Cant update sharepoint items with people fields that allow multiple

 

 

Hi,

Hi @RussellGove,

 

I have made a test on my side and you could refer to screenshot below to create the flow:

You could enter custom value in the "PeopleField Claims" fiels as below:

i:0#.f|membership|useremail

 

My flow would run successfully as below:

Best regards,

I dont want to update the claims. I just want those fields to remain unchanged.

I retrive the item just bedfore i update it. 

Last week it was just letting me selecthe field  from the item i previously retririeved. 

Now all of a suden it is forcing me to enter all the claims.

 

 

My FLow looks like thisL

I just want to use the vallues from GetItemAfterRegionalApproval when I update the item.  

 

The output of GetItemAfterRegionalApproval contains this:Capture.PNG

 

I want to use that RegionalAccountManager when I update the Item

 

I tried entering the following expression: 

body('GetItemAfterRegionalApproval')?['Regional Account Approver']

After I entered that expression, saved the flow and reloaded the brwoser the call looks like this:

So It looks correct. But when I rin it the update fails. with this:
