Power Automate Fundamentals # 29: Usage of Greater Function in Power Automate

Introduction:

In Power Automate, generic arithmetic operations like Greater will be used to validate provided integer values. As an example, an integer variable used to work with Greater function.

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 Greater Function and take initialize variable and name it as Set number variable as 10 with the following fields

Name :  Number

Type :  Integer

Value : 10

as shown in the below figure.

Step 4:

After Step 3, take compose action and name it as Verify number is greater than 15 and provide

Inputs: greater(value: integer|float|string, compareTo: integer|float|string)

As

greater(variables(‘Number’),15)

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

Step 5:

After Step 4, take compose variable and name it Set the Verify number is greater than 10 and provide

Inputs :     greater(variables(‘Number’),10)

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

Step 6:

After Step 5, take compose variable and name it as Verify number is greater than 9 and provide

Inputs : greater(variables(‘Number’),9)

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 Greater function so that basic comparison between integers in power automate can be done easily.
