UserPhotoMetaData UserID Error

Hey guys,


Sorry, I know that there are many discussion opened about this matter but I didn't understand if there is a solution or if Microsoft team is working on it.

I have tried many ways to avoid the error but without success. What is funny is that the code is working, but with this annoying error message.





Office365Users.UserPhotoMetadata failed: The method 'UserPhotoMetadata' has an invalid value for parameter 'userId'



I have tried but unfortunately I still getting the error.

It is so frustrating because it is working but showing this error. I can't publish this version with this error being showing to the users.


Thank you so much for your support and time.



There is one more thing I would suggest you to try out. Try exporting the app in the current state and import it as a new app and then try it out. It might work that way!


Hope this Helps!

It is so frustrating, I have tried what you have suggested but no success. 😕



Hey @wagnerfraga It is frustrating but can we give it another try? 


Expression: If(!IsBlank(ThisItem.Email),If(Office365Users.UserPhotoMetadata(ThisItem.Email).HasPhoto=true,Office365Users.UserPhotoV2(ThisItem.Email),SampleImage))
Please try to use this one. There is a similar thread which resolved the error by putting a if condition around the ID and then referring to the same ID in office365 connector.
Hope this Helps!

@wagnerfraga  Glad that it Worked!!


I am still getting a similar error with the following formula:




Any ideas? I feel like I have tried everything. No errors appear in the app checker, and it can be published, and it works fine, but it keeps throwing this error.
