Create/update a Person/Group field (Update Item SharePoint) only displays "Claims"

Hi, I'm having an issue when I try to update a SharePoint List using "Update Item" action. 

 

Once I select the Site Address and the List Name, it is displaying all columns in the SharePoint list, but for all the "Person/Group" columns it is displaying only the "Claims" Property and no Dynamic Expression is shown.

 

However, If I select any other Text column, in the Dynamic Expression window i can choose all the properties of the record (Claims, email, fullname, etc)

 

So my questions are:

- Why it is only Displayed "Claims"?

- How Can I update this?

 

Image below for clarification

Thanks

Hi @Sam4 

 

You need to pass the email address of the user that you want to add to that person type column. 

 

If you wanted to add multiple persons and if the column supports that, you can follow this post here: https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Power-Automate-Community-Blog/10-MS-Flow-hacks-troubleshoots-wor... 

 

Hope this Helps!

Hello @Sam4 

I can see in your screenshots that your claims field is a drop down list - please use the drop down and choose the last option named "Enter custom value" - this will then show the dynamic expression 🙂

Kind regards, John

Thanks @yashag2255  and @JohnAageAnderse , it works 🙂
