Hi @Anonymous,

 

These User IDs are store in the User entity, you could use List records action to find John Doe's user ID, then use the ID to update the owner, for example:

item()?['ItemInternalId']

Hi @Anonymous ,

 

When you open any record in D365 it has following format

 

https://yourcompany.crm.dynamics.com/main.aspx?appid=xxxxxxxx&forceUCI=1&pagetype=entityrecord&etn=entity&id=recordid

 

So when you open the user which you want to hard code just open that particular record and grab the last piece after id=

 

Thanks

I've found that, if Owner is to be updated in a flow, the Owner Type must be updated along with it:

 

see   https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-automate/connection-dynamics365

(there is similar requirement for updating 'customer' and 'regarding' fields).

 

To use the team or user name, use 'list records first', with a filter:

Use the 'Update a Record' step, with owner fields set:

Hi @Anonymous ,

 

You can use update record action and in owners part use /systemusers(guid) or /teams(guid) if you want to assign it to specific team

I don't quite follow... it's a team owner that I want to use.  So, /teams(guid)… I assume I need the guid for the specific team, but how do I get it?  And are you being specific about entering it as "/teams(12345)" ?
