Passing values from Power Automate to Bot Variables

Hi all,

 

I have some bot variables that I want to set to null at the start of a topic, then later on in the topic I will ask the customer if they want to populate that information. If they don't I want to pass the previously stored null value to a Power Automate cloud flow.  If they answer the question, then that value gets stored.

 

My problem is that I can't get power automate to set the null values to the bot variables, and so it will reroute back to the topic where bot variables are stored and ask for that information again.

 

Thanks.

Hi @Jondoesflow ,

 

It's not available yet.

You can vote on this idea here: Allow PVA to send 'NULL' values to Power Automate - Power Platform Community (microsoft.com)

Hi,

 

It's not even the fact I want to send a null.

 

It could be anything, I just want the ability the update a variable from a Power Automate flow (the value could be n/a or false) and then save that variable value to the bot variable, unless it gets updated by the user inside the conversational flow.
