How to get a value from a Microsoft Flow into PowerApps

I have a question posted elsewhere explaining that I can't figure out how to get JSON data into my PowerApps via a Flow, so I thought I'd try and make the worlds most simple flow - one that just creates and returns a string - and test that. I STILL can't get it to work? I have followed online guides. 

 

Here is my simple flow, then you see me set a variable as the result of the flow, then I try to use that variable in a lable. But when I add the variable then a '.' nothing comes up after. There's nothing for me to select. No value, no nothing. I'm so confused 😞

Re: How to get a value from a Microsoft Flow into PowerApps

Hi @JamesM

Have you tried using the PowerApps trigger ? I don't know if there is a link between the powerapps trigger and the response to powerapps action, but my idea is that with the PowerApps trigger, your app is aware that it's expecting an answer, and maybe it's not using an HTTP request.

Re: How to get a value from a Microsoft Flow into PowerApps

Hi @JamesM,

 

Have you checked the following blog?

Return an Array form Flow to PowerApps (Response Method)

 

The Response to PowerApps currently have some limits returning array.

 

For the Variable value, please navigate to File->Variables to check if the value has been collected.

Please review the steps in Response to PowerApps, the additional attribute should be defined under the Output part when configure the Flow.

Please let me know if you have any further questions.

I will share the test resuts from my side later.

 

Regards,

Michael

Re: How to get a value from a Microsoft Flow into PowerApps

Thanks everyone for their contributions. I will test some of this within the next 24 hours or so, and report back. If I can solve getting back JSON arrays from Microsoft Flow into PowerApps, it will open up many possibilities for my app.
