How to handle an empty collection

I am using the Org Browser sample app and am running into a problem.

When you navigate through the org chart and reach the top (The Big Boss) This error appears:

 

Office365Users.Manager failed: { "status": 404, "message": "No manager found for the specified user.\r\nclientRequestId: a270075b-3cb3-4c77-a968-22140088cc77", "source": "office365users-cus.azconn-cus.p.azurewebsites.net" }

 

The Manager field for the user is empty.

How can I catch this so it doesn't show the error?

I've tried IsError, IsEmpty(Manager), IsBlank, and Hari Kari.

 

ClearCollect(Employee, Manager);
IfError(If(!IsEmpty(Manager),ClearCollect(Manager, Office365Users.Manager(First(Employee).Id))),"");
Navigate(OrganizationScreen, Fade)

 

ClearCollect(Employee, Manager);
If(!IsEmpty(Manager),ClearCollect(Manager, Office365Users.Manager(First(Employee).Id)),"");
Navigate(OrganizationScreen, Fade)

 

None of which work.

 

Please help.

Thanks

Ron

Re: How to handle an empty collection

Hi @Capt_Ron,

 

This seems to be the limitation of the Office365Users Connection. If there is no Manager for the corresponding user ID, then the Office365Users.Manager() function would throw the error.

 

You could refer to below thread as the temporary workaround:

Re: How to handle an empty collection

Mona,

Thank you.

The work around was posted over a year ago.  No movement on this?

How come I can't trap the error?  If I could trap the error, I could substitute the field or hide it.
