Microsoft Graph API Not Found

I am building Microsoft Flow for fetching all user and its manager by using Microsoft Graph API. Now I can fetch users very easily and when I try to find manager. Some of the user manager is not defined due to that I get 

Request_ResourceNotFound error. In javascript we have ajax fail option where we handle error. 
 
How we can handle same here. My requirement is to store user info into the SharePoint List with manager id and if manager id is not defined then store user info with manager id as blank. Please to solve the issue

Hi @milind, the actual issue is that the previous step (whilst you are seeing it as failed), it is not failing in Flow, therefore not actually triggering the Not Found action. Instead it is "successfully" returning a failure code. So really, you need to build a condition based on what is being returned from your HTTP action.

 

Reading through your requirement though, is there a particular reason that you wish to use the Graph to achieved your goal? A more simple solution for your Flow might be something like this:

 

Use the "Search for users" action from the O365 Users connector, but don't supply a search criteria. This will list all of the users available to my tenancy. I can then use the Get Manager (V2) action to get the manager for each person returned from my Search. I can then use Scopes to catch any users without a manager (as this will "legitimately fail"). The first scope will contain my logic which I want to perform, the second scope is set to run On Failure, and will contain the actions I want to perform if no manager is found.

 

See if that's an easier way for you to achieve your goal, I've attached the Flow export to this post as well so that you can try it.

Hi @milind ,

 

You could add a parallel branch. A branch is an HTTP action that succeeds, indicating that the corresponding manager was obtained.

The other branch is only executed when the HTTP action fails. You need to set Configure run after.

Hi @milind ,

 

This result is in line with expectations, you just need to continue to configure the expected action under two branch that to execute.

It makes sense. So I make futher development but still I flow throw error

Just point to be noted here I don't have anything in if no condition action, So I put compose and string as fake. 

 

Other wise Flow is doing what I need only thing is that log is showing fail and until I know whenever flow does not run in success then it will send email which will be annoying.

@MattWeston365 

That is so nice of you. I appriciate lot for sending me flow as zip. This looks really good way to get work done, which will reduce lots steps like

  • We don't have to register Azure API 
  • So we don't have to use Graph API
  • I don't have to generate token which decrease runtime and flow will be faster

I am excited, Let me work on it and get back to you. 

@MattWeston365 

Ok I worked on it, I did some changes addition to yours

  • I have more than 488 users and search users brings only 100. So I gave top 600
  • In try I am adding to SharePoint List
  • In catch action I check for particular user id and add to the SharePoint list

But it never run catch Please find snap for it. Kindly let me know my mistake
