filter json array

Hello,

 

I have a json table with 2 entries for roles and mail, I would like to retrieve in this table only the mail related to the admin role.

Here is what my json returns

[
  {
    "mail": [
{
"mail": "Mail1@mail.com"
},
{
"mail": "Mail2@mail.com"
}
],
"roles": [
{
"roles": "admin"
},
{
"roles": "user"
}
]
}
]

Hi @AlexisVossloh 

 

It won't.  You have to type an expression item()?['role'] - in the comments.

Hi again @AlexisVossloh 

 

If you're looking to get the first email each time, you would use something like:

outputs('Array')?[0]?['mail']?[0]?['mail']

Hi again @DamoBird365 , my project is not easy

 

my content is dynamic so for example I have 10 mails and 10 roles, 5 admin roles, I would like to have an output table with the 5 mails that have an admin role

Select is made up of the following:

FROM range(0,length(outputs('Array')?[0]?['mail']))

EMAIL outputs('Array')?[0]?['mail']?[item()]?['mail']

ROLE outputs('Array')?[0]?['roles']?[item()]?['roles']

 

Output of Filter array is...

If there are multiple emails, you can use the select action to return an array of emails and join as before in the solution provided Solved: Re: approval problem with dynamic data mail - Power Platform Community (microsoft.com)

 

Note I have used [0] instead of first().  Different way to achieve same thing.  This video https://youtu.be/6nJSUNh579w is worth watching if you want to learn a bit about arrays.
