User Principal Name attributes

The Get user profile action returns 30 UPN attributes.  I have been able to determine where the data is from or what it is for all but 2 of the attributes.  I was wondering if someone might know the answer to these two.


  • Preferred Name
  • User Type.  User type does return 'Member'.  But from where and are there other types?

Hello @DTooley 

The "Preferred name" is the name to use when communicating with the person. For example - I have two first names, but my preferred name is John 🙂

You could also just have google for this! Don't know about user types!

Kind regards, John
