Office 365 Users - Search for users - partial email search not working

I am attempting to use the Office 365 Users - Search for users to search for users with a specific domain. For example, I want all users with email addresses that end with @email.org

 

When I search on a complete email it returns just fine. When I do a partial search on a name such as David, no problem, returns all expected users. When I do a partial search on a term like mith (S is purposefully removed) it will return all Smith's in our system. But when I try a partial email it returns nothing.

 

Is there a way to have Office 365 Users - Search for users successfully search on partial email addresses?

 

Thank you!

Hi @Hyggins,

 

You could use Search for users to get all the user information, and then use Filter array to get all the user information of the Email address containing the specified domain.

Re: Office 365 Users - Search for users - partial email search not working

Hello @v-bacao-msft,

 

Thank you so much for this reply and example! Unfortunately, this will not work in my case. We have well over 1000 users and the Search for users throws an error if I go over 999. So I was trying to find out how to use the search action itself to limit the output to below 1000.

 

Currently, using a method very similar to the one you posted, the Search it pulls the first 999 users. Of those users about 230 make it through the @email.org filtering process. This only gets me about half way through first names that begin with J.

 

I was hoping there would be some other options with the Search for user action.

 

Thanks again for your post!
