PowerApp true/false variable

Hello all,

 

I am sending a variable to flow through powerapps that is either true or false. In the condition i have the variable is equal to true. But it keeps going to false, the if no block. Is the way i am entering "true" wrong  ?

As @RezaDorrani mentions.  In my experience its always best to enter True/False values as an expression when using them in a condition.  Entering the text will sometimes work, but its spotty.

it may be how i am sending the variable from powerapps, because it doesnt seem to be working. Keeps defaulting to false in flow. 

 

Button(for approving) OnSelect Property code: 

UpdateContext({aprv: true});
AprvDenLeakNotification.Run(aprv,DataCardValue19_1.Text,DataCardValue19_1.Text, orderIdApvDenValue.Text,DataCardValue10.Text,userEmail)

 

Button(for denying) OnSelect Property code: 

UpdateContext({aprv: false});
AprvDenLeakNotification.Run(aprv,DataCardValue19_1.Text,DataCardValue19_1.Text, orderIdApvDenValue.Text,DataCardValue10.Text,userEmail)

 

am i missing something ?

Hi @mmattar 

 

in your flow I am assuming you are using a boolean variable to store this passed value

 

When u run the flow, check the value in this variable and share screenshot

In my understanding the boolean variable is Condition_ObjectName, which is a boolean being passed to powerapps.flow1.PNGflow2.PNG

by the way, the screenshots is a use cases for the flow to return true

yes but the variable is in the condition so cannot see its value in Flow

 

add a compose action before the condition

and add the boolen variable being passed from PowerApps to Flow in the compose action

 

then run you flow and share screnshot so we can see the value inside the compose action
