add assignee name from planner to adaptive card in teams

trying my hand at adaptive cards for the first time, and looking to have an adaptive card post to teams when a new planner task is created. but i can't seem to get it to pick up who the task is assigned to. At best i can get the 'user ID' string of numbers, or nothing filled at all but i was hoping for display name. is this possible and any guidance on this?

Hi @jseaward,


You could use the Get user action of Azure AD connector by inputting the user ID, then you will get more information about the user, including name:

hey thanks. i'm not sure this is what i'm looking for. I want it to pull the user name from the planner task. so it should automatically identify who created the planner task without any manual input
