Flows not pulling some user profile properties correctly.

Hi all,

 

Found this error happening on some new flows I've created. I'm using a Flow to update a SharePoint list item with a given user's job title. I can pull their display name and email just fine but the job title is always returning null.

 

I am currently able to access these properties in PowerApps and they appear to use the same Microsoft.Azure.Connectors.SharePoint.SPListExpandedUser object when referencing the field so assuming this is a bug isolated to Flow at this point and time.

 

This has been raised in the past elsewhere here: https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Building-Flows/Dynamic-content-always-returns-empty/m-p/42376#M3...

 

Nothing seems to have been done about it so far so I thought I would raise it in this "found a bug" forum.

 

Cheers

 

Here is an extract of the Author field from the last flow run this morning:

"Author": {
    "@odata.type": "#Microsoft.Azure.Connectors.SharePoint.SPListExpandedUser",
    "Claims": "i:0#.f|membership|roly@company.com.au",
    "DisplayName": "Roly",
    "Email": "roly@company.com.au",
    "Picture": "https://company.sharepoint.com/eforms/_layouts/15/UserPhoto.aspx?&Size=S&AccountName=roly@company.com.au",
    "Department": null,
    "JobTitle": null
  },

Hi rolycityaccount,

 

I can reproduce this issue on my side. When create a flow to get user’s Department and JobTitle, they are always returning null.
