Usage Of Range Function In Power Automate

Introduction

In Power Automate, at times we need to have an array with integers starting from the specified index for doing different operations in the design of online exams or quizzes to provide random questions this function would be useful.

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.

Note

  1. Make sure to save and run the flow whenever you try expressions.
  2. As an example, I have considered this array, one can also use this range function in Apply to each action
  3. MS documentation is found here

Conclusion

In this way, we can easily get an array with integers starting from the specified index in Power Automate flow.
