Update Item with Multi-Person Select

Hello,

 

I'm receiving a flow failure on a flow that updates an item when a specific status is set on the referenced item in sharepoint list. 

 

There are 4 mandatory fields that Update Item requires me to input - ID, Issue Observation, Expected Functionality, and Assigned Owner Claims

 

The first three I am fine with - as I'm using Dynamic Content.

 

Assigned Owner Claims is where I'm getting stuck. The reason why it is confusing is because the field is a multi select sharepoint person field, so I can't just insert "Assigned Owner" as the value (as there could be multiple values). I've tried Initializing Variable on both the email/display name/claims dynamic contents - the flow failed upon hitting that condition (claims gave me a flow error). 

 

If you could help me solve this, I would be very appreciative!

Hi - its a column from the same list. SharePoint tracker I was referencing had two multiselect person fields. 

 

However, I actually figured out how to get the flow to run. I needed to do an append array variable and write 

 

{

"claims": Assigned Owner Claims (dynamic content)

}

 

in the append array field (for both Assigned Owner and Assigned Developer). And then use the variable in the array section of "Update Item".

Hi @Jpcarpent ,

 

I noticed that you want to update the multiple-select person column "Assigned Owner Claims", data from "Assigned Owner".

Is this a column from another list, or some other source?

 

Would you mind sharing a screenshot of your flow and the structure of your sharepoint list?

This will be of great help to my subsequent testing to provide a suitable solution to your issue.

 

Best Regards,

Wearsky
