Filtering Attachments

I am creating a flow that will save an attachment to a specific file location i have that working just fine,  what i am wondering is if there is a way to say only save the files i want based on extention.

 

For example a new email come's in that has two attachments one is a .pdf and the other is a .docx, is there a condition or switch or anything i could put in my flow to say i want to save the attachment that is a pdf to the file system but ignore the word document (.docx)

 

Any help would be wonderful.  Thank you

Hi @Anonymous,

 

We could add a condition to check if the Attachment name contains the pdf, in the following way:

Doing in this way would only save the pdf file in the proper folder.

Also to add to this is there also a way to ignore email signatures, it seems like when i save attachments to the file system it will also save any images that are in a email signature.

This did work great for me i did expand it more and did advanced conditioning like this  ' @or(contains(item()?['Name'], 'pdf'), contains(item()?['Name'], 'docx'), contains(item()?['Name'], 'xlsx'), contains(item()?['Name'], 'zip'))  '
