Send JSON data (a record) from PowerApps to flow

Hi,

 

I hope you can help me. I try to send data from PowerApps to flow, but I retrevieve nothing in my flow when I click on my button in PowerApps. However, this data is not empty and the flow is triggered when we click the button.

 

The data is a record which is supposed to be in JSON format (I'm not sure), but my flow retrevieve nothing.

 

I implemented this on PowerApps side:

I Implemented this on Flow side:

And my flow shows me that after being executed:

 You can see that "template data" as no data.

 

PS: When I tested my flow by adding manually the data it's work very well.

 

Do anyone knows how to retrevieve record data from PowerApps to Flow ?

Your reply that is marked as a solution is correct but not actually the solution to the question asked by @Anonymous.

The issue is the reverse, it is not about how to return a record to PowerApps, but about how to supply a record as a parameter to Flow from PowerApps.

Is there any solution?

Hi @Anonymous,

 

Maybe you could use the expression ClearCollect for the Onselect.

Hi @v-yuazh-msft,

 

Thank you for responding to this post. But As @Meneghino said, what I want to do is to send a Json object from PowerApps to flow, not vice versa. Maybe somebody knows how to transform a Json object to a string in PowerApps, it could be easier to send a string to flow than a Json object. 

PS: My Json object is retreived from my sharepoint database in PowerApps


Best regards,

Hi @Anonymous, actually the solution is probably to use the concatenation functions in PowerApps to create the JSON string from a table source (collection etc.)

Please let me know if you require details on this.
