Add users to SharePoint role

Hello All,

 

I am trying to user Power Automate to add users to a SharePoint site group. I am using the approach outlined in this post:

https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Building-Flows/Adding-users-to-a-SharePoint-Group/td-p/309811

 

I am getting the following error that I don't understand and I am hoping that the awesome Power Automate Community can help:

 

An entry without a type name was found, but no expected type was specified. To allow entries without type information, the expected type must also be specified when the model is specified.

 

HTTPS request:

Thanks, I appreciate the help!

Re: Add users to SharePoint role

Mmm... not sure this is the reason cause, but... did you try by adding a double underscore in front of the word 'metadata'?

Re: Add users to SharePoint role

Yes, it worked. It was simply a second underscore.

 

Thanks again.
