assign manager "dynamically"

The Assign Manager action for Azure Ad lets me assign a person as a manager for a user. But is it possible to make this more "dynamic" - I mean, if the manager leaves the organization, each Flow needs to be re-configured manually, and it would be nice to have this updated automatically.

 

The two options I've come up with are:

  1. add the manager to an Azure security group, and assign the group as the manager in the Flow - this will not work, I guess?
  2. create a list with an person picker field and a "User Id" field, create a second Flow that fetches the Id of the manager and updates the item in "User Id" column; then tell the "Assign manager Flow" to fetch the "User Id" into the "Manager" field.

Are there any better solutions?

Re: assign manager "dynamically"

hi @MrtnM  what you can do is create a sharepoint list with the emails of your admins then create 2 flows, the first one when a item is created so you can add the property admin and the second one when a file is deleted the you can convert to a normal user.

Re: assign manager "dynamically"

Hello,

You could create a list in SharePoint and have the flow go into that list and grab the email.
