What is MailNickname for? And what value should I give it?

I'm trying to clone a Team using Flow. I'm using an HTTP request for this. I'd already had it working before for creating a Team but I'm trying to clone one now and I'm having an error regarding MailNickname being null or blank. My main question is what is it for and what value should I give it?

Yes your unqiue group/team name 

 

By the ways, none of my business but you are using a beta action for creating team template

Please note that it is not recommended to use it in Production scenarios until it goes into GA

Which I am sure would be during the Ignite timeframe

Hi @Mgodby 

 

The MailNickName parameter specifies the alias for the associated Office 365 Group. This value will be used for the mail enabled object and will be used as PrimarySmtpAddress for this Office 365 Group. The value of the MailNickName parameter has to be unique across your tenant.

Thank you for the reply RezaDorrani. I am just wondering what the format of the MailNickname is. Is it an email address with the tenant as the domain? Because in the link you provided they only used "TestTeam" for the MailNickname. Is it just like a unique name? So could I just put in "PracticeTeam1"? Would that work? Is it also recommended that I ad some form of Id to make sure that it stays unique?

Thank you so much for the help. Should I use "v1.0" instead of beta? Thank for letting me know, this is a Flow that I took over from someone else so I just went along with it.

Yes absolutely and it seems it is in GA (v 1.0)
