How to parse a text response from a Flow and back to the Power App?

I swear, it's probably the simplest things I ask about but made more difficult due to the way Microsoft built the interface for building these things. But here's my question ::


I have a Flow that runs and makes an API call. The response ** is NOT ** JSON formatted. It is simply a text string.


I want to pass that text string back to the Power App and display it in a TextInput field.


Which step do I need to add after the 'HTTP' step where the request is made, in order to get this data back? I cannot figure this out!

Not applicable

Not come across that before. 


However surely the response from an HTTP call will still be: Response Status and Response Body basically.

So your text string will come back in Response Body  [body]  and you'll set a string variable equal to it, won't you?

(rather than perhaps parsing JSON to get out various elements, or just storing/processing JSON as required).


Or have I got the wrong end of the stick?
