Permission level for Get User Information

Hi all,

 

I am getting 403 error while getting user information into the Microsoft Flow. Does anyone has Idea which exact permission role is required to get other users information into the Flow (Like SharePoint Site Collection Admin, or Global Admin etc.)

 

please address me the right solution.

 

Thanks in Advance,

Dev_Nikhil

Hi @Dev_Nikhil ,

 

I did a test on my side and created a connection for Get user profile action using the account of the user who was not assigned any admin role. It also gets the profile of the specified user.

If you are a Global Admin, you don't need to consider permissions. The features in Office 365 should work fine, as long as the corresponding license is assigned.

 

The permissions required for Get my profile action seem to have little to do with admin role. Please refer to the following online doc to see the permissions is required to call Get user API.

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/graph/api/user-get?view=graph-rest-1.0

 

Hope it helps.
