 I was wondering if it´s possible to extract Data from a Website and send it as a  email ? 

I want to check the news on this website and send them as an email if these  are "high" (German : "hoch" )  Problems 

BSI - Cyber-Sicherheitswarnungen (bund.de)

I cannot even get that website to load in my browser. Is the URL correct?

i want to extract these 3 news- feeds and send them as an email 

 

I've taken a look at the site, and there's no obvious API to hook into and the RSS feeds don't provide the information that you want.

 

So you'll either need to run a Desktop flow to 'scrape' the page, or if you have a paid licence, you can use a periodical 'GET' HTTP request to retrieve it.

 

Given more time, I'm sure I could maybe find more, as they link to their SharedDocuments which must mean that there's a listing of those somewhere. However I think you'll need to actually contact them for anything more bespoke. I'm sure they'd like to help, though.

I had a provisional look at scraping with the HTTP connector, it is certainly possible. But not an easy flow to build if you are new to the platform.
