NodeRED flow to generate a random number and logic based on that


  • NodeRED flow to generate a random number between 0 and 10
  • Number generation start without user interaction and generated every 10 seconds
  • Generate condition for log to debug based on generated value
    • Message should be "Number <the generated random number> is a <Number status> number"
    • Logic : if number is less than 5 then <the generated random number> = "low" else it should be "high"


Sample code

Turn off/ Hide Details panel/ Information Panel on modern SharePoint lists
