Dynamic content (lookup) returns empty

Hi,

 

I am trying to do a flow where folder is generated under existing folder when flow is run.

But my dynamic content returns empty. I guess is that it has something to do with being a lookup field, but I have no idea how to "turn it to string"

Hi @kingslowpoke ,

 

Please add a Compose before the "Create new folder" action to save the Primary contact, and run the flow to check if the output in the Compose action is null. 

Or please check from the "Get record" action t see if the output of the Primary contact is null.

 

Best regards,

Alice

Hi, 

 

I tried compose and get record without success. Get records shows the entity as GUID, so it is not Null.

I was mistaken, the primary contact is entity type Customer instead of lookup. Lookup values work as they should. But it still turns up empty.


Hey @kingslowpoke 

 

 

Could you please share some screenshots on how your Flow is set up.

 

Kind regards

 

Tom
