An array in Filter Query

Hi, I want to filter items using an array variable from another list. The query would be something like this: client eq 'a' or client eq 'b' or client eq 'c' ... where list of clients comes from another sharepoint. Any ideas?

You can't use an array in your filter query.  I suggest using a string variable.  Loop through the array and append

client eq '[current array value here]'  or   

in each loop.

In the last loop, don't add the or at the end.

Substitute the current value in the array from Dynamic properties for [current array value here].


In my example, please note that there is a space after or in the append to string action.

Thank you for sharing this, I am trying to follow along but having an issue.


Flow save failed with code 'InvalidTemplate' and message 'The template validation failed: 'The inputs of template action 'Append_to_string_variable' at line '1 and column '2469' is invalid. Action 'Apply_to_each' must be a parent 'foreach' scope of action 'Append_to_string_variable' to be referenced by 'repeatItems' or 'items' functions.'.'."


What would cause that error?

Thanks a lot for your solution. That worked for me.
