The specified user could not be found. Sharepoint Create item

Hey Community,


Having an issue setting a Person field in the "Create Item" sharepoint connector. I can add the person manually into the list, and they can also be located in the "Get User Profile (V2)" action, but they cannot be located when creating the item.


I would prefer not to make a switch that populates that field if the person can be found or not, because the person can actually be found?

@Hardesh15, all those screenshots are supposed to show is that im passing the same email into both the "Get User Profile (V2)" and into "Create Item" with a Person Claim, but the Get user Profile succeeds while the Create Item cannot find the person. 


In both cases I'm passing in the Response email address from a Forms submission. I also tried switching the input from multi input to single input for the Person field in the Sharepoint list. SO my input payload went from:


         "Claims" : ""


 to just the email address:



@KhanMechAI  Please check this email with action- Get User Profile . let me know if you are getting profile properties?

Please 'Thumbs Up' the posts that helped you and 'Mark as Solution' if my post answered your question.
