Send JSON to Flow after button click

H,

 

I have the following form created from CDS data source of entity type 'Task'.

I need to send a JSON object with the field values after users clicks on Submit.

 

I am new to PowerAPs and not sure what the best way to go about doing this.

 

Please help.

Yes, this is possible.  Build your JSON output as a string in PowerApps.  Make sure you use single quotes rather than double quotes.  Then send that string to Flow as a Parameter.  In Flow you can use a sample of your JSON output to create the schema in a Parse Json action.  Feed the JSON string you get as input into that action and you will have dynamic content for the fields in the JSON output.  For example I built a test using the followin JSON

{
'employee': {  
        'name':       'LastName',   
        'salary':      56000,   
        'married':    true  
    }  
}

I passed that as a string to Flow from a PowerApps button.  Then Parsed it in Flow.  AFter that was done I had access to name, salary, and married as dynamic content in Flow.

 

The one limitation is that you have to use a fixed JSON schema so that Flow will know how to read the string you pass.
