Assistance with Adding a user to a Group

Hello gang,

 

I've been looking for solutions online to automatically add a user to a SharePoint 'Group' in the onboarding phase of my flow.

I'm attempting to do this with the 'Send an HTTP request to SharePoint' module. This is designed to allocate users access to their department SharePoint page based on the permissions I've established.

 

HTTPrequest2.png
error message

HTTPrequest.png

I'm new to this, So I'm trying to make sense of this error I'm getting when testing this function.

- If someone could assist me in finding where to point the 'URI' address.HTTPrequest4.png

And how to validate this is the correct url addr.

- As well as how to find the group id (is that found in the url in the 'site permissions' (HTTPrequest3.png)

- In the 'Body' Am I correct in the assumption that this requires the {'type':'SP.User'} (referring to Share point user) And their associated 'LoginName'.

- And why I'm getting an invalid type response when I run this function. 

 

Any help will be greatly appreciated

 

thank you

Hi @w0rmsp17 ,

 

You need to add two underscores in front of the metadata instead of one.

Please refer to this similar thread and see if it helps:

https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Building-Flows/Adding-users-to-a-SharePoint-Group/m-p/309811

In addition, you could refer to the SharePoint Rest API. Basically, all configuration of the body needs to start with __metadata, not _metadata.

 

Please try again.
