userProfile Variable

Just a heads up if you find yourself in a similar position.

I have a global variable called userProfile which is set on APP start to the current user,

 

Set(userProfile, Office365Users.MyProfile())

 

If the current user is an APP owner, then they can switch to debug mode and select the current user, I do this on clicking the users image.

If(_IsAdmin, Set(userProfile, {});
Set(_Debug, !_Debug);
If( _Debug, 
Set(userProfile, Office365Users.UserProfileV2("selected user email")),
Set(userProfile, Office365Users.MyProfileV2())
);
Select(icoRefresh))

 

However, when you then look at the variable you will notice a really odd thing which becomes very annoying.. The properties of the variable are duplicated and then dropped to lowercase, and the initial properties are blank and ProperCase..

This means all your lookups and filter fail, as the are looking at the wrong case I.E userProfile.Mail becomes userProfile.mail etc...

This is because the two versions of the MyProfile(), UserProfile() and MyProfileV2() and UserProfileV2() provide different cases on the properties.

This is probably intentional but it is easy to miss
