Catch special characters in a Email subject

Hey all

 

 

Is there any way, just like in PowerApps with the function IsMatch, to catch special characters like these: 

&_,.';:/""!@$%^+=\|<>{} in a subject from an email. I use this email subject as the title for the attachments that comes with the email.

But if there is a special character in the subject the flow stops working.

 

Now I want to exclude these characters or use the \ or regular expression so the characters are taken literally.

 

Kind regards

 

 

Tom

Re: Catch special characters in a Email subject

I solved it by using Plumsail their solution linked here:

You just need to create an account and then you get an api token.

After that you can build your regex easily.

Big thanks to Plumsail

 

Kind regards
