Convert an Array to comma separated string in Power Automate

Many times when we have an Array in Power Automate and we want to make it comma separated string in such cases we use loop to iterate each element in an array and append comma, we can avoid this loop and create desired string by using Join function available in Power Automate. My blog will guide you how you can achieve the same. Note : I am using hard code array in my blog, but you can use dynamic array as well Steps: Initialize a variable of type array with [ 'a', 'b', 'c', 'd', 'e' ] as its element. Add a new Compose step and use join function ( join (variables('Array 1'),',') ) to make array a comma separated string as shown below. Join function accepts 2 parameters, first parameter as Array in my case its Array 1 (variable) and second parameter as delimiter in my case I passed ‘,’ as we want to make comma separated string but you can use any delimiter and create your own string. Now, save and execute the flow and check if it

IF function in Power Automate

Many times, in Power automate we set a variable based on some condition and to achieve that, we use condition control action, but we can avoid using action and use If function instead. This blog will guide you on how you can use If function instead to using condition control action. Use Case: When an Account is created in D365 CE, Initialize the variable and set its value as description. If description is unavailable, then set value as NA. Steps: When an Account is created in D365 CE. Add a Compose action and enter if(equals(triggerOutputs()?['body/description'],null),'NA',triggerOutputs()?['body/description']) as expression in Input Field of connector. In above Step (2) it checks if description is null then set “NA” as output else set description as output. Initialize a variable of type string and set its value as Output of compose action. Create an Account and check if we get the desired result. Enjoy!
