How to check for empty or null SharePoint field values in Power Automate

If you are using Power Automate with SharePoint Online list or library data and need to check if a field is empty or null, then you can use the @empty function.

First, add a Condition and add the field you want to check.

Next, click on the "Edit in advanced mode" link.


Next, you will replace the @equals function with the @empty function.

It should look like this: @empty(triggerbody()?['Title']).

  • The triggerbody(), in this case, is what triggered the flow. This may be different depending on where in your Flow your field is coming from.
  • The Title is the name of the field.
  • The function returns true if the field is empty, allowing you to perform different logic if the field is empty or contains a value.
