Trapping Yammer #joined messages

I am trying to reply with a Welcome message when a new user joins our Yammer network.


First, is there a group Id for the All Company group so I can restrict the flow to just that group?


Second, I am using a simple condtion:

Object Name: Message Text

Relationship: Contains

Value: has #joined the network.


This translates into 

@contains(triggerBody()['content_excerpt'], 'has #joined the network.')


However it does doesn't trigger when the Outputs for the Body of the message contain:


"content_excerpt": "Somebody else has #joined the network.",


Any ideas?

I'm a bit disappointed that nobdy has been able to help me with what I thought would be a simple problem to solve. Looks like I will have to look into writing Yammer API code, which I have been trying to avoid.

I'm looking to do the same thing.  Did you ever figure this out?

Not applicable

I'm trying to figure out how to do something similar, albeit more general: I'd like to be able to create a conditional trigger based on a certain Yammer topic (hashtag) - I could look in the message body, but topics can be added in Yammer that are not in the message body. 

Hopefully someone from the Flow team will respond soon.
