Flow times out if setting people picker field to a SharePOint group name inside create item action

Hi,

 

I have a flow that triggers when a new item is added to a list, it creates tasks in the task list, I have create item actions in place for the same. 

 

For some reason, I am not able to set Assigned to field to SP group name called 'EM-Initiate'. Its a people picker field allowing user and groups with multiple selections. Below is what I am using, but the flow takes long and then times out.

Can someone please help me how i can set people picker field to a SharePoint group name for adding a new task, thanks in advance.

Hi @dmistry ,

 

First please make sure that you have set this field to allow selection of Groups in List.

Then you can create a new flow and select group from the drop-down list when configuring this field.

If you want to enter group manually, you need to enter Group id instead of Group Name. Like:

Hi @dmistry ,

 

You could go to office 365 admin center to get the group id of the group.

Hi @dmistry ,

 

Hmm, my method is applicable to SharePoint Online. I'm afraid I don't have an environment here to test SharePoint 2019. Please consider contacting Microsoft Support to assist you in solving your problem.

Another method is that you can create a similar task in the list, and then assign the task to a specified group, and then you can get the details of this task through the Get item action, I think this will contain Claims of this group, you can configure this Claims in Create item action and check whether it is valid.
