Add permissions to SharePoint using Microsoft Flow



I need to grant "Read" permissions to new users to access our SharePoint site. This is the approach I am taking.


1) User requests access to the sharepoint site.

2) Add the user to a SharePoint List.

3) When an item is added to the list, trigger a flow which sends approval to a manger to approve the user.

4) Once approved, Grant Permissions on SharePoint Site using the Plumsail SP Connector - "Change Site Permissions".

5) Send email to the user requesting access.


I am hitting the following error:


  "error": {
    "message""Can't resolve the username:"
