Now I decode html encoded string by Azure Functions.

and use the function from Microsoft Flow by HTTP.

and I hope Html Decode feature in Microsoft Flow, for lower cost, lower programming skill.


#r "Newtonsoft.Json"

using System;
using System.Net;
using Newtonsoft.Json;

public static async Task<object> Run(HttpRequestMessage req, TraceWriter log)

    string jsonContent = await req.Content.ReadAsStringAsync();
    dynamic data = JsonConvert.DeserializeObject(jsonContent);

    if (data.encodedString == null) {
        return req.CreateResponse(HttpStatusCode.BadRequest, new {
            error = "Please pass encodedString properties in the input object"

    return req.CreateResponse(HttpStatusCode.OK, new {
        decodedString = WebUtility.HtmlDecode($"{data.encodedString}")


Input sample:

    "encodedString": "A &amp; B &lt; C"


Output sample:


    "decodedString":"A & B < C"
