Problem with HTTP GET xml parsing


I have problem with parsing XML from our national index of companies and entrepreneurs. Below is example of that XML which I GET from HTTP request. For example I need to get only <dtt:Nazev_obce> which is name of a city. I tried to use this formula in compose:



xpath(xml(body('HTTP')), './/*[local-name()="properties"]/*[local-name()="Nazev_Obce"]/text()')


My flow run without error but in the end I see [ ] on input of  the compose and [ ] on the output which is weird.



Source XML:


<are:Ares_odpovedi odpoved_datum_cas="2018-07-24T13:42:57" odpoved_pocet="1" odpoved_typ="Standard" vystup_format="XML" xslt="klient" validation_XSLT="/ares/xml_doc/schemas/ares/ares_answer/v_1.0.0/ares_answer.xsl" xsi:schemaLocation="" Id="ares">
            <are:Obchodni_firma>Asseco Central Europe, a.s.</are:Obchodni_firma>
                    <dtt:Nazev_okresu>Hlavní město Praha</dtt:Nazev_okresu>
                    <dtt:Nazev_mestske_casti>Praha 4</dtt:Nazev_mestske_casti>

Re: Problem with HTTP GET xml parsing

I have Sharepoint powerapps form with blank text fields -> user will write "ID" of company and click on "Fill information about company" -> that button will start Flow and that Flow finds information about company from ID -> Flow will return values from that search like "City", "Adress" etc.
