Flow to populate people picker field (with user & group,multiple allowed) manually inside create item action

Hi,

 

I am working with SP on prem 2019 and part of a business process automation, I have to create numerous tasks into a task list based on item submitted into a custom list. However, people picker field values are not collected on the form and need to be manually provided in people picker field using create item.

 

I have People picker configured as User & group with multiple selections allowed. When using one email id to populate for people picker, it runs fine and fails when two emails are entered separated by comma.

When I use only one email Id for a given user or group, it runs fine.
