Stored Procedure - Apply To Each

Hi All, I am having trouble with building a flow to send out individual emails to a list of customers.

Here is a general sense of what I am trying to do:

  • A flow runs a stored procedure, getting a list of customer emails
  • For each email address, a stored procedure will be ran using that email address as a parameter.
    This will now return a list of all past due invoices.
  • I would like the flow to then shoot an email out to the customer with this information.

My issue is not designing the email body itself or building the stored procedures - that I can easily do.

What I need help with is building the flow properly so that I can apply the stored procedure to each email address, and reference each one as a variable.

 

I tried a few things but haven't had any luck.

 

Any help is appreciated!

Kevin

@ChristianAbata   @v-bacao-msft Thanks to you both for helping out.

I have gotten my flow to work wonderfully.  Here is the full build:

 

Pic 1: My first stored procedure deletes all rows in a table (from the previous day), then populates that table (today's rows) with customers who have new overdue invoices based on some criteria the company decided upon.  The second stored procedure then goes and gets those rows, which are simply a customer ID number and their accounting departments email address. *Ignore the "Records" variable, I should have removed it - it is not used*

Pic 2: Set the style for the HTML table and the table itself.

Pic 3: Condition ensures I only continue with records that do not have a null email address.  Then, a stored procedure is ran for each customer/email that retrieves all of the invoice details for that customer. I then parse the results.

Pic 4:  'Select' after parsing, and then I 'Set' the HTML table variable that was initialized earlier.

Pic 5:  Another apply to each and then appending each customer related invoice to the body of the HTML table.  Must append a closing tag to the table before finally moving onto the email.

My result email looks like this:

The first stored procedure will get a list of email addresses from overdue accounts.

Then, for each email address, a stored procedure will run to get their invoice data.

Lastly, an email will send to the email address with the newly returned data.

 

The flow picture should give some visual idea of what I'm trying to accomplish.Capture1.PNG

 
 

@canovalik  if you want to treat a result as a variable you can do this.

and then you can use the query result outside your apply to each to send messages or whateber you want.

Hi @canovalik ,

 

It seems that you could Parse JSON to parse the data output by Get Email List.

Please check this blog and get more details about Parse JSON:

http://johnliu.net/blog/2018/6/a-thesis-on-the-parse-json-action-in-microsoft-flow

 

After the Body is parsed, I believe you can quickly build the Flow you need.

Please take a try and feel free to let us know if you have any questions.

 

Best Regards,
