sharepoint update item with blank value

When using Sharepoin Update Item actions, does anyone know how to remove the current value meaning the new value should be blank or empty?


Hi Again @Bob_Taylor ,


If you are referring to send an http request then it would probably be 

The trick to finding this one is to run the flow without any actions then look at the results of that run and at the http request step look at the body section scroll through until you find the field.


Thank you for this. I never thought to run a GET HTTP Request to see the field names. This was very helpful. Got it working. 

Can confirm, this worked well for me for changing values in a bunch of dropdown columns. Simply using a "null" expression directly in the "update item" box doesn't work, but setting a variable to "null" and referencing the variable in the "update item" dialog definitely worked.

Regular Visitor this video by Deepak Shrivastava shows multiple ways to clear. I have tested and verified that these methods work as of today 3/10/2022 

Can you tell me how to keep null in people column?


whats is stringId?  this method not works for me. Can you help?
