The object is under “triggeroutputs”, so accessing it is easy:

@triggerOutputs()[‘queries’][‘paramname’]

You can either access the value directly or store it in a variable for later use.

If you need to handle null-values, you add a ?-sign where you usually do but omitting that gives you a good way to handle missing values. If your Logic App needs a value to function, you have to make sure it is submitted.
