Trying to use dynamic content in advanced mode filter array

For testing purposes i've placed a text inside a compose step and i want to put what i have in the compose step at advanced mode filter array (@and(outputs('Compose')) ) but it says that the supported type is Boolean and the output is of the type String but if i literally pick what i have inside the compose and place it instead the flow run sucessfully (@and(contains(item()?['column1'], 'test1'),contains(item()?['column1'], 'test2')) ). is there any way i can make this to work without me having to manually copy and paste on the advanced mode on filter array?


Thanks in advance for all the support.

i've found out that i can use compose where the identifiers goes like:

@And(contains(item()?[outputs('Compose_1')], 'outputs('Compose_2')'

but this still doesnt help me much because there can be multiple criterias. is there a way which i can put more than one word to filter? like:

@And(contains(item()?['column1'], 'Excel','English','Power Automate')

or something similar? or a way to construct a loop that is acceptable on power automate advanced mode filter array?
