Using part of a received emails Subject field within the "add a row" to an Excel file stored in Sharepoint

Hi all,

 

I'm trying to create a flow that will add a row to a table of an Excel file stored in Sharepoint, most of which I've figured out, but I also need to use some of the Subject and add this to a column within the Excel table.

 

The table looks like this;

 I want to be able to take the name in brackets at the end of the Subject and add this to the User column. The wording in the Subject will always be one of the two Subjects that you see here. I was hoping I could add an expression to "add a row" in the flow that would do this but I don't know how and am having trouble finding a way to do it. The flow is shown below;

Any help gratefully received!

Thanks

Hi!
So my suggestion is to add a condition to evaluate if Subject contains either 'The Demo System has been shutdown' or 'The Demo System has been restarted and is now ready to use'
Now on the false branch you can add a terminate action block
9nce we get the right condition working we can even move it to trigger settings for optimization
Will be back in some minutes with a suggestion to extranct info inside brackets
Hope this helps

Now let's see how to take the name in brackets at the end of the Subject
Assuming the only brakets in your target email Subjects are the ones delimiting username, I would suggest the following expression:

replace(last(split(triggerBody()?['Subject'],'(')),')','')
Hope this helps
