Connector Input variables (Dynamic Content) have dissappeared

I've created this flow, which cycles through the contents of a table and sends out emails. It worked fine. You can see in the attached image that the variable refers to the "Apply_To_Each" connector.

However, I wanted to swap the position of one of the variables in the subject line. When I go back to edit the flow, all the variables have dissappeared (they dont appear anywhere down the popup list).

 

Could someone tell me how to rectify this?

Re: Connector Input variables (Dynamic Content) have dissappeared

Hi @v-litu-msft ,

That sounds like a bug. I've been able to get around it by typing in the detailed expression "items(Apply_to_Each['Variable'])", which then shows it as a regular variable once you set it up.

 

Would be nice to just be able to select it from the drop down though.

Re: Connector Input variables (Dynamic Content) have dissappeared

Hi @Naz,

 

I think it is just a design shortcoming, not a bug exactly.

Yes, you can use the expression items(Apply_to_Each)?['Variable'] or item()?['Variable'] to get them.

As a workaround, you can consider the method that parse JSON again, and then to get select them in the drop down.

Hi @Naz,

 

This issue will happen when some action added, you can add a Parse JSON before the send email, and then put current item into it.Annotation 2019-11-04 095005.png
