IF statement for floats and Azure DevOps (ADO)

Hello,

 

I am trying to use Flow to add multiple numbers (floats) together and I need to use an IF statement on every field I want to add together because not all the values are required in Azure DevOps.

 

Here's an example IF statement:

if(empty(body('Get_work_item_details')?['fields']?['Custom_SpInFormsIncorrect']), 0, body('Get_work_item_details')?['fields']?['Custom_SpInFormsIncorrect'])

Unfortunately, the IF statement/empty() function in Flow will only work with integers, strings, and arrays.

Any ideas on how to mitigate?

 

Thanks!

Hey @iivanov 

 

You can use the string function to convert the body (the float value to a string and compare and then update the variable accordingly)

 

Expression:

if(empty(string(variables('e'))),0,variables('e'))

Hi @iivanov,

 

Since the variable only support integer, you can convert it into a string by using the String() function.Annotation 2019-10-22 154746.png
