Create SharePoint group with a specific owner

Hello,

 

When I create a group by specifying the OwnerTitle, it is not taken into account. I do not understand why. Would you have a solution please?

 

My JSON : 

{
    "inputs": {
        "host": {
            "connection": {
                "name": "@parameters('$connections')['shared_sharepointonline_2']['connectionId']"
            }
        },
        "method": "post",
        "body": {
            "method": "POST",
            "uri": "_api/web/sitegroups",
            "headers": {
                "accept": "application/json;odata=verbose",
                "content-type": "application/json;odata=verbose"
            },
            "body": "{ '__metadata': { 'type': 'SP.Group' }, 'Title': '@{variables('grCollab')}', 'OwnerTitle': '@{body('Mettre_à_jour_l''élément')?['Responsable_x0020_client']?['Claims']}'}"
        },
        "path": "/datasets/@{encodeURIComponent(encodeURIComponent(variables('SiteUrl')))}/httprequest",
        "authentication": "@parameters('$authentication')"
    },
    "metadata": {
        "flowSystemMetadata": {
            "swaggerOperationId": "HttpRequest"
        }
    }
}

The body : 

 '__metadata': { 'type': 'SP.Group' }, 'Title': 'Test Collabs 3 - Collaborateurs', 'OwnerTitle': 'i:0#.f|membership|testdv@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx.xxx'}

The output : 

{
  "d": {
    "__metadata": {
      "id": "https://xxxxxxxxxxx.sharepoint.com/sites/Projects/_api/Web/SiteGroups/GetById(67)",
      "uri": "https://xxxxxxxxxxx.sharepoint.com/sites/Projects/_api/Web/SiteGroups/GetById(67)",
      "type": "SP.Group"
    },
    "Owner": {
      "__deferred": {
        "uri": "https://xxxxxxxxxxx.sharepoint.com/sites/Projects/_api/Web/SiteGroups/GetById(67)/Owner"
      }
    },
    "Users": {
      "__deferred": {
        "uri": "https://xxxxxxxxxxx.sharepoint.com/sites/Projects/_api/Web/SiteGroups/GetById(67)/Users"
      }
    },
    "Id": 67,
    "IsHiddenInUI": false,
    "LoginName": "Test FDE Collabs 3 - Collaborateurs",
    "Title": "Test FDE Collabs 3 - Collaborateurs",
    "PrincipalType": 8,
    "AllowMembersEditMembership": false,
    "AllowRequestToJoinLeave": false,
    "AutoAcceptRequestToJoinLeave": false,
    "Description": null,
    "OnlyAllowMembersViewMembership": true,
    "OwnerTitle": "TATA",
    "RequestToJoinLeaveEmailSetting": null
  }
}

Thanks for your help and sorry for my english 😉

Re: Create SharePoint group with a specific owner

I too am trying to do this, but i keep getting the following error:

{
"status": 400,
"message": "An entry without a type name was found, but no expected type was specified. To allow entries without type information, the expected type must also be specified when the model is specified.\r\nclientRequestId: f1578e3e-011b-437f-aaaf-552b6c1d9271\r\nserviceRequestId: 5d303f9f-604a-b000-122c-a2b4f8d6777c",
"errors": [
"-1",
"Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.InvalidClientQueryException"
]
}
 
I don't see any typos.  But there must be one or I'm missing something.
