Error at Get Manager

Hello All,


I have a flow where I utilize the Get Manager to initiate an approval flow. For this one user, the flow seems to get stuck with this error whenever it reaches the Get Manager.


Is there a way to resolve this? Error as captured below.


  "error": {
    "code": "Request_ResourceNotFound",
    "message": "Resource 'Bua'' does not exist or one of its queried reference-property objects are not present.",
    "innerError": {
      "request-id": "0f44d449-3176-4e1a-990a-8f94524ff9b9",
      "date": "2018-10-18T03:27:26"

Re: Error at Get Manager

Hi @Anonymous,


I did a test on my side, filling the valid email address in the Get manager(V2)-User(UPN) or the value of the email address, it work fine.


When the content I fill in is not a valid email address, or is not a user in the organization, the error you mentioned will appear.


Generally, the email is filled in here. First, you need to ensure that the content you filled in is a valid email address, and then make sure that the email is an account within the organization and that there is an assigned manager.

Then check if the account configured for your connection is the account of the organization you expect to search. When Flow is running, reconfirm that the link is the one expected.



Take a try and feel free let me if issue still exists.


Best Regard,

Re: Error at Get Manager

Hi, is there an easy way to make it skip a record if the person no longer is in the orginization?


my flow returns a list of several users, then stops when it reaches the missing person - Request_ResourceNotFound

Re: Error at Get Manager

Hi there,

I've received the error today, first time exporting users with flow and have been succesfull with exporting users. I got to the point where I wanted managers but then received the following error. 


"error": {
"code": "Request_ResourceNotFound",
"message": "Resource 'manager' does not exist or one of its queried reference-property objects are not present.",
"innerError": {
All users (77) worked fine except for 1 user. 
I'm not sure what to look for, its the director so of course there wouldn't be any manager information but it fails the whole flow run even though it seemed to have worked for everyone.

Would any1 know a workaround or if error ignor?

Re: Error at Get Manager

In the interim I've learnt to set "configure after run" to successful & failure. This at least allows the flow to show successful.
