Support for regex - either in conditions or as an action with capture groups exposed

It would be really good to have support for regular expressions.

 

This could be surfaced in the UI ideally in both conditions and actions.

 

A conditional regex would just test whether a string matched against a regex.

An action regex would expose capture groups.

Status: Under Review

This is a great suggestion - we are trying to identify a way to safely run regex in Flow.

I have processes where I need to remove timestamps and reformat email attachments before storing them into sharepoint, regex would really help here.

Agreed - 

And to clarify - if I understand correctly, the regex patterns supported by office 365 transport rules do not apply to flow, correct?

Any updates on regex? I really need it. For instance i have an email adress like "Ramazan_BIYIK <ramazan.biyik@outlook.com>"  I want to take email section between '<' and '>' . I can't take it with json parse or html conversion so i need regex.
