SharePoint Online people picker issue RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello  Group,

    Need an urgent help. How do I update a people picker field using POSTMAN? I have done that though PS script, C# using REST API. Used EnsureUser Object to create a user object that can be passed on the people picker. 

    I have the Office365 email that I need to update/insert into SharePoint online people picker using POSTMAN. 

    I think email string cannot be directly assigned to the people picker.

    Any hint/suggestion would be of create help.

  • Hi Aniruddha,

    You can get the User Id base on the email using REST API, and then update the people field using the user id in REST API. If you want to use REST API to access SharePoint online in POSTMAN, the following articles for your reference.

  • Hello Dennis,

    As we are using SharePoint Online as a backend, we have created <g class="gr_ gr_115 gr-alert gr_gramm gr_inline_cards gr_run_anim Grammar only-ins replaceWithoutSep" data-gr-id="115" id="115">single</g> line of text instead of people picker. Just as an alternative route. So the above has not been tested but I think should work.

    Thanks
