Hi @MohamedMo ,


If you want to update multiple values in the person field, you should provide users #Claim. Like below


  "Claims": "User Claim1"
  "Claims": "User Claim2"


I have two lists in my case  List 1 & List 2

List 2


I want to update the users from Person field in List 2 to List 1 Person field.

List 1



Flow Steps:

1- Get Items from List 2 & initialize variable


Above variable will hold the value of users to update in another list. It should be array type.


2- Build the users Claim



From : select the multi value person field from dynamic content

Map : Calims | Select the person claim from dynamic content



Set the variable value with the Output of the Select action.


3- Update 



Update the set variable.
