I have a form created with InfoPath that's submitted to a designated folder as xml. This is a trigger for the flow to grab the item and attach it to email that's sent.
With Nintex workflow it was really easy to also get some data from the form itself via xpath address... I fail to find an option to do so using the flow.
Has anyone managed to gather a data from the file using the flow?
PS: I apologize if I hijacked an incorrect topic.
Hi @Sanel ,
Currently, MS Flow does not support InfoPath connector, and cannot directly obtain the XML file in the designed folder.
If it can be issued as an attachment, you could use the existing features of Flow to process this XML data.
It should be noted that only Attach file can be used to finally get the contents of the attachment in Flow.
What is your current progress? There are a lot of threads in the community that deal with attachment content and handle XML data.
Please refer to the following thread and see if it helps:
If you have any questions, just ask.
Thank you @v-bacao-msft 🙂
I think you're pointing me in the right direction. I use the xml in compose as input/output however, seems I'm off the track with compose 2 with the following error:
Unable to process template language expressions in action 'Compose_2' inputs at line '1' and column '2654': 'The template language function 'xpath' expects two parameters: an XML object and an XPath expression. The function was invoked with '1' parameter(s). Please see https://aka.ms/logicexpressions#xpath for usage details.'.

I'll try to play a bit to see where I go wrong, as this is new to me 🙂
Hi @Sanel ,
Could you provide an sample data of Xml data? What you are currently offering seems to be a part of it.
