Int Expression

Hi Power Automate community,

 

I am using a flow to respond back to PowerApps. I have a PowerApps trigger and than Get Items from SharePoint. The Get Items from SharePoint requires an ID, but this ID is only applicable for the ID of SharePoint itself. I want the Get Items ID to be another ID which is for example Client_ID. This Client_ID I want to be able to specify it in a TextInput and thereafter for flow to return the data for that Client_ID. But when I enter the Power Automate code in the Onselect button, it won't let me enter the TextInput name. It says it expects 0.

Can someone help me?

There's no LookUp in Flow like there is in PowerApps, but you can do a similar thing with the Odata filter in the Get items action.

 

Click Show advanced options in the Get items and in the Filter Query, you can put some parameters with which to filter by:

Use the internal column names. If your column has a space and you created it in Modern view by doing Add column in the column headers, then remove the Space, e.g Column Name is ColumnName. If you created the column as a site column or a list column in the site settings or list settings then the space is replaced by _x0020_, e.g Column Name becomes Column_x0020_Name as in my example below.

 

If the column you're searching is a string (Single line of text) or date then enclose the filter term in single quotes e.g Column_x0020_Name eq 'FilterTerm' but if the column is numeric, then omit the quotes e.g Column_x0020_Name eq 12. In the screen shot above the example is a numeric value, without the single quotes around the dynamic content.

If you're sure your search will only deliver one result, then in the next action, do Get item, and in the ID input of that, go first(body('Get_items')?['value'])?['ID'] in the expression editor

You will now have all the dynamic content from the item you found with your filter. Of course you can skip the Get item and go straight to Update item, but if your list has several required columns, it's easier to first do the Get item so you can easily fill the required fields with dynamic content from the Get item.

 

I hope this helps. Good luck.

Hi @JB0007 

 

Could you please explain when I enter the Power Automate code in the Onselect button? Where is this onselect button. In your powerapp?

Hi @abm  thanks for the reply. 

 

Yes the code is in the Onselect button, for example Flow.Run() and I need to specify the Get Item ID which should be Flow.Run(TextInput1.Text). But according to the error the Run function is not expecting any value.

@abm  sure,

As you can see, it is a Power Apps trigger and when I enter the textbox it showed me this error. Further, in the integer expression I have code it from scratch. Most of the times when I am using an expression, it let me use an expression it let me choose from the dynamics but in this case it haven't.

Hi @JB0007 

 

Remove the existing flow connection from your PowerApp and add it again. Looks like there is a refresh issue here.

 

Thanks

@abm  I have tried it but unfortunately it keeps doing the same thing.

 

Maybe I need to change the code in expression?

Hi @JB0007 

 

What happens when you set the code flow.run is that shows (preview) it expects any parameter?

@abm 

 

it gives me this error:

 

FlowPower7.png

Add a Compose action into the flow, straight after the trigger. In it, find "Ask in PowerApps" dynamic content. Now save and then back in your App, remove the flow from the app and re-add it. The output of the Compose action can be used in the ID field of the Get Item action.

Of course you can put "Ask in PowerApps" directly in the ID field of Get item, but it locks you into a particular data type, while Compose is data type: any.

 

Hi @WillPage , thanks for the reply.

 

I have tried with the compose input in the ID field but it will not return any values. Now, after the compose input I have insert a Filter function to filter the Get Items lists on the value in the compose inputs, but I don't know what to do next in order to get the ID that correspond the value in compose inputs. Do you know how can I insert a function that is similar to LookUp in Flow?

Hi @JB0007 

 

Believe PowerApp is passing the id and your flow is failing to get the items? Could you post a screenshot of the filter of your Get items?

 

Thanks

Hi @abm  I have changed my Flow and I have create a new one from scratch. This is my flow:

 

Untitled3.png

 

Untitled4.pngUntitled5.png

 

I have an put a code in my Onselect: 

ClearCollect(NewCollection, PowerFlow.Run(Value(TextInput1.Text)))

But when I click to see my collection it only says "true". I want to show the name and more details.

 

Thanks in advance.

There's no LookUp in Flow like there is in PowerApps, but you can do a similar thing with the Odata filter in the Get items action.

Hi @JB0007 

 

Looks like you int expression issue is solved now. Check the flow run history and see the response body (last step of your flow)?

The best way to make sure you know what's going on in the News & Announcements, to blogs you follow, or forums and galleries you're interested in is to subscribe! These subscriptions ensure you receive automated messages about the most recent posts and replies. Even better, there are multiple ways you can subscribe to content and boards in the community! (Please note: if you have created an AAD (Azure Active Directory) account you won't be able to receive e-mail notifications.)   Subscribing to a Category  When you're looking at the entire category, select from the Options drop down and choose Subscribe.     You can then choose to Subscribe to all of the boards or select only the boards you want to receive notifications. When you're satisfied with your choices, click Save.     Subscribing to a Topic You can also subscribe to a single topic by clicking Subscribe from the Options drop down menu, while you are viewing the topic or in the General board overview, respectively.     Subscribing to a Label Find the labels at the bottom left of a post.From a particular post with a label, click on the label to filter by that label. This opens a window containing a list of posts with the label you have selected. Click Subscribe.     Note: You can only subscribe to a label at the board level. If you subscribe to a label named 'Copilot' at board #1, it will not automatically subscribe you to an identically named label at board #2. You will have to subscribe twice, once at each board.   Bookmarks Just like you can subscribe to topics and categories, you can also bookmark topics and boards from the same menus! Simply go to the Topic Options drop down menu to bookmark a topic or the Options drop down to bookmark a board. The difference between subscribing and bookmarking is that subscriptions provide you with notifications, whereas bookmarks provide you a static way of easily accessing your favorite boards from the My subscriptions area.   Managing & Viewing Your Subscriptions & Bookmarks To manage your subscriptions, click on your avatar and select My subscriptions from the drop-down menu.     From the Subscriptions & Notifications tab, you can manage your subscriptions, including your e-mail subscription options, your bookmarks, your notification settings, and your email notification format.     You can see a list of all your subscriptions and bookmarks and choose which ones to delete, either individually or in bulk, by checking multiple boxes.     A Note on Following Friends on Mobile Adding someone as a friend or selecting Follow in the mobile view does not allow you to subscribe to their activity feed. You will merely be able to see your friends’ biography, other personal information, or online status, and send messages more quickly by choosing who to send the message to from a list, as opposed to having to search by username.
