Using FLOW http call to create a Team

Hi all,

I've got a Flow that calls the Microsoft Graph API to create a unified group which works fine. Now I'd like to update it with an option to create a Team for that group. I'm trying to use the Beta API which gives me a successful response when I use it in the graph explorer, however when I try to add the HTTP call in my Flow I get a 405 error (specified HTTP method not allowed for the requested target)

There is a "Delay Until" action after the call to create the group which is set for 5 minutes to allow time for things to process before calling the Create Team option. 

I've tried using PUT/POST/PATCH, the URI being called is{varGroupID}/team, varGroupID is a variable containing the ID of the Group created earlier in the flow and the body contains:


  "memberSettings": {

       "allowCreateUpdateChannels": true


  "messagingSettings": {

        "allowUserEditMessages": true,

        "allowUserDeleteMessages": true


  "funSettings": {

         "allowGiphy": true,

         "giphyContentRating": "strict"





Help please!

Re: Using FLOW http call to create a Team

Hi @SuzanneHunt,


Could you please share a full screenshot of the configuration of your flow?

Could you please show more details about the error message?

Is GroupID a body which created earlier in the flow?

405 Error indicates that the HTTP verb is not allowed for the specific URI that an HTTP client has requested.

Have you tried all the methods yet?

More details about troubleshooting HTTP 405 errors, please check the following article:

Please provide more details and we would provide a proper workaround for you.


Best Regards,

Re: Using FLOW http call to create a Team

Hi Barry,

Thanks for your response. This is the first part of the flow that creates the group and works successfully:


This is the next section, there is a pause for 10 mins to allow the group to be created and "bedded in" before I try to create a team from it:


And the details of the HTTP call (which is the bit that fails) are:


I've tried PUT, POST and PATCH and they all give the same error which is:



If I take a GroupID that has been already created and log in to the Graph Explorer and run the PUT request there with the groupid it successfully creates the associated Team


Hope this has the details you are after?
