Hi @cadone 

The return data type is an array, even if an array only contains one item it's still an array and therefor when you use the dynamic data it will always add an 'Apply to each' loop

You need to use the first() expression to stop the 'Apply to each' loop from being created , for example:

1.jpg

Expression:

first(outputs('Search_for_users_(V2)')?['body/value'])?['DisplayName']

To obtain a different value you need to change the 'DisplayName' for your desired property:
