HI @cardinalpipkin 

 

"Claims" is an object that contains the information of a person. It's the way Power Automate get's the information from SharePoint. But if you want to insert a value in this column you can simply include an email in your Power Automate and the value is automatically converted to a "Claims" object.

 

Makes sense?

Hi,

 

You will need an array of objects that look like this to insert the Claims:

[
{
"Claims": "ricx23@gmail.com"
},
{
"Claims": "svc_account@gmail.com"
}
]
