I am new to Flow but I am a c# programmer. I'm just trying to get around the syntax of how flow works.

1 - I have a process that runs that returns an email address.

2 - I want to compare the found email address with email address metadata I have on a SharePoint document folder.

Sounds pretty simple but I don't know the proper syntax for it.

I am just not sure how to query for the email address from SharePoint efficiently. I have a hard coded test working but need some advice on how to query a list of folders for metadata and only retrieve the matching result.

See below. I think what I am trying is overkill. I am getting a folder list. Then for each item I am trying to compare the properties. I am guessing there has to be a simpler way (a Method) to query the item.

I’m not quite sure what your requirement is. There is no specific action for comparing properties, the comparing process is usually used as a Filter to get the items you need for the next action.

Or you can use the comparison in Condition Control directly to filter the items/files you need to take actions on.

Here’s an example:

Here are some posts which might give you some idea on how to build the flow:

Microsoft Flow: Get files (properties only) of file only in a specific folder.

Get Files (Properties Only) - Look in Sub Folder Only.

  • This looks to be what I need. Thanks.
