Re: How to set Managers for users in-order to use PowerApps GetManager

Hi @Ahmed_Faizan ,

Do you want to update office profile's manager?

I'm afraid it's not supported to update office profile's manager in powerapps currently.

You could only update these data of office profile:

Parameters

Name Key Required Type Description
About Me
aboutMe   string

About Me

Birthday
birthday   date-time

Birthday

Interests
Interests   string

About Me

My Site
mySite   string

My Site

Past Projects
Past Projects   string

About Me

Schools
Schools   string

About Me

Skills
Skills   string

About Me

What's more, using powershell is also not supported.

You could only update these data:

  • -Department "<department name>"

  • -DisplayName "<full user name>"

  • -FacsimilieTelephoneNumber "<fax number>"

  • -GivenName "<user first name>"

  • -Surname "<user last name>"

  • -Mobile "<mobile phone number>"

  • -JobTitle "<job title>"

  • -PreferredLanguage "<language>"

  • -StreetAddress "<street address>"

  • -City "<city name>"

  • -State "<state name>"

  • -PostalCode "<postal code>"

  • -Country "<country name>"

  • -TelephoneNumber "<office phone number>"

  • -UsageLocation "<2-character country or region code>"

    This is the ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 (A2) two-letter country or region code.

Please refer these:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/office365/enterprise/powershell/configure-user-account-properties-w...

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/connectors/office365users/#update-my-profile

 

For now, you could only update manager in azure admin center:

https://aad.portal.azure.com/

(You need to be global admin)

Choose the user that you want to update, click edit in its profile.

Re: How to set Managers for users in-order to use PowerApps GetManager

Here are a few articles that should help you:

1. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powerapps/maker/canvas-apps/connections/connection-office365-users

2. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/connectors/office365users/

In the 2nd link, look at the first known limitation, it talks about how to set up user records and their managers.

Let me know if this helps.
