Create Outlook contact from a Sharepoint List

While Building a Flow that is triggered by the creation of an element in a Sharepoint list that has two actions:

  • Creates an Element in another Sharepoint list
  • Creates an Outlook Contact

I have encountered with this error

 

 

 

 

 

{

  "status"400,

  "message""EmailAddress or ItemId must be included in the request.\r\nclientRequestId: 19289a1d-57c0-445a-8402-2e0baec3ec60\r\nserviceRequestId: 63faa4bd-6fc5-435f-9a28-931aeb631be9",

  "source""office365-ncus.azconn-ncus.p.azurewebsites.net"

}

 

Help to troubleshoot this error is appreciated

Re: Create Outlook contact from a Sharepoint List

Hi @rebeccas 

 

The Create a Contact action uses the Outlook connection that is provided in the flow. So when a user triggers a flow, then the connection to outlook provided there is used to create the contact. For other users, you can add run as users to the flow and set the connections to provided by the run only user and when the run only user triggers it with their connection, then the contact is created for them. 

 

Apart from this, Flow currently does not support an action to create a contact for another user directly in the scope of Outlook actions. 

 

Hope this Helps!

Re: Create Outlook contact from a Sharepoint List

Hi @DanielMagMat,

 

Could you please share a bit more about the "Create contact" action within your flow?

Do you type an email address within the Email Address field of the "Create contact" action of your flow?

 

The error message told that the EmailAddress or ItemId must be included in the request. I have made a test on my side and don't have the issue that you mentioned. My flow's configuration as below:17.JPG

The flow works successfully as below:18.JPG

 

Please take a try to clear cache of your browser and re-create your flow to check if the issue is solved. In addition, if the issue still exists, please consider take a try to type an email address within the Email addresses field of the "Create contact" action of your flow as below:19.JPG

 

Please also check if you have provided a proper email address within the Email addresses Address -1 field of the "Create contact" action of your flow.

 

 

Best regards,

Kris

Do you know of any way to create contacts for someone else? When an item is created that meets whatever criteria "Create contact"...but for another user (that can either be preset or the criteria set in the orginal SP List)? A user within my organzation of course.

 

I'm not sure if it is possible but I have a need for it if so.
