Connector Search User - User not found - Applying logic for User not found

Hello 

Am trying to apply logic for a case whereby a user may not be found when using the connector Search User. The body returns [] for when a user is not found.

Nonetheless I have tried to apply the following logic and still no luck, such as 

equals(length(body('Search_for_users')), 0)

equals(length(body('Search_for_users')), 0)

 

 

To stop the process from looping, I have put in a condition if Display Name is not equal to "Input field" then send me a notification.

The flow does not ever get to this point but seems to execute the "no" condition

Basically, if user is not found I want the next step to be send me a notification. Has anyone been able to apply logic when user not found ? At this stage body contains [ ] 

 

Any guidance on this would be much appreciated.

 

Thanks

Hi @cxc2 

 

Use condition action in Flow

 

length(body('Search_for_users')) is equal to 0
length(body('Search_for_users')) - expression

Hello Reza

 

Thanks for your feedback. I have tried to apply the logic but still does not work. Irrespective if a valid user name has been entered, the flow seems to loop through a list of names. I had to cancel the flow as I was worried that it was looping and sending off incorrect emails to users.
