Need To Extract Auth Token from Email and then Enter it into Application

I get an email with an authentication token in the body, it’s formatted like this:

Here’s your one-time verification token: 123456

I think I have to use the Get Outlook Mail Message and save the token as a variable. I figured out how to save the entire body as a variable, but not sure how to only extract the token.

Would I need to export the body into an Excel document and then scrape the key from there?

Hi @nick.r

You can extract body details as string and can use regex method or string manipulation to extract the authorization token.

You can try spilting the body text with delimiter as ‘:’

Thanks, I will try that. I also found another post with the same issue and will try that too.

If your are not familiar with Regex syntax or string manipulation, you can directly use UiPath inbuilt activity Matches and SplitString



As per @NIVED_NAMBIAR’s post string Manipulation or Regex will get the job done.

Regex pattern of “\d+” will work.
