Hi @Haraziym 

 

In your variable with the JSON declare it as a String. Then use a compose with the following formula:

json(variableName)

 

After this, in the loop you can access each value using, in the compose:

item()

 This will fetch the current item. If you want to fetch the item that has the key "2017" you can do in the compose:

items('Loop')?['2017']

 

If I have answered your question, please mark your post as Solved.

Hi

Thanks for the reply, that will work if the item is declared , what i need to fetch each item dynamically i.e. 2017,2018, 2019. 

 

items('Loop')?[item()]

 

i tried this but gives an error .

 

Hi @Haraziym 

 

The item() should contain both values. Then you can parse them easily.

 

If it returns an error message please paste it here so that I can help you
