Adding People to People and Groups field only via ID possible?

Hi,

 

I have a "simple" topic. I need to add people via Flow into a People and Groups field.

I'm doing that via Rest API Post => /_api/web/lists/GetByTitle('ListName')')/items

and struggle as mentioned here http://jbarkes.blogspot.com/2016/01/user-person-or-group-fields-with-rest.html?_sm_au_=iVV6bcfWMsPT6...

 

The mentioned solution works to add the user ID which got assigned in the MemberShipGroup => /_layouts/15/people.aspx?MembershipGroupId=0

 

BUT how can I get an Id of a person when this person has never / not yet been added to a MemberShip Group?

 

How can I add any user (and multiple) to a People and Group field?

 

Thanks,

Stefan

Hi @cgru3eejc2 ,

 

Yes,there is no any solution for Multiple selections column currently, it is not supported in Microsoft flow currently.

Hi @cgru3eejc2 ,

 

Do you want to add people to Person column in sharepoint list?

Do you know the email of the people?

Hi Alice,

 

Correct, I want to add people to Person column in sharepoint list. And at the moment I intend only to add company internal people so I know the e-mail.

Hi @cgru3eejc2 ,

 

Please refer to screenshot below to create the flow:

Please choose "Enter custom value" in the Person claims column, and enter the email address with type below:

i:0#.f|membership|EmailAddress

Hi Alice,

 

Thanks for your detailed information and how to.

 

This works fine for single user field, but when "Allow multiple selections" is enabled than the field ("Person claim" from your example) is not visible anymore and can't be set.

Any idea for multiple people selections fields?

Here it's exactly described: https://www.about365.nl/2018/08/06/updating-a-multi-people-field-in-sharepoint-with-microsoft-flow/

 

Seems I'm not the only one struggling with that. Unbelievable that this is not supported or possible... really?
