How to do a foreach in an json array and append some variable for each item?

I have created a flow. Inside this flow I have some json array like below. I would like to loop into this json array. For each item in this array I would like to append a variable.

 

Json:

 

[{"Date":"21-01-2018","Project":"Project 2","ProjectCode":"12100003","Breakdown":"Start","Status":"Hard","TimeFrom":"09:00","TimeTo":"23:55","Hours":"14.92"},{"Date":"22-01-2018","Project":"Project 3","ProjectCode":"12100004","Breakdown":"Start","Status":"Zacht","TimeFrom":"09:00","TimeTo":"17:00","Hours":"8.00"}]

 

I would like to have at the end some variable like this:

 

21-01-2018<br/>Project 2<br/>12100003<br/><br/>22-01-2018<br/>22-01-2018<br/>Project 3<br/>12100004

 

My target is to add this variable inside the approval task email body. I already using the "Apply for each" action on the json array. Who can tell me how to do this?

Re: How to do a foreach in an json array and append some variable for each item?

Hi @khalidinio,

 

Could you please share a screenshot of your flow's configuration?

Do you want to append the variable ('21-01-2018<br/>Project 2<br/>12100003<br/><br/>22-01-2018<br/>22-01-2018<br/>Project 3<br/>12100004') that you mentioned for each item within the json array?

 

I have made a test on my side and please take a try with the following workaround:

  • Add a proper trigger, here I use Flow Button trigger.
  • Add a Variables-> "Initialize variable" action, Name set to JsonArray, Type set to Array and Value set to the json data that you provided.
  • Add a "Apply to each", input parameter set to JsonArray variable.
  • Within "Apply to each", add a Compose action, Inputs set to following formula:

 

addProperty(item(),'variable1','21-01-2018<br/>Project 2<br/>12100003<br/><br/>22-01-2018<br/>22-01-2018<br/>Project 3<br/>12100004')

 

Note: The addProperty() function returns an object with an additional property.

The flow works successfully as below:19.JPG

 

More details about the addProperty() function, please check the following article and search for it:

Best regards,

Thank you for the solution. It works! I make it work without the compose and addProperty tasks. I initialize a variable and append this variable in the apply for each.
