Re: Auto populate manager for user

Hi @sandeepvemula,

 

To get user's manager's user profile and save back to SharePoint person and group column, you will need to have Office365 Users connection as data source in this app. And you can only use Patch to save the data back to SharePoint, but you cannot pick it from the dropdown control.

 

Patch to the Person or group field, which only allows single value.

The record of single person would contain the following values:

 

{'@odata.type':"#Microsoft.Azure.Connectors.SharePoint.SPListExpandedUser",
        Claims:"i:0#.f|membership|mona@wiXXXX.onmicrosoft.com",
    Department:"",
   DisplayName:"Mona Li",
         Email:"Mona@wiXXXX.onmicrosoft.com",
      JobTitle:"",
       Picture:""
   }

So to update with user's manager, you will need to get all these pre-defined values from Azure AD and then use it in this formula and patch to SharePoint.

 

Regards,

Mona
