Often I see the need to manage URIs when creating a flow. Power Automate has 6 operations available that can make your life easier.
Rather than using split function to split a URI, there are better options available.
The functions available in Flow are:
In my examples I will use the following uri:
the uri Host function gives the host of the uri. So in my example when I run uriHost(…) I will get veenstra.me.uk
The uriPath funciton gives the /about part of my uri.
The uriPathAndQuery will return everything after the uriHost.
the uriPort function will return the port, not only if it has been sepcifically specified within the uri but also like in my example 443 will be returned as I specified an https based uri.
The uriScheme function returns everything in fornt on of the hostname from my uri. e.g. http or http.
Rather than using the split function on the “?” within the output from the earlier mentioned uriPathAndQuery function there is also a uriQuery function that does this for you.
