Switch Equal expression with multiple values

Hello,

I am using the Switch function and have a Case that can be multiple options. What is the best expression I can use for this?

Can equal either one:

504

525 

513 

 If so, send to Value = email address

Hey there - to my knowledge, Switch cases can only compare single values using "equals" as a comparator. "Contains" is not supported. 

 

To do this, you could nest test switch case inside one of the branches of a condition. Use the "contains" comparator in the condition to catch the one case with several values and deal with the rest using the switch case.

Use this instead of Case:

 

or(or(equals(variables('numvar'),504),equals(variables('numvar'),525)),equals(variables('numvar'),513))

I would personally use a totally different method, especially if the number of conditions is going to grow. I would make a JSON array like this:

[
  {
    "value": "504",
    "email": "paul@paul.com"
  },
  {
    "value": "525",
    "email": "someone@somewhere.net"
  },
  {
    "value": "513",
    "email": "jim@enterprise.com"
  }
]

Filter that array based on the value, and the take the email address. It's just cleaner and more scalable.

Do you get where I am coming from?
