Send Exception details in email in flow

Hi, We are using scope to handle exception in flow, Whenever request will fail, support team will get an email. But it doesn't contains details about exception. Support Team has to check flow details every time to check the exception. How can we send exception details in email.

Hi @vandana ,

Find the below approach for send the Error Information using mail when flow got failed.


Step 1. First Initialize the Variable like below. 


Step 2. Now Filter the Error and Append the error details. and Send the Email for Error to Developer.


In the above screen you can see the result(Main).

So here Main is the Scope where all the Actions happen



.Now we can filter the Error Details and add them into the mail.



Send email Like Below-

Which connector you have used to filter error details. I have found only one connector "filter array" . 

Thats the correct connector you gotta use.

Yes, Filter array you have to use for this purpose.

Using filter array you can filter existing request and send details of that request. I don't need details of request. I want to send exact exception due to which flow failed.




like here request failed due to exception column 'id' does not exist. I want to send this request in email. is it possible to send this information?

You can directly use Body('get_item') and read status and message from it...

there is no property found with name Body('get_item').in  try block there may be more than connector like 1 for getting list item and another for inserting data. We can bind with single property in catch. we need some generic way to get exception occured in try block

Hi @vandana ,

You can Use the Below flow Just this Flow and add all your action into the Main Scope.
and Error Scope set the Email.
