Edit item people column The specified user i:0#.f|membership| could not be found

Hi

 

I have a weird issue in my power app.

I have a form with a column named "Select Approver"


Items list users.
Update =

If(DataCardValue1.Selected.Value = "Access Request",
{ 
  '@odata.type':"#Microsoft.Azure.Connectors.SharePoint.SPListExpandedUser",
  Department: "",  
  DisplayName:DataCardValue29.Selected.displayName,
  Claims:"i:0#.f|membership|" & DataCardValue29.Selected.mail,   
  Email:DataCardValue29.Selected.mail,
  JobTitle: "",
  Picture: ""
}, Blank())

 

When i create and submit a new item to SharePoint using SubmitForm everything works and the user is displayed correctly in the SharePoint people column.

 

Now if i go to the item and select Edit and i try to save it i get the following error.
The specified user i:0#.f|membership| could not be found.

 

But if i Edit the item and re-select the user in the combobox "Select Approver" then saving it works fine without any error. But i need to re-select the user even if it is already selected.

@mdevaney Thank you for answering.

 

I found the issue.
In the update i need to put = DataCardValue29.Selected

And in Default i put

 

If(DataCardValue1.Selected.Value = "Access Request",
{ 
  '@odata.type':"#Microsoft.Azure.Connectors.SharePoint.SPListExpandedUser",
  Department: "",  
  DisplayName:DataCardValue29.Selected.displayName,
  Claims:"i:0#.f|membership|" & DataCardValue29.Selected.mail,   
  Email:DataCardValue29.Selected.mail,
  JobTitle: "",
  Picture: ""
}, Blank())

@JimmyWork 

Type this code into the Text property of a label.  What does it display when your form is in Edit Mode right before clicking Save where the problem occurs.

"i:0#.f|membership|" & DataCardValue29.Selected.mail
