Update Multiple user display name to SharePoint list

I have an approval workflow, in which I am fetching multiple approvers from a SharePoint group and assigning them the approval, the approval actions work fine as expected, all the users are assigned with an approval. 


The challenge I have is with updating/creating a list item – in which I am trying to capture all the user display name to who the approval was sent-

People or group column (Allow multiple selections) is enabled  –



I end up getting this error


"message": "The specified user abc@email address; could not be found.\r\nclientRequestId: 202b9193-fd18-4169-9524-6271791dcbe8\r\nserviceRequestId: 202b9193-fd18-4169-9524-6271791dcbe8"
