is no other way.

In addition,if my understanding is wrong,please help me point it out.Thank you.

Best Regards,

Bof

An old adage says "the night brings advice", and a corollary to this statement is "never post question in the forum at night".

I used a mix of compose() and "append to array" to create the array the way i wanted, and it works!

I have however another question, namely is it possible to write in the compose() the reference to the previous output() in written, without having to select it manually like in the picture?

 

Thank you and best regards,
