Action for checking Mail Nickname

I am trying to create O365 Groups with Flow and the Azure AD action below works as expected:

However, is there an action for resolving if the mail nickname already exists? The problem is that in the flow, if this fails because the nickname already exists then the flow fails and I cannot update the calling item.

Hi @morgade1,

 

I have made a test on my side and there is no any way to check if the mail nickname already exists in microsoft flow currently.

 

If you would like this feature to check if the mail nickname already exists to be added in Microsoft Flow, please submit an idea to Flow Ideas Forum:

https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Flow-Ideas/idb-p/FlowIdeas

 

In addition, could you please explain more details about the "update the calling item" that you mentioned?

 

If the "update the calling item" is some actions under the "Create Group" action, and you want those actions could also run even if the "Create Group" action run failed, you could configure those action run after the "Create Group" action has run failed as below:

Best regards,

Alice

The Run After doesn't work if the site is restricted.  Even thought the status shows a 403, the switch statement I have after the attempt doesn't get trapped on look at the switch statement.  By the way, my statement before the fail is passing a SiteURL to get lists, which returns 200, 403 and 404. However the run after is not hitting the switch statement and is ending the flow.
