how to update a column person or field using rest api



Im having trouble inserting values to person or group using rest api. The values that i am going to insert is coming from a look up list but as you know, sharepoint does not allow to look up a person or group. I want to display this column on my current library using rest api on the flow.


Please help. I am lost right now.

Re: how to update a column person or field using rest api

Hi @karl_oliverio can I ask a couple of questions please?


You said that the values that you're looking up are coming from a lookup list, is this a custom list within SharePoint or are you referring to the site user list? Do you have any screenshots to describe exactly where your data is coming from and where you're trying to go to?

Did my reply help? Please give it a thumbs up.
