Has anyone had any issues while trying to pass integer values from flow to powerapps?

I encountered this issue while trying to pass an integer input from flow to canvas app.

In this flow, I have two variables


1. FileID - Integer

2. FileID_textV - Assigned above file ID to a string variable



Now when I check in the canvas app, it only shows the text value.



However, text field is populating just fine. 


Is this a bug or am I missing something here? 

If there is a limitation like this, I guess I can pass the text value and convert it to int using value function within the canvas app.

However, I am curious to know what caused integers to not pass through.

If it a textbox, change the format to number.

Hi @kaushalk ,


I can reproduce your problem, and the workaround is to format the variable to integer by Int function.

Modify the FileID value to  int(variables('Var_FileID'))




Thanks for the workaround however, FileId is already an integer variable.


Why do I need to convert it to int again using an expression? Is this a bug/ known issue or is this the intended behavior?

Hi @kaushalk 


Yes, that seems to be a bug between integer variable and Respond action.

I will submit it to Microsoft, and reply in time if there is any update.

For now, please apply that alternative workaround.


Thanks for confirming. Hope this gets fixed soon.
