HTML Body to String for use in search for users

Hi All,

 

So I'm triggering  flow using a HTTP push request made by a chatbot. the chatbot uses flow to send an email to the users manager letting them know they are off sick. Flow seemed to be a simpler solution than having to code chatbot dialogue. 

 

The issue i have is that when I hit the flow from the BOT I pass in the user principle name but I get all of the UTF8 characters, which dont work with seach for users. Is there a kooky bit of workflow definition that I could use to remove the UTF8 , only leaving the user ID to pass to search for users

 

the flow is this with the issue shown below  - many thanks for any advice you could offer

Hi All

 

I've solved this one myself. I used variables and then parsed these  into an array, after that just added further variables and the array  position to extract the required info from the request body

@Anonymous,

 

Are you saying that the text ITCSCJ is the actual username?  I would think you could use a combination or one of the string functions to get the data you want (REPLACE, SUBSTRING, etc).  Can you paste the whole output?
