RSS to Twitter

Hi all

 

I am trying to build a Flow that pulls from an RSS feed, then posts to a social media page.

 

I need the Flow to take the RSS 'Feed title', trim it at a particuar point - for example after the closed bracket ')' . Then replace the open bracket with another symbol - for example a hyphen '-'.

 

Then I want to post the result to social media - I know how to do this part.

 

Apologies if I'm using the incorrect terminology. Can anyone help me out with the expressions.

 

Thanks

Hi @alpine,

 

Please try to use the function Replace to replace the open bracket with a hyphen.

 

The code could be configured like:

replace('the old string', 'old', 'new')

 

Please check the following doc for more details and try it on your side.

Re: RSS to Twitter

Thanks, @v-yamao-msft

 

I have had some success with the replace expression.

 

Now I am wondering if it is possible to run two replace expressions after eachother.

 

Here is an exmaple of an RSS post dynamic content that I'm trying to play with:

Animal (DOGS,USELESS TEXT,ID: 654321)

 

This is what I’m trying to get out of the above example:

Animal - DOGS

 

So, I started with this: 

replace(triggerBody()?['title’],’,USELESS TEXT,ID: ’,’‘)

 

Which left me with:  Animal (DOGS654321)

 

Then I would need to run:

replace(triggerBody()?['title’],’ (’,’ - ‘)

 

Which would leave me with:  Animal - DOGS654321)

 

Then I need to use some sort of truncate to remove the remaining 7 characters. These would be 6 random numbers followed by a closed bracket.

 

Thanks for your help. I am completely new to Flow and PowerApps. I have spent days trying to get this to work Smiley Very Happy
