Dataverse - List Rows - Handle Result

Hello there. 

I perform a successful List Row (dataverse) action in my flow, with a Odata search criteria that works and returns the single row with the information I'm after. Then I get lost with how to handle the result and extract the two column values i'm after.  Below is a copy of the result, all I need to extract and use in a HTTP API call is "cr953_jobid": "ID_I_NEED_TO_USE", "cr953_jobname": "THE_NAME_OF_THE_JOB",

How do I achieve that please?

Cheers

Luke

Hi @LukePWilkins,

 

It should be possible to parse the JSON content by adding a Parse JSON action and adding the body payload:

 

{
"@odata.context": "https://orgc9bd3046.crm6.dynamics.com/api/data/v9.1/$metadata#cr953_workflowmaxes(cr953_jobid,cr953_...)",
"@Microsoft.Dynamics.CRM.totalrecordcount": -1,
"@Microsoft.Dynamics.CRM.totalrecordcountlimitexceeded": false,
"value": [
{
"@odata.type": "#Microsoft.Dynamics.CRM.cr953_workflowmax",
"@odata.id": "https://domain.crm6.dynamics.com/api/data/v9.1/cr953_workflowmaxes(cf5033a4-c9c8-eb11-bacc-00224817f...)",
"@odata.etag": "W/\"1142967\"",
"@odata.editLink": "cr953_workflowmaxes(cf5033a4-c9c8-eb11-bacc-00224817f386)",
"cr953_jobid": "ID_I_NEED_TO_USE",
"cr953_jobname": "THE_NAME_OF_THE_JOB",
"cr953_workflowmaxid@odata.type": "#Guid",
"cr953_workflowmaxid": "cf5033a4-c9c8-eb11-bacc-00154817f386"
}
]
}

Pass the body value as the input parameter and then you can use the below expression to retrieve any property value by using the expression: 

For eg: body('Parse_JSON')?['value']?[0]?['cr953_jobname']

Really appreciate the reply! I had gone down the Parse JSON path with some success, but always found myself dealing with an array output, which was throwing me! However I tried, I ended up with an array!!

 

The syntax in bold is probably what I need... i thank you in advanced and will try it later today!

@vikulkar , i tested it! Works a treat. You are amazing! Thank you. 

I've learned a heap attempting this project of mine... that syntax to retrieve individual values will stay with me forever!

 

cheers so much

For reference, would it be possible to explain, how body('Parse_JSON')?['value']?[0]?['cr953_jobname'] 

works? Explain the syntax maybe and how it all fits together please

Sure,

All we are doing here is referring the value property which is an array of objects and since it is an array, 

We need to mention which object to refer, in the whole array of objects.

Because you had mentioned earlier that your output would always return a single object so the index will always be [0] (Suppose your output returns 2 rows then [1] would have returned the information of the second row)

Finally, the ['cr953_jobname'] will tell which property in that object needs to be returned. In the above eg it is: ID_I_NEED_TO_USE

 

Hope that helps..
