Microsoft Flow - HTTP Get step failing with access denied

In my flow I am trying to use an Access token generated by a Parse JSON task, in the next step I use that to retrieve a list of the members of a Sharepoint group...


the step that fails is an HTTP GET calling the URI:'GroupName×​')/users


This step is failing with the below error:

{"odata.error":{"code":"-2147024891, System.UnauthorizedAccessException","message":{"lang":"en-US","value":"Access denied. You do not have permission to perform this action or access this resource."}}}

I don't understand why I am getting this error now. What can I do to track down why I don't have access permissions for this?

Hi @pwl2706,


The error message says that you don’t have permission to access the resource. Could you check the SharePoint logs?


Please also check Web Application User Policy to see if there is any policy to deny users or groups in AD groups.



Best regards,
