Parsing JSON in Microsoft Flow

Something that is used a lot in Microsoft Flow is the HTTP request.  Whether you are calling a site’s REST endpoint or an Azure function, or in the case of today a SharePoint REST endpoint you need to be able to do something with the data returned.  The steps to do that are very simple and only require a free tool called Fiddler.  You can download Fiddler here (please note: I have nothing to do with Telerik, it’s just a nice tool I use often).  Go ahead and download the tool and we’ll move forward with the steps parsing JSON in Microsoft Flow

Setting SharePoint List-Item Level Security With Microsoft Flow

As I stated in my previous post I wanted to demonstrate how to do something in SPD Workflows as well as with Microsoft Flow.  In this second part, I am going to be setting SharePoint list-item level security with Microsoft Flow.  The steps are very similar, but I still wanted to provide examples for anyone just working away at some of these types of requirements within their own environments.

Building a Modern SharePoint Solution: Part 9 – Starting a Microsoft Flow from a PowerApp

This is the final post in my series of building a modern SharePoint Solution.  In this post, I will demonstrate starting a Microsoft Flow from a PowerApp.  There are many reason’s why you would want this, but the most often used would likely be to allow the user to update an entry, save it and hold off sending it until they have all the information in place.  There are alternatives of course; like having a Flow wait for a value to change, but I prefer the user experience a button submission gives you.  Special note: Because Flow doesn’t currently allow for multiple triggers for a flow, we won’t be able to use flow created in Part 9 of this series.  However, I do suggest you not remove not remove it because this allows multiple ways to kick off the WF.

Building a Modern SharePoint Solution: Part 8 – Sending a Tweet from Microsoft Flow

In my previous post, I showed you how to set up multiple approvals in a workflow. This post is going to continue along the requirements I set out in part 1 of this series.  I’ll be walking through sending a tweet from a Microsoft Flow.  It’s pretty straightforward.  Microsoft even has it as a template I believe, but I still wanted to illustrate how to do it because this is actually part of a bigger flow and an item in a solution’s requirements.  We’ll be continuing on from where I left off in part 8 of this series, but the steps I have here can be picked up and added to any flow you will be working on.
