Excel Get Row Key Values from Power APP


I have created an App that stores data in excel. 

It adds a row and assigns it "__PowerAppsId__".

How can I match the Key-Value below with the above __PowerAppsId__?

I don't want to ask power app, I want it to be dynamic

Most likely you will need to create a variable in power apps and pass the name to power automate.

see the link here how to pass arguments to power automate.

Or you can use try using the expression TriggerBody() to get the cryptic header information from the Power app trigger. Then maybe use JSON to get what you want out of it.

This is how I tested it.

I used text inputs to and passed that to the flow using a OnSelect method tied to a button. (In Power App)

Took a couple times, for some reason, updating the flow and updating the power app to get them in sink. Eventually it worked.
