Hi @sannadisarath 

 

Try the below format

You can change the Value format the to include any other fields as you like

Make sure you have Response action JSON Schema set

for my example schema is

 

{
"type": "array",
"items": {
"type": "object",
"properties": {
"url": {
"type": "string"
},
"displayname": {
"type": "string"
}
},
"required": [
"url",
"displayname"
]
}
}
 
Change schema based on your array object 
 
In PowerApps Use
ClearCollect(colReturnCol, 'PowerAppsbutton'.Run())
 
Flow name. Run function
return type will be held in a collection
 
Please note - PowerApps does keep a cached connection
Your best bet will be to remove the flow connection from powerapp and then re-add it 
 
I tested your entire scenario and it worked for me

Re: Return multiple Json return values to powerapps from flow

I cannot use response action inside foreach or even outside for each, is there any other way to get the consolidated response?

Hi @sannadisarath 

 

You can set an array object variable in Flow with all the data you need to pass and then send it using response action at end of flow

Re: Return multiple Json return values to powerapps from flow

i tried using select output, which fails for me, so i have used current item as output but the response i am seeing as "true" from response action in powerapps

@sannadisarath 

select returns array

 

so you will have to loop through that array and add each item to your array using expression item()
