More about String in PowerAutomate

The Generate Passwords Efficiently in Power Automate article covers four expressions: Chunk, Range, Join and Rand. The Chunk expression is used to split a string into an array of smaller strings based on the number of characters specified by the user. For example, if you specify a length of 4 characters for each chunk, then “abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz” will be split into “abcd”, “efgh” and so on.

The Range expression allows users to generate a sequence of numbers with different options such as start value, end value and step size (increments). This can be used for generating passwords that contain numeric values or symbols.

The Join expression combines multiple strings together into one single string according to the delimiter specified by the user. This can be useful when creating complex passwords that require special characters or upper/lowercase letters combined together in specific order.

Finally, the Rand expression generates random numbers within a given range which can also be used for generating random password combinations containing alphanumeric or special characters
