Power Automate Fundamentals # 28: Usage of GreaterOrEqual Function in Power Automate

Introduction:

In Power Automate, generic arithmetic operations like GreaterOrEqual will be used to compare between values. As an example, Speed Limit with integer value considered to compare with other integer values.

Step 1:

Login to the required Power Apps environment using URL make.powerapps.com by providing username and password and click on Flows on the left-hand side as shown in the below figure.

Step 2:

After Step 1, Click on New Flow and select instant cloud flow and provide the trigger as Manually trigger a flow and click on Create as shown in the below figure.

Step 3:

After Step 2, name flow as GreaterOrEquals Function and take initialize variable and name it as Set Speed Limit value as 40 KM with the following fields

Name :  SpeedLimit

Type :  Integer

Value : 40

as shown in the below figure.

Step 4:

After Step 3, take compose action and name it as Check if Speed Limit is greater or Equal to 35  and provide

Input value : greaterOrEquals(value: integer|float|string, compareTo: integer|float|string)

As

greaterOrEquals(variables(‘SpeedLimit’),35)

and click on ok/ update as shown in the below figure.

Step 5:

After Step 4, take compose variable and name it Set the Check if Speed Limit is greater or Equal to 40 and provide

Inputs :     greaterOrEquals(variables(‘SpeedLimit’),40)

And click on ok/update as shown in the below figure.

Step 6:

After Step 5, take compose variable and name it as Check if Speed Limit is greater or Equal to 45 and provide

Inputs : greaterOrEquals(variables(‘SpeedLimit’),45)

And click on Ok/ Update as shown in the below figure

Step 7:

After Step 6, run and test the flow as shown in the below figure

Note:

  1. Make sure to save and run the flow whenever you try expressions.
  2. MS documentation is found at here

Conclusion: In this way we can use GreaterOrEqual function so that comparisons in power automate can be done easily.
