XML not supported any longer?

Hi all, 

 

I just started playing with Microsoft Flow and would like to create a PDF file with data from an XML file. (Header with company logo and address of client, table lab results, footer, etc.)

 

I have been reading some (outdated?) posts about working with XML. They were talking about the "XML Data" and "Use xpath" actions. But for some reason I can't find any of these actions myself. Are they deprecated? Even the documentation is just talking about JSON.

 

A blog post:
http://buildsharepointconcepts.blogspot.com/2018/05/parse-xml-using-microsoft-flow.html

 

Official documentation about data operations:
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/flow/data-operations

 

Can someone please help me in the right direction?

 

Cheers,
Robert

Hi @Power_Robert,

 

The "XML Data" and "Use xpath" actions are renamed Compose action, not special actions.

 

And if you input the expression, you need to click the blank and type function in the Expression.
