Hi @ppl ,

This is a frequent issue when using lookup fields in flow. You need to use entityset name instead of pure guids. So to write a reference to a contact you need to write contacts(11c43ee8-b9d3-4e51-b73f-bd9dda66e29c) instead of pure guid. See this article for more details - https://linnzawwin.blogspot.com/2019/11/power-automate-how-to-set-lookup-field.html.

@ppl ,

 

Try /contacts/unique identifier of the contact in invite contact.

 

To associate you cannot just pass guid of the record. It has to be /plural entity name (which you get from webapi)/unique identifier of the record

 

If it answers your question, kindly give kudo and accept it as solution.

 

 

Regards,

Prakash
