Use output of multiple condition in subsequent steps

Hi Community! 

I am building a flow where I trigger an action based on the condition that at least one of a series of keywords is present in the body of an email.


My condition has multiple rows, and in the step following the evaluation of the condition I would like to index the position in the email body of the string that has been found. 


When I test the flow and look at the output of the condition, the only result i see is "true", rergardless of which keyword was successfully matched. 


Is it possible to use the output of the condition evaluation in following steps, or alternatively are you aware a more efficient way to obtain this result?

Thanks in advance for your help,

Re: Use output of multiple condition in subsequent steps

Hi @lucasiragusa ,


Basically, Condition has no actual output, it is only used as a logical judgment, so the return value is only true or false.

You could try to use other actions to create the same logical, and also could get the corresponding matched keyword.


  • We need to initialize two array variables in advance, divide all the keywords into two groups, and store them in the array variable in the JSON object format.
  • Then use Filter array to filter out the keywords contained in Compose.
  • Then use the length() function to determine if there are any elements in the Body of the Filter array.
  • Finally, you could get the corresponding keyword using variables('VariableName')['index']['KeyWord'].
  • You could also use Apply to each to traverse the Body of the Filter array.
