Struggling to get Parse JSON to work with my automated approval

Hi all. 

Please help. First time Power Automate user here. 

I managed to create a flow, and it works pretty well, up to a point. 

So I have a form people fill in, that then populates an Excel doc on my Team. 

This then needs to trigger an automatic approval section in my flow. But this is where i am struggling. 

Here is my flow - please let me know what I am missing? And/or how to get my JSON to work?

Thank you!

Hi @jolene,

 

Does your parse json action error?

 

If so, I would do the following steps.

1. Run the flow once

2. Copy/paste the body output of the response details action

3. Paste that content in the 'Enter or paste a sample JSON payload.' of the parse json action

 

By doing this you should get a valid parse json schema for your action.

 

It's also described in more detail in this blog from John Liu:
