Office 365 Search String

Hey everyone,


I was playing with the office 365 connector (search for users) in flow and i was wondering if its possible to use the search term like the following:


Let's say I want to search for two specific users named: "Tobias Mustermann" and "Julian Test" via their name. How would I achieve that? Can I somehome combine those two names in the search term.



Search string (applies to: display name, given name, surname, mail, mail nickname and user principal name)


By testing it out it seems like it is only possible to search for  one specific user via the search term.


Best Regards

Re: Office 365 Search String

Hi @Anonymous,


Yes it is only possible to search only one user even though flow adds an apply each container. You proably need to filter in a condition and create a Yes/No scenario for both user search. Not an ideal solution but it works.
