How to identify fields in API request body with same name

Hi,

 

Apologies in advance if this is a stupid question - I've created a custom connector using an API for one of our line of business apps but I have a problem as the body of the request has multiple fields with the same name.  Once these have been imported into the connector, how do I know which field is which?

 

Here is a screenshot of the request body:

And this is how it appears in PowerAutomate:

I know I can rename them in PowerAutomate but is there an easy way of determining which 'id' and 'identifier' field is which?

You shouldn't need to. When you invoke this custom connector from powerautomate, you will just pass it a JSON string as Body; it won't show up as a collection of fields. As long as you know how to build your JSON, you don't need to worry about which id is which.
